How's this for good timing - National Beer Day coincides with the Detroit Tigers' home opener at Comerica Park on Friday, April 7. And as it turns out, "the D" is a pretty good baseball city to grab a brew.
In summer 2014, The Washington Post published an article called "The Best Beer in Baseball." It focused on craft beer's rise and which ballparks had the best selection of beers available.
Comerica Park ranked sixth overall out of 30 stadiums in Major League Baseball. It was ranked fifth in terms of beer locality, sixth in terms of quality and ninth in uniqueness.
West Michigan-born brews had a great deal to do with that.
According to the Post, Bell's Two Heart Ale along with Founders Porter and Founders Red's Rye IPA rounded out the top three ranked beers at Comerica Park. Two Hearted and Founders Porter were considered "world class."
The news wasn't so good for Chicago Cubs fans, though.
Wrigley Field finished 27th overall in terms of beer offerings. Both the Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays apparently offer fewer than 25 different types of beer when the league average is 50 types.
