MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers will begin selling tickets to individual 2013 home games on Feb. 23 as part of their annual "Arctic Tailgate," the club announced Tuesday while also unveiling a complete promotional schedule.
Single-game tickets will be available beginning at 9 a.m. CT on Feb. 23 via brewers.com and the team's other outlets. For those willing to brave the cold at Miller Park, the seventh Arctic Tailgate will feature Brewers alumni and mascots, plus some bonuses for the first 2,000 frozen fans in line at the stadium box office.
Fans can begin setting up camp at noon CT on Feb. 21 and must conform to the rules once again put in place by the club. The rules are available in the team's official release.
A very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at Miller Park on that morning, and will not be available via phone or the Internet. But through Monday, fans can visit brewers.com and register to be selected to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day and up to eight tickets to games designated "gold" and "marquee" for the upcoming season.
Among the team's other promotions:
-- The "5-County, 5-Day Celebration" is set for April 29-May 3. During that time, all residents of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Washington and Waukesha counties can purchase tickets at a 50-percent savings on all reserved seats, excluding the Miller Lite Beerpen, all-inclusive areas and the $1 Uecker Seats.
-- "Spring Madness" is from May 20-22 against the Dodgers, with all seats regularly priced at $34 and less available at a savings of 50 percent, again excluding the Miller Lite Beerpen, all-inclusive areas and $1 Uecker Seats. Small Pepsi products and Klement's hot dogs will be $1 each.

On those dates, the Brewers will wear special uniforms, including a "Piwowarzy" jersey representing the Polish translation of "Brewers."
