Single game ticket sales will go on sale at a later date (exact date TBD).
Meanwhile, there are still options available for fans to guarantee their place at Miller Park for Opening Day and other popular games with 10-Packs starting as low as $160.

Limited Edition Brass Ticket can be Redeemed for one Future Brewers Home Game
For the Brewers fan who wants the ultimate gift, the Milwaukee Brewers today are offering a limited edition Timeless Ticket that guarantees a ticket to one future Brewers home game, including any Postseason game.
The Timeless Ticket will consist of a brass ticket personalized with an engraving of the owner’s name.
Only 1,000 of the items will be produced. Additional facts about the Timeless Ticket:
- Each ticket is individually numbered, comes complete with a certificate of authenticity and is packaged in a specially-designed gift box.
- Each ticket is authenticated by Major League Baseball and includes its own registered ID number under the MLB Authentication program.
- The ticket weighs approximately one pound, is 6.25” by 3.5,” and sits in a wood display base.
- The cost of the ticket (which includes the brass engraved ticket and the actual ticket to the game of the owner’s choosing) is $1,000.
This unique opportunity allows the owner to redeem their Timeless Ticket for an actual ticket to any single future Brewers game at Miller Park, whether it’s in 2015 or 2050 or whether it is Opening Day or the 7th game of the World Series.
To redeem the ticket, the owner just needs to contact the Brewers Box Office with their unique Timeless Ticket information as well as a photo ID and the date of the game he or she would like to attend. After redemption, the owner of the Timeless Ticket will keep the personalized brass statue to display. In addition, Timeless Ticket holders may purchase up to three additional companion tickets for the redeemed game at the single game box office price.
All ticket redemptions are subject to availability and owners of the Timeless Ticket are advised to contact the Brewers Box Office with their selected game as early as possible. Redemptions for the Timeless Ticket will be become available once dates for public ticket sales have been announced.
Fans may purchase the Timeless Ticket by calling 414-902-4609, or by sending an email to BrewersTeamStore@Brewers.com.
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that the Club will honor retiring Major League Baseball Commissioner and former Brewers Owner Allan H. (Bud) Selig by retiring uniform #1 in a ceremony that will take place at Miller Park next season.
“We are proud to pay tribute to Commissioner Selig with this honor for all of his work on behalf of the Brewers as well as Major League Baseball,” said Brewers Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio. “The uniform number being retired in the Commissioner’s honor is significant, as the existence of the Milwaukee Brewers and Miller Park are a direct result of the Commissioner’s vision. Without his tireless efforts, neither would be a reality.”
This is the first in a series of initiatives that the Brewers have planned to honor Commissioner Selig, who will retire at the end of this year. Additional details will be announced later.
Commissioner Selig said: “I thank Mark Attanasio and his entire organization for this extraordinary honor. The Brewers are a product of my hometown’s passion for Major League Baseball, and it was a privilege to play a part in restoring the spirit of community and kinship that the National Pastime inspires. Knowing the great history of this franchise, I am truly humbled to look forward to a memorable day at Miller Park next season.”
Selig’s dedication to baseball has paralleled his love of his hometown of Milwaukee. His first significant move as an executive was to return Major League Baseball to Milwaukee in 1970, when he founded the Milwaukee Brewers. In its first decade, the Brewers featured some of the great teams of that era, which eventually led to an American League pennant and World Series appearance in 1982.
During his tenure as Brewers owner, Selig earned UPI’s 1978 Executive of the Year award, and the franchise was honored with seven “Organization of the Year” awards.
In the 1990s, Selig began his efforts to build a new ballpark in Milwaukee to replace the aging County Stadium, and Miller Park opened for its first season of play in 2001.
More recently, Selig was honored with a statue at Miller Park, which was unveiled on August 24, 2010.
He became the ninth Commissioner of Major League Baseball, and during his tenure the sport has thrived. As Commissioner, Selig has implemented important changes throughout Major League Baseball. He made popular structural changes in the game, including the Wild Card, the three-division format, Interleague Play and Instant Replay. He put in place the toughest drug-testing program in American professional sports. He also profoundly affected baseball’s economic landscape by instituting meaningful revenue sharing among the clubs as well as successful ventures, such as MLB Advanced Media, MLB Network, and the World Baseball Classic. MLB truly has thrived under Selig’s stewardship: It has enjoyed its longest period of labor peace with its Players Association and has consistently posted records levels of attendance and revenues.
Metal Detectors to be Located at All Gates for Select Games and Postseason
In coordination with new procedures established by Major League Baseball, the Milwaukee Brewers have announced that all fans will be screened metal detectors on Thursday, September 11 against the Miami Marlins and again on Saturday, September 13 against the Cincinnati Reds.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early on those dates to accommodate the screenings.
The Brewers have screened fans at select gates this year for multiple games, but this will mark the first full-screening of all fans attending games. For other remaining regular season home games, the Brewers will continue to scan at select gates.
Fans will need to remove all metal from their pockets before walking through the metal detectors. This includes items such as phones and keys; however, wallets, shoes and belts will not need to be removed. Bags will continue to be checked at the gates. The list of prohibited items at Miller Park has not altered, but fans are reminded that the Brewers will not hold any prohibited items. Fans will have the option of taking the item back to their vehicle or the team will dispose of it for them.
The new protocols are part of a broader security program initiated this season by Major League Baseball. The process of screening all fans at all games will be fully implemented for the Postseason and for all Major League Baseball games in 2015.
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced the schedule for 2015 – the 45th Anniversary season of the Brewers. The team will open 2015 at home against the Colorado Rockies on Monday, April 6 in the start of a six-game homestand over seven days.

All game dates and times are subject to change and road game times will be announced at a later date.
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced details for a Postseason Single-Game Ticketing Opportunity that will give fans the chance to register for the right to purchase tickets to potential individual 2014 Postseason games held at Miller Park.

New Technology Allows Fans to Pour their Own Beverage
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced the installation of two brand new DraftServ machines at Miller Park. After making its Major League debut at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game in Minnesota, the self-service beverage dispensers will be rolled out at Miller Park tonight prior to the 7:10 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Fans 21 and older will be able to purchase a $15 or $25 card that will act similar to a credit card. Fans can use their card on one of two machines and can pour up to 24 ounces of beer in a single cup. Beverages available include Miller Lite, Miller High Life, Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy, and Redd’s Apple Ale.
There is a maximum of two drinks per person per transaction, and fans using the service will need to show their proof-of-age when they purchase the cards and again when they access the DraftServ unit.
Miller Park will become just the second Major League Baseball stadium to feature DraftServ units.
“We are always looking at the latest conveniences for fans as we add to the Miller Park experience,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Chief Operating Officer. “The DraftServ technology is new to sports venues, and we are excited to be among the first organizations to bring it to a wide audience.”
The DraftServ units will be located behind section 127 near the Big B’s Diner on the third base side.
The Milwaukee Brewers will celebrate Fan Appreciation Night presented by Chevrolet at Miller Park on Saturday, September 27 against the Chicago Cubs. The evening will include numerous giveaways and prizes, and one lucky fan will win “The Ultimate Tailgate” grand prize: a 2014 Chevy Equinox and a $1,000 gift card to Pick ‘n Save.
The Chevy Equinox features a custom Brewers wrap (see attachment) and will be displayed at Miller Park and various Pick ‘n Save stores in the Greater Milwaukee area beginning this week. Along with the Chevy Equinox, the Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM will make special appearances at the store locations.
