Donate A Beer

Let me tell ya, we don't run this here blog for any compensation. We do it because we love Wrigley Field, we love the Cubs, and it sure the heck beats taking a greeter job down at the Wal-Marts.

From time to time we have had some kind folks tell us they really enjoy this site and that they'd love to buy us a beer sometime. Well, the youngster thinks he figured out a way to make that happen.

On the off chance that anyone out there actually wants to buy us a cold one, you can click one this hear button below and have at it. Be sure to leave us a comment so we know who to thank.

Thank you kindly and Go Cubs.

Beer Update at Wrigley Field


Here's the rundown on all of the important beer changes at The Friendly Confines this season.

 1. As we already told you: Budweiser is now the official beer of Wrigley Field
 So that means they are going to sell beers owned by the company that owns Budweiser: Bud, Bud Light, Bud that's half margarita, Goose Island, Johnny Appleseed Cider and a gluten-free beer called Redbridge.

 2. Beer vendors will only carry Bud/Bud Light or Goose Island 312 (Urban Wheat Ale or Urban Pale Ale)

 3. You can still buy and Old Style, but you'll have to get off your keister to get one.
The beer will return for its 63rd year at Wrigley, but you'll have to walk to go buy one.

 4. And I'm not making this up: They're also gonna have themed cocktails 
 While you're up, you'll also be able to get a 1910s Weeghman Park Old Fashioned, a 1920s Upper Deck Gin Rickey, a 1930s Called Shot, a 1940s Day Game, a 1950s Mr. Cub Cocktail #14, a 1960s Alabama Ironman, a 1970s Cooperstown Iced Tea, a 1980s Electric Ryno Margarita, 1990s Home Run Hop or a 2000s Playoff Punch
