The midwest brews kiosk if good, even though the line there is generally an inning+ long due to demand. Daisy Cutter and Oberon were made for baseball.

As far as demand, I agree it would be tough/impossible to supply the Sox with Zombie Dust everynight. However, promoting a night about Craft beer with MillerCoors is rediculous. It would have been great to do a tap take over just for the night and invite a bunch of Chicagoland breweries to operate the different concession stands with their offering, and have the beer man sell the Miller offerings. I would be great exposure for Half Acre, Goose Island, Revolution, Solemn Oath, 2 Brothers, 3 Floyds, Pipeworks, Begyle, Dryhop, etc....

Not to mention Im sure you could do a contract brew with a brewery to be on tap year round at the Cell...maybe Pale Hose Ale, or something of that sort. Possibly use "Craft beer night" as a launch for that (wishful thinking for next year)
