After an overnight fire in the kitchen area of Friday’s restaurant at Miller Park, most of the operations and fan accommodations will be back to normal for tonight’s 7:10 pm game against the Cincinnati Reds.
A few areas sustained water damage and will not be operational until further notice. These include Fridays Restaurant, the escalators and elevators in the left field area, the left field Loge concession stand, and the Miller Park Conference Center Meeting Rooms on the Club and Terrace Levels.
The team also has said that fans who have tickets in the Friday’s seating area will be contacted by the Brewers for alternate seating options.

Event will Mark the First Availability of Brewers Single Game Tickets and Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy
Two of the most anticipated annual “signs of summer” are coming together to form the perfect storm for Brewers fans, and it’s all happening in just a few short weeks at Miller Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers have set Saturday, March 1 as the date for this year’s Arctic Tailgate party, which marks the beginning of individual ticket sales at Miller Park. Individual game tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. that day. This is the eighth year that the Arctic Tailgate will mark the start of individual ticket sales.
New this year, campers in line at Miller Park will have a chance to warm up in a Leinenkugel’s heated tent. The tent will be open
both Thursday and Friday from 5:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
To celebrate the coming of summer, the first statewide serving of Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy will be available to a limited number of guests, 21 and older (NOTE: Fans must be in line at 5 pm on
either Thursday or Friday to receive a wristband redeemable for one complimentary Leinenkugel products). Also, Pepsi products will be available both nights for those under 21.
In addition, the Leinenkugel’s Airstream will make an appearance at Miller Park, along with visits on
Thursday and Friday from Dick Leinenkugel of the famous brewing family.
As the largest summer seasonal craft beer, Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy has developed a major league following since its debut in 2007. With increasing growth year over year, Summer Shandy has become synonymous with summer and America’s pastime.
On Saturday morning (March 1), the Box Office windows will open at 9 am for the sale of individual game tickets. Grebe’s Bakery, a new partner for the Brewers this year, will get the fun started with complimentary donuts for those in line. The Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate t-shirt. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ will both serve as media sponsors, and the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls will be in attendance on Saturday.
Please note the following safety regulations for the Arctic Tailgate. Participants will not be permitted to set up camp prior to noon on
Thursday Friday, February 2728. No hand-made or hand-built shelters shall be permitted. No shelters made of cardboard or wood will be permitted. Shelters with a footprint greater than 100 square feet are not permitted unless otherwise approved by the Brewers. Miller Park power sources are not available for public use and gas generators are not permitted on the property. Only State-Approved gas/propane heating/grilling units with fuel-valve turn-offs and self-contained charcoal/wood units are permitted; provided, however, that they must be a minimum distance of 25 feet from the building or shelters. Activity and items permitted on the premises are subject to the approval of the Brewers. The Brewers reserve the right to remove any shelter, items, or individuals from the property.
Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: the Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on March 1; no phone or online orders will be accepted). Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability. Meanwhile, through Monday, February 17, fans can visit Brewers.com and register for the chance to be selected in an Opening Day opportunity to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day and up to eight tickets to weekend games at Miller Park this season.
Tickets for individual Brewers home games can be purchased starting Saturday, March 1 at 9 a.m. at the Miller Park Box Office, at Brewers.com or by calling (414) 902-4000 (or 800-933-7890).
Demand-based pricing, which provides the best ticket value for fans, will return for all Brewers games this season. The pricing will be implemented in almost all of the Miller Park seating categories (excluding All-Inclusive Areas, Suites, and the Uecker Seats).
Beginning with the first day of individual game sales (set for Saturday, March 1), pricing for all 81 games is subject to change. Fans should be reminded that they will usually receive the lowest price when they purchase their seats early. Fans will be able to purchase tickets at the Ticket Office or by visiting Brewers.com, selecting the “Tickets” tab and then clicking on the Single Game Tickets link. For more information regarding demand-based pricing by specific games, fans can visit Brewers.com/tickets.

BREWERS TO DEDICATE A BOB UECKER STATUE IN “THE LAST ROW”
Statue Will Be Dedicated on April 25 in the “Uecker Seats” Atop Miller Park’s Terrace Level
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced plans for a new Bob Uecker statue at Miller Park. Unlike the statues that surround Miller Park’s Home Plate Plaza, this statue will be in the last row—yes, the last row of the Terrace Level at Miller Park.
The statue will pay tribute to the popular Miller Lite “All Stars” ad campaign which featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row.” In the commercial, Uecker ended up in the last row—as will this statue. The statue will sit atop the Uecker Seats in Miller Park’s Terrace Level (Section 422) and will feature an open seat next to it allowing for a perfect photo opportunity.
“I can’t think of a better place to put this statue,” Uecker said. “This will be great for fans and even better for pigeons. You might even be able to see a little part of the field.”
The statue was designed by Brian Maughan, the artist of the four statues outside Miller Park on the Home Plate Plaza—Hank Aaron, Allan H. “Bud” Selig, Robin Yount and Uecker. The statue will be made of bronze, but will also have color effects.
“Bob Uecker is synonymous with the Brewers and his famous ‘I must be in the front row’ tagline is iconic,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “This statue will definitely become a destination for fans visiting Miller Park.”
The statue will be dedicated on the afternoon of Friday, April 25 at Miller Park. More details will be provided closer to that date.
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced specifics of an Opening Day Ticket Opportunity that will allow fans the chance to purchase tickets to Opening Day and weekend games at Miller Park prior to the sale of individual tickets.
Beginning tomorrow, January 21 at 9 a.m. and continuing through Monday, February 17, fans can go to Brewers.com and register for the opportunity to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day on Monday, March 31 against the Atlanta Braves. Due to limited availability, the Opening Day Ticket Opportunity includes single seats, standing room only and some obstructed view seats. In addition, fans can register for a maximum of eight tickets to each of the weekend games (Friday-Sunday) at Miller Park.
Following registration, a pool of randomly selected winners will be chosen and provided access to an online pre-sale opportunity, based on available inventory. The winners will be notified on Friday, February 21.
There is no charge to register. This will be the only opportunity for fans to purchase single game tickets for Opening Day, other than a very small number set aside for fans lining up at the Box Office on the first day of individual game sales at Miller Park. 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 $180. Each 10-Pack includes 10 Brewers home games, plus a bonus of Opening Day or any other game of the fan’s choice absolutely FREE. Fans interested in purchasing 10-Packs are encouraged to call 414-902-HITS (4487) or visit Brewers.com for more information.
Please note: A very limited amount of individual tickets will be available for Opening Day.
I don’t recall seeing an official press release from the Brewers like they put out when the new Miller Lite Party Deck was created before last season, but regardless the Brewers announced to someone that the Toyota Territory behind right-centerfield will be expanded before Opening Day.
Here is a reproduction of an article by Dick Kaegel of MLB.com outlining some of the plans.
“Redevelopment of the Toyota Territory in right-center field at Miller Park is the key element of a multiyear partnership with the auto company that the Brewers announced on Thursday.
The area will be changed from a 24-person private group space to a facility open to all fans. The 1,493-square foot area will be capable of holding more than 100 people.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Toyota and we are certain that the improved Toyota Territory will be a popular location for fans to enjoy Brewers baseball,” said Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger.
The club explained that the concourse level, with an approximate capacity of 75 guests, will be open to all fans at all 81 regular-season home games. Seating and high top tables will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. A raised portion of the new Toyota Territory that will hold approximately 30 people will be open to all fans during 41 regular-season games. Toyota will have use of this section for the remainder of the games for promotions and corporate functions.”
