Once you have your Indians tickets, you’ll be faced with an incredibly important decision: what iced cold refreshment will you be drinking. Why bother with other drinks when beer brings you the sweet, carbonated way to relax and have fun at the same time? But, you don’t want to waste your time at the concession stand trying to figure out what to drink; you want to get back to the stands and watch the game. So, here’s a guide to the best beers you can find at Progressive Field.

An interesting beer that you can’t find at many stadiums, Guinness reminds most people of what dark beer means. When you pour this beer, you see its opaque black color, followed by a creamy head on top. The contrast makes the beer look exceptionally appealing. As expected of a beer this color, though mild, smells of dark chocolate and coffee. The taste offers much of the same, but remains full-bodied, creamy, and smooth. The combination creates one of the finest beers of its kind.

Hailing from the completely opposite side of the beer universe, we find Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. Offering a Belgian styled beer, Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat was actually made from a lager yeast. It’s a cloudy, yellow-hazed beer with a thick foamy head that holds together well. Before you even taste this beer, you’ll smell its distinct blueberry flavor. Within the blueberry, lies white pepper, coriander, and mint aromas. Overall the beer has a mild wheat character with just enough hoppy flavor to balance it all out.

Every best beer list should have a pale ale on it, and Burning River makes its way to this one. This Pale Ale comes assertively hopped creating a citrusy, piney flavor.

Here we have a truly simple beer. Make sure you get this beer on tap or from the keg. Its flavor reminds many of a pilsner, but doesn’t have the same bitterness or maltiness. Either way, it offers an easy to drink option that the company puts hard work into. Their brewing process takes twice as long as most other domestic brewing companies, making the flavor clearer and more distinct.
