Have a Drink
One of the first things Angels owner Arte Moreno did upon buying the team in 2003 was announce he was going to lower beer prices. Is his plaque up in the Beer Hall of Fame yet? While still significantly more expensive than what you’ll pay at the bar or liquor store, beer remains affordable by MLB standards. You can actually get a small beer for less than $5, and larger ones for $6-7. Not bad, especially for Southern California.
Angel Stadium offers standard brews like Coor’s Light to more premium ones such as Sam Adams, Foster’s, Sapporo and Sierra Nevada. There are also various stations where a basic selection of liquors for mixed drinks or margaritas can be had.
Then there’s The Bomber. The Bomber is 20 fluid ounces of refreshing brew, Corona or Pacifico, with a south-of-the-border flair. The key is the salt-rimmed glass (plastic cup, actually) with the lime wedge hanging off the side. If you’re not sold on the idea of having your beer dressed up like a margarita, give it a try. Look at it as having a beer and a bag of salty peanuts without the extra calories. But let the buyer beware: Choose your vendor carefully. Don’t let your server get away with pouring the beer in an unsalted cup and then handing you a plastic cup of full of table salt to dump into your drink, self-serve style. For $12, you want The Bomber served the way it was intended.
Thirsty Bleacher Bums who want to take a walk have a couple of options; they can hang out on the Budweiser Patio in the right field pavilion or the Coors Light Backyard BBQ in straightaway center.
For designated drivers there’s a Diedrich’s coffee station on the first base side of the field level and lemonade stands where you can get the tart tonic. Hey, it’s refreshing, and at $5.25 goes for about the price of a gallon of gas in Southern California.
