Back in the 80s, food and beverage options were pretty basic at baseball games. Hot dogs, popcorn, and Coca Cola are great and all, but the game experience has gotten so much better over the past decade or so with a focus on local vendors. The Tampa Bay Rays not only have some new food choices from local restaurants… but the selection of beer from the hot microbrew scene here in Florida is a home run. You can go with one of the big labels too like Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra. But if you like craft beers, check out the 2023 starting lineup.

Find them at TB Brews (144/146); Budweiser Porch (149/150); Cooperstown Cocktails (1B Food Hall); Coppertail Brewing (117 & 120); Fresh Vine Wine (3B Food Hall); Vinfielder Bar (208); Thirst & Second (207); Ybor Cantina (Rays Party Deck).
