Miller Park makes top 10 list

CHICAGO -- Men's Fitness Magazine has named Miller Park one of its 10 big league parks worth seeing this summer.

Calling it "perhaps the most beer-friendly stadium in America," the magazine lauded the variety suds on tap, from Miller Lite to microbrews, and encouraged visitors to arrive early for some traditional tailgating. The magazine also encouraged fans to stick around after the game to watch the retractable roof in action, which would have been fine in 2001, but is not always a part of game day today.

The Brewers are entering their eighth season in 41,900-seat Miller Park, the only stadium in the world with a functioning fan-style convertible roof. It has drawn more than 16 million visitors since opening in 2001, including a franchise-record 2,869,144 fans last season, when the Brewers also set a record with 31 sellouts.

The attendance figures will continue to grow beginning Friday, when the Giants are in town for the Brewers' home opener. New features this season include the renamed Metavante Club, an additional FanZone store on the field-level concourse behind home plate and a kids play area down the right-field line.
