5. There’s a Microbrewery at Citi Field

With the growing trend of hometown beers and micro-breweries coming to New York City, it’s no surprise that one of the latest to open up is right here at Citi Field. In 2018 Mikkeller Brewing Company opened their newest brewery, Mikkeller NYC, between the Bullpen and Right Field gates. The location serves up over 60 local and small batch craft beers on tap alongside some amazing food selections provided by various restaurants around the city.

The brewery itself has a separate entrance and is technically considered to be outside of the Citi Field area, which means that you’d have to leave the stadium in order to go, so it is best to visit before or after the games. Luckily, this also means that the brewery is open year round to everyone without the requirement of a ticket to the game. Mikkeller NYC brings a welcomed trendy vibe to the baseball experience and is definitely worth a trip!

One thought on “The Top 10 Secrets of Citi Field, Home of the New York Mets

  1. The Mets Hall of Fame and Museum gave this Yankee fan a good laugh…it was only added AFTER Met fans complained that CitiField was basically a tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers, and had nothing in that honored the home team. Thus, it gave the Dodgers TWO home stadiums.

    An embarrassed Met owner Jeff Wilpon dusted off the plaques of the long moribund Met Hall of Fame and added a few new victims — I mean honorees — and created the Mets Museum.

    First time I went to CitiField, I scrutinized the plaques and cracked up at the sight of Tug McGraw’s having a misspelled word. If I’d done that when I was associate editor their house magazine “Inside Pitch,” back in the 1980s (they fired me on when they sold the paper to “Baseball America” in 1985, another reason why I don’t root for the Mets any more), I would have been flogged as pre-game entertainment.
