As expected, a Louisville Slugger Field craft draft swap.

As reported previously, the stadium concessionaire Centerplate has removed Beak's Best and Kentucky Ale from the portable draft station on the main concourse at Louisville Slugger Field and replaced them with Cumberland Red and BBC Nut Brown. Browning's Helles and Shock Top remained on the other two taps as of Sunday night's game (thanks, Matt).

Tonight's game is the finale of an abbreviated homestand. The Bats return to Louisville on June 17. It's anyone's guess what will happen after these four-keg each shipments are exhausted. Centerplate representatives have not responded to my recent questions.

I persist in believing that (a) they're pursuing a rotating strategy, albeit without a clear plan; (b) it's great to have craft beer on tap at the park even if it is not NABC's; and (c) Centerplate and the management of the Louisville Bats both need to hear from consumers. Thank them, make comments and suggestions, and let them know that your spending reflects the availabilty of expanded choice.
