Our 2023 guide to finding the best beers when attending a Seattle Mariners game at T-Mobile Park

Following last season’s success, it’s safe to assume that Seattle Mariners fans will flock to T-Mobile Park this summer. When they do, they’ll have plenty of beer options. Here is our guide to finding a good beer at the ballpark. Our list focuses on local and regional craft beer, produced by independent breweries located across the Pacific Northwest. (We will update this report once we’ve had a chance to explore the 2023 beer scene at the ballpark firsthand.)

Cans – Craft beer on tap at T-Mobile Park is increasingly rare. You’ll have the widest selection if you stick with aluminum cans. This is my preferred choice for a beer at the ballpark. Aluminum cans offer several advantages, which I discuss below. This year, you’ll find beer in 12-ounce, 16-ounce, and 19.2-ounce cans. PRO TIP: Bring your own beer koozie to keep your beer cold.

Grab and Go Beers– This year the T-Mobile Park offers Mariners fans two grab-n-go beer stations: Walk-Off Brew stations. Each of the Walk-Off Brew locations features about a dozen of the beers on our list. You simply walk up to the reach-in cooler, select your can of beer, and step up to the register to pay. It’s fast. That’s the whole point. One of the Walk-Off Brew stations is located on the main concourse at section 185, above the bullpen. The other is located on the 300 level at section 341 along the third baseline.

Gotta be honest – A lot of beer-loving Mariners fans are going to find this year’s Beer at the Ballpark report a bit disappointing. There are still plenty of good beers available at T-Mobile Park, but the selection is no longer quite as robust or impressive as it once was. Still, there is surely something on the list to satisfy your taste.

What’s Changed – As noted, craft beer on tap is increasingly rare at T-Mobile Park, but Mariners fans shouldn’t get too upset about that. Canned beer provides a few benefits. It’s easier to ensure freshness. Cans are much easier to transport to your seat. Draft beer lines require regular maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about the stadium’s regiment/schedule for doing or not doing that.

What’s Missing – Hardcore beer nerds might notice that the ballpark shut down the cask beer station on the 100 level behind home plate, which offered beer poured from traditional, hand-operated beer engines. It also offered a selection of big, barrel-aged beers. Rare beers. Strong beers. Dark beers. Regardless of your personal attraction to such beers, these kinds of beers proved wildly unpopular at the ballpark and required too much attention and care. It simply didn’t make sense. Still, their absence will upset some people.

A thing of the past. The Cask station is gone.
