Brewers' Arctic Tailgate at Miller Park returns Feb. 17

After a brief absence, the Brewers are excited to announce the return of the official first sign of spring – the Arctic Tailgate at Miller Park. The event marks the first opportunity for fans to purchase single-game tickets for the 2018 season.

The Milwaukee Brewers have set Saturday, Feb. 17 as the date for this year's Arctic Tailgate, with single-game tickets on sale at 9 a.m. that day.

Before the box office windows open at 9 a.m., The Johnsonville Famous Racing Sausages, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a brat, soda and a Brewers knit cap, compliments of Johnsonville, Pepsi and DN Sportservice. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ will support the event, as well.

On Friday, February 16, the tailgate begins in full swing with a party tent featuring live music, games, activities as well as food and beverages, compliments of MillerCoors. Fans will be entertained while they wait in line for the opportunity to purchase single-game tickets.

NOTE: Online and phone sales for individual games also begin at 9 a.m. on Feb. 17.

Please note the following safety regulations for the Arctic Tailgate: Participants will not be permitted to set up camp prior to noon on Friday, Feb. 16. No hand-made or hand-built shelters shall be permitted. No shelters made of cardboard or wood will be permitted. Shelters with a footprint greater than 100 square feet are not permitted unless otherwise approved by the Brewers. Miller Park power sources are not available for public use and gas generators are not permitted on the property.

Only state-approved gas/propane heating/grilling units with fuel-valve turn-offs and self-contained charcoal/wood units are permitted; provided, however, that they must be a minimum distance of 25 feet from the building or shelters. Activity and items permitted on the premises are subject to the approval of the Brewers. The Brewers reserve the right to remove any shelter, items, or individuals from the property.

A limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event. Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability.

Tickets for individual Brewers home games can be purchased starting Saturday, Feb. 17 at 9 a.m. at the Miller Park box office, at Brewers.com or by calling (414) 902-4000 (or 800-933-7890).

Demand-based pricing, which provides the best ticket value for fans, will return for all Brewers games this season. The pricing will be implemented in almost all of the Miller Park seating categories (excluding All-Inclusive Areas, Suites and the Uecker Seats).

Beginning with the first day of individual game sales, pricing for all 81 games is subject to change. Fans should be reminded that they will usually receive the lowest price when they purchase their seats early.
