New York Yankees beer foam art has MLB all sorts of upset

The newest New York Yankees newest craze, their beer foam art, is too damn awesome yet has Major League Baseball all sorts of unhappy.

You’ve already seen the above photo attached to the above tweet. How damn awesome is that?

A media tasting event at Yankee Stadium on Monday provided notice to one of the New York Yankees potentially newest and greatest features for the 2018 season: beer foam art.

The art will depict players’ faces. From Aaron Judge to Giancarlo Stanton to others, fans at the House That Ruth Built will be sipping the faces of their favorite players (for a pretty penny, no doubt). The art will also work on the top of coffee.

Market Watch reported that images of those players had already been loaded into the machines at the park and would be available starting on Opening Day.

Why is this sudden dash of awesomeness such a problem? Major League Baseball does not permit any team to depitc a player’s likeness to enchace the sales of alcohol.

To the dismay of everybody—after witnessing this photo—the Yankees said Tuesday there was no current plan to sell the player-personalized beers at the Stadium.

“Our hospitality team took Monday’s event as an opportunity to test the image machine with various Yankees-related logos and photos,” a Yankees spokesperson said. “However, the Yankees have no current plans of incorporating this decorative element on concessions items this season.”

So what turned out to be something to look forward to during the summer of 2018 in the Bronx (albeit, for more money), sadly turns into a one-time deal at a media tasting event that dashes the hopes of so many.

Perhaps they stick with the foam art for coffee at The Stadium? Who knows. In any event, coffee isn’t the seller beer is and pretty soon, the real Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton can be watched with real beer.

That’s really all that matters.
