Aberdeen: Take in a Game the Ripken Way With the Ironbirds

Right off 95 near the Susquehanna River, the future of baseball is being honed. The Ripken Baseball Complex is not just the home of the Aberdeen Ironbirds, the Orioles NY Penn League affiliate, it’s also home to the Ripken World Series, where kids get to play on miniature replicas of historic Big League parks. Ripken Stadium itself is a jewel with that offers Maryland steamed crabs on the Conrad’s Crabs outfield deck.

Fielder’s Choice, Heavy Seas: Why try a Fielder’s Choice at Ripken Stadium? We can give you 2131 reasons. Served in a can commemorating Cal Ripken Jr.’s monumental consecutive games streak, this American pale lager has flavors of sweet grain and, fittingly, orange. Oh, and it tastes great with steamed crabs. But please don’t try and drink one for each of Ripken’s consecutive games

Triple Play, Independent Brewing: Nearby Bel Air makes a great road-trip break on your way from The Yard to Aberdeen, and Independent Brewing is coming on strong with ambitious offerings like Triple Play, an inspired, if unusual, take on the Belgian triple. It’s cloudy body and hints of lemon make it a great late-summer brew.

Extra Innings— Book a Night at the Courtyard Aberdeen at Ripken Stadium and Walk to the Game: Part of the Ripken Baseball Complex, the Courtyard Aberdeen was built to look like the iconic B&O Warehouse at Camden Yards. Stay over, walk to the game, and buy your designated driver a Fielder’s Choice because he’s getting the night off.
