Headed to Oracle Park this season? Here's a comprehensive look at the beers you can expect to see around the ballpark. 

Cheapest: (2018 pricing) 14 oz. domestic drafts are $8.25.

Most expensive: (2018 pricing) 22 oz. premium craft draft beers are $19.25.

New for 2019: New local beers added for this season include brews from Henhouse, Laughing Monk and Russian River, which will be available in the general concession areas.

Local beer choices: Oracle Park started serving 16 oz. cans last season, bringing in a rotating collection of options from small, local breweries such as Moonraker, Temescal, Local Brewing, Altamont and Almanac, just to name a few. There are a ton of highly-rated options and they line up with what you’d see at a local San Francisco beer bar. Some top choices include: Russian River Brewing Company STS Pilsner; Moonraker Brewing 503 In Da 530 Double NE IPA; HenHouse Brewing Company Saison; Pizza Port Chronic Amber Ale; Alamanc Beer Co. Vibes Pilsner; Fieldwork Brewing Company People Power IPA; and Plow Brewing Company Pilsner. 

You can also find a large-but-local brewery behind the centerfield scoreboard in Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Plaza, where the Chico, Calif.-based beer maker serves up a selection of beers.

Any brews I can only find in this stadium? The Giants work with a brewery that’s located just a few blocks from the ballpark called Local Brewing Company. This year, the brewery will make a tropical blonde beer, made with fruits from the garden located in centerfield, a custom pilsner for The Gotham Club inside Oracle Park.

Best choices for beer snobs: To be honest, the Giants likely have one of—if not the best—beer menus in MLB. The fact that the San Francisco area is known for its abundance of high-quality craft beers only adds to its authority. There are more than a dozen beers at Oracle Park that rank at a 4.0 or above on Beer Advocate, so you really can't go wrong with any choice if you're a connoisseur. Here are some top-rated options: Russian River Brewing Company Pliny the Elder Double IPA (4.64/5) and Bling Pig IPA (4.36/5); Altamont Beer Works Maui Waui IPA (4.17/5); Almanac Beer Co. Vibes Pilsner (4.03) and Sournova (rotating seasonal sour beer); HenHouse Brewing Company Oyster Stout; Moonraker Brewing Holy Hermit Imperial IPA and YOJO; and a variety of options from The Bruery and Beachwood Blendery, Bare Bottle Brew Co.
