It's baseball season, and we're a little obsessed 'round these parts. The MLB kicked the season off on Sunday when the Braves beat the Phillies, but for us Slashfoodies baseball is as much about beers and brats as it is about worrying how our teams will fare.
With that in mind, this week's Slashfood Ate (8) is dedicated to recent brew-related stadium stories.
- Philadelphia Daily News' Joe Sixpack hints at some of the new draft beers at the Phillies stadium.
- D.C. Sports Bog brags about the beers at Nats Park this year. And rightfully so. Do any other ballparks offer up Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA?
- Not too far up the road in Bal'more, Kasper on Tap reflects on what Camden Yards is serving.
- CNBC breaks the story on which stadiums boast cheapest beer prices in the league (the Pirates) and which are the most pricey (thanks a lot, Red Sox Nation).

- The New York Mets turn up their noses at such piracy, lowering beer prices at their new stadium, Citi Field.
- Sports fans, keep your boozin' in line or all of the above will be a moot point: Alcohol sales were banned for game two of the Tigers-Blue Jays series after drunken revelers ruined a rowdy opener.
