Brewers introduce alternate gold 'Brewers' jersey
By / MLB.com
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers today announced that the team is introducing a new gold-colored alternate jersey to be worn on occasion beginning this season. The jersey tops will be worn for the first time by players and coaches on Sunday at “Brewers On Deck” at the Delta Center in Milwaukee.
The gold jersey will feature “Brewers” in blue script across the front. It will join the primary white home jersey, the primary gray road jersey, the alternate blue “Brewers” jersey, the alternate blue “Milwaukee” jersey and the retro “Brewers” pinstripe jersey.
The last time the Brewers introduced an alternate jersey was 2010 when the team added the alternate blue “Milwaukee” jersey.
“Our players have worn a similar gold-colored jersey on our annual ‘Cerveceros Day,’ and the feedback from fans and players has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We believe that this jersey will be a very popular style, both on the field and at our retail locations.”
The new uniform top will be available exclusively at Brewers On Deck and the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park beginning Sunday. The Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park will exclusively carry the Brewers gold jersey through February 3. Those who purchase a gold Brewers jersey at Brewers on Deck will receive a free Brewers gold jersey chocolate bar.
