Mets Police Decade In Review: meet Will the Citi Field beer man

Now that we're well into 2010 it seems silly to keep doing this, but there's plenty of newbies on the site, and it's cool for some of this stuff to see the light of day.

From April 2009, as we got to know Citi Field, Dan got to meet the guy in charge of the beer.

Out beyond center field at Citi Field is Taste of the City- the concession area that everyone (from the Times to NY Magazine) is talking about. This is where you will find Danny Meyer's Shake Shack and Blue Smoke stands,as well as Box Frites and Nona's Deli.

But for me, the happiest moment on Sunday was when I met Will. Will is the man in charge of Big Apple Brews, a beer oasis that will make any beer aficionado smile. A 4-sided,12 door refrigerator stocks dozens of micro and imported beers - and the selection is constantly changing based on sales and consumer feedback.

I met Will while gazing at a bottle of Longboard Lager from Hawaii's Kona Brewing Company. According to Will it was a big seller over the weekend. Not so much the Kirin or Tiger (which only sold "maybe 4 bottles").

Go check out the selection and tell Will the MetsPolice sent you.

Love that place. By far Citi has the best beer in the majors that i've seen.
