Looking for an excuse to still watch the wretched Mariners this season? If beer is your main reason for going out to the ballpark these days, this pre-Mariners game event on Thursday, September 2, might be right up your alley. See the details and purchase tickets at this special group page on the Mariners website.

Here are the details:

World Class Beverages presents
Northwest Beer and Baseball!
Indians vs. Mariners
Thursday, September 2, 2010
Gates Open: 5:10 pm / First Pitch: 7:10 p.m.

Come celebrate two summertime favorites – the Mariners and Northwest Craft Beer! Price includes one View Reserved seat, ballpark buffet, and one fresh northwest hand-crafted brew (SBN Note* Additional beers are $10.75/22oz), on a private view deck overlooking Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Brewers from Dick’s Brewing (Centralia, WA), Ninkasi Brewing (Eugene, OR), Skagit River Brewing (Mt. Vernon, WA), Fremont Brewing (Seattle, WA), and Lazy Boy Brewing (Everett, WA) will be on site to help celebrate their fine beers on tap! Event will be held in the Outside Corner (on the 300-level behind home plate) starting when gates open at 5:10 pm. The area is reserved until game time at 7:10 pm.

DEADLINE TO PURCHASE: Tuesday, August 31 at NOON.
Game Date: Thursday, September 2, 2010
Gates Open: 5:10 pm / First Pitch: 7:10 p.m.
Pricing: $46 – Includes a View Reserved ticket & pre-game event in the Outside Corner!

While it sounds cool, you should weigh your other options. A $46 ticket includes a View Reserved seat, one NW craft beer, and a “ballpark buffet” of hot dogs, chips, etc… For the same price, you can get an $8 Center Field bleacher ticket or scalp a ticket for no more than $10 outside the park, and then go sit in pretty much any open seat in the park you want (they aren’t exactly filling the house these days). That leaves you about $35 to spend on dinner and beers at Collins Pub, Elysian Fields, or out at the sunny patio at Pyramid prior to the game. In contrast, the pregame event that some of us attended during Seattle Beer Week was well-worth the admission price, as it included “all you can drink” of some tasty NW brews:-)
