In addition to the many giveaways at the yard this year, the Brewers will bring back the 5-County, 5-Day Celebration, Spring Madness (414), Student Nights, Miller High Life Mondays and Kids and Senior Citizens Discount Days.
Fans in the region will want to head to Miller Park from April 20-24, as residents of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha Counties can purchase half-price tickets during the team’s annual 5-County, 5-Day Celebration.
Another great deal for fans comes around Memorial Day weekend, May 27-30 as Spring Madness (414) returns. Fans can save 50% on select seats while enjoying special “414” concession pricing with $4 16oz beers, $1 hot dogs & small sodas and $4 nachos.
Fans looking for start-of-the-week fun will want to check out the return of Miller High Life Mondays, which feature a new lower price this year. Terrace Reserved tickets are just $6 for all Monday home games with a 6:20 p.m. start time, courtesy of Miller High Life.
Also returning in 2016, most weekday afternoon home game kids 14 and under and seniors 60+ save 50% on tickets on Kids and Senior Citizens Discount Days.
Students are also invited to take in the fun with a great deal as every Friday home game is a Student Night, where those in high school and college can purchase $10 Terrace Reserved or $15 Loge Bleachers tickets. On top of that, students can enjoy a special $3 Happy Hour menu – featuring hot dogs, nachos, soda and beer – through the end of the first inning.

Milwaukee to Visit MGM Park, Home of Double-A Affiliate Biloxi Shuckers
The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that the team will close the Spring Training schedule with an exhibition game against their Double-A affiliate, the Biloxi Shuckers. The game will take place on Saturday, April 2 at 1:10 p.m. CT at the Shuckers new ballpark, MGM Park.
“We appreciate all of the work that (President) Ken Young, (General Manager) Buck Rogers and the entire Shuckers staff do to provide a first-class home for our Double-A club,” said Brewers General Manager David Stearns. “MGM Park is a state-of-the-art facility and 2015 was a terrific first season there with the team advancing to the Southern League Championship. We look forward to the Major League club visiting next year and to many more seasons of a great partnership between our organizations.”
This is the first time the Brewers will play in Biloxi. It is the first time a Major League team has visited the Gulf Coast city since the 1935 Washington Senators held Spring Training at Biloxi Stadium, which is now the site of Keesler Air Force Base.
“Having our Major League affiliate come to play the Shuckers is a very special event for the entire community,” stated Biloxi Shuckers President Ken Young. “Fans will be able to get to see Major Leaguers up close and will have a chance to interact with them as well. Starting our second season by playing the Brewers is a terrific way to continue the momentum from the 2015 campaign.”
The Brewers will announce their complete Spring Training schedule at a later date. Milwaukee will open up the regular season on Monday, April 4 at Miller Park against the San Francisco Giants.
Proceeds to Benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced that the team will auction off Opening Day tickets for the 103 “Uecker Seats” located at Miller Park. The Dutch style auction will be held exclusively online beginning today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. until Tuesday, March 31 at 11:59 p.m., with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The “Uecker Seats” are 103 obstructed view seats that are located in Sections 421, 422 and 423. The seats were named after Brewers’ legendary announcer Bob Uecker and the famous Miller Lite “All Stars” campaign. The ad campaign featured Uecker’s famous tagline, “I must be in the front row,” despite the fact that Uecker somehow always ended up in the last row. The seats are located near the Last Row Statue of the announcer, which was unveiled last year, in the last row of Terrace Level Section 422.
The Dutch auction will be held exclusively online and there is no limit of the number of seats fans will be able to bid on. There are a total of 103 seats that will be auctioned off, with 42 pairs available and 19 single seats. Each participant can log on to brewers.com/UeckerSeats starting today, Monday, March 23 at 12:00 p.m. From there, fans can chose the pair and/or single seat options, and make their desired bids. Once the auction closes on Tuesday, March 31, the top bidders for each category will be selected. The final price for each seat will be the lowest bid among the top bidders selected.
Auction participants will be contacted by the Brewers Ticket Office if they have the winning bid. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The Milwaukee Brewers have announced the return of a unique ticket promotion known as the “Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan,” which allows fans the chance to upgrade their seats to the next highest ticket category every time the Brewers win.
Only a limited number of plans will be available, and they go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, March 4. Tickets for this promotion sold out in 2013 and 2014 – the first two years of the promotion – so fans will want to act quickly. Last season, the Brewers won five games during the promotion and fans that purchased this ticket plan advanced to the Loge Infield Box.
Here’s how it works: For just $99, you get tickets to nine select Tuesday games at Miller Park, plus the chance to advance all the way to the Field Diamond Box. You start with seats in Bernie’s Terrace for all nine games, but with each Brewers win, you upgrade your seating area. On Tuesday, May 12, you’ll sit in Bernie’s Terrace for the first game of the plan against the Chicago White Sox. If the Crew wins, you’ll advance to the next seating tier for the following game in the plan.
Every time the Brewers win, you simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket for a ticket in the next best seating area for only $2. You remain in that seat location until the Brewers win the next game in the plan. If the Brewers don’t win, simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket at no cost for a seat in the same section where you last advanced – no backsliding.
