The Milwaukee Brewers is the next baseball team featured in the 2022 Nike MLB City Connect Series. The team nickname “Brew Crew” is prominently embroidered across the breast as a salute to Milwaukee’s rich sports tradition and enthusiastic fans. Milwaukee’s colorful past, present, and future are represented in this reinvented jersey, with new typography juxtaposing the city’s industrial background with a modern touch. Inspired by summers on Lake Michigan, the new jersey design will debut on the pitch next week, on June 24.
The Nike MLB City Connect Series celebrates each club’s personality, traditions, and values that bring its fans together.

A stylized grill patch on the right sleeve is the final homage to Brewers fans, a nod to the city’s love of outdoor cooking and summer life. Milwaukee’s 414 area code and MKE airport acronym are among the many tributes on the jersey.
On June 24, the Nike Milwaukee Brewers City Connect Jersey will debut on the field.
