Default Craft Beer Night - 9/28

I would have thought only the Onion could have made a headline like this...

"Craft Beer night present by MillerCoors"

What a joke, there are 100s of local actual craft breweries, It would be really cool to have a tap take over at the Cell, which is what I thought this would be. The Sox are getting roasted, see the comments in the below link.

We would have been better off doing nothing than this. Pretty frustrating and embarrassing.

While this promo could be a billion times better, I am more frustrated and embarrassed by the results on the field.

I think we are all frustrated and embarrassed by the product on the field. But they used all forms of communication (Email, twitter, Facebook, ?Courier Pigeon?) to blast out dont miss Craft Beer night. If something is worth doing, do it right. This is a joke, much like the on the field product.

This is sure to be a hit with those who believe that Leinenkugels is an independent, microbrewery.

Shoot, plenty of companies fit that. However, I would have thought, by the way the 2013 Sox play, that every game night would be beer night ... early and often.

This same promotion was done by MillerCoors at Yankee Stadium this year, and they were ripped about it then as well. And LOL at receiving a plastic pilsner glass.
