Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Brewers vs Cubs

Rival Team: Chicago Cubs

These two teams originally met in 1997 and the rivalry has been building since. The proximity of the two teams makes it very easy for fans from both the Cubs and Brewers to attend games in the park of the opposing team. Incidents such as the Cubs fan base buying more tickets to American Family Field than Brewers fans, as well as both teams battling for the National League Central crown on multiple occasions, have made this match up a fun and interesting one to watch.

Brewers vs Cardinals

Rival Team: St. Louis Cardinals

The rivalry between the Brewers and Cardinals dates back to 1982 when the two met in the World Series. The Cards took the series in seven games, something that to this day still sticks with Brewers fans. A little over a decade later the Brewers joined the NL Central, and the two teams have been fierce divisional rivals ever since. Few games at American Family Field have as tense of an atmosphere as a Brewers-Cardinals fan, so don’t miss it when the Cards come to town.

Brewers vs Twins

Rival Team: Minnesota Twins

The Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota Twins were fierce adversaries back when the Brewers were in the AL and thanks to Interleague play the rivalry is still alive today. Minnesotans and Wisconsinites don’t like each other very much meaning there are always lots of bragging rights on the line when their sports teams meet. If you want to witness a fun game at American Family Field, then there are few better games to catch than a Brewers-Twins game.

Brewers Tailgate Guide


Tailgating is a big part of the culture surrounding the Milwaukee Brewers, and as a result, you’ll find lots of room to set up a tailgate party outside American Family Field. Not only is tailgating allowed at Miller Park, unlike other major league stadiums, but it’s actually encouraged as you’ll find tailgating pavilions set up all around the Miller Park parking lots.

Baseball fans from all over Wisconsin flock to Miller Park to tailgate and celebrate the beautiful weather and Brewers baseball. All throughout the parking lots, you’ll see grills, tents, coolers, and plenty of bratwursts.

Brats are the unofficial tailgate food of Wisconsin, and you can’t leave Miller Park without having one. Whether you smother it in mustard or sauerkraut or eat it just plain, a Milwaukee brat is a must have before you leave the stadium. Brewer fans pride themselves on their love of brats so enjoy the many brats available both inside and outside the stadium.

Fight Songs

  1. Roll Out the Barrel

    This song is played during the seventh-inning stretch at home games in tribute to the Polish and German heritage in the area

    There’s a garden, what a garden
    Only happy faces bloom there
    And there’s never any room there
    For a worry or a gloom there

    Oh there’s music and there’s dancing
    And a lot of sweet romancing
    When they play the polka
    They all get in the swing

    Every time they hear that
    Everybody feels so
    They want to throw their cares away
    They all go

    Then they hear a rumble on the floor, the floor
    It’s the big surprise they’re waiting for
    And all the couples form a ring
    For miles around you’ll hear them sing

    Roll out the barrel, we’ll have a barrel of fun
    Roll out the barrel, we’ve got the blues on the run
    Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
    Now’s the time to roll the barrel, for the gang’s all here

    Then they hear a rumble on the floor-or-or-or
    It’s the big surprise they’re waiting for
    And all the couples they form a ring
    For miles around you’ll hear them sing

    Roll it out, roll it out, roll out the barrel

    Sing a song of good cheer
    Cause the whole gang is here
    Roll it out, roll it out
    Let’s do the beer barrel polka
