After Milwaukee experimented with green, they got back to blue and gold in the new millennium.

Both the home and away jerseys featured the same design. A new cursive script, like a beer logo, had “Brewers” in navy with gold and white accents. The player number up front remained on both jerseys.

Added were better alternates. The navy jersey got the color and font upgrade in both a “Brewers” and “Milwaukee” script. A gold alternate top was introduced. Also added was the button down version of the 1980s home uniform. This is a personal favorite of mine.

The main lid was an all navy hat with the “M” with wheat logo. The “MB” glove logo returned with the retro alternates. A wise move by the Milwaukee front office.

Next up will be the Pittsburgh Pirates
