Take me out to the ball game

Take me out to the fair

Buy me some peanuts and a pour-over…

OK, so my quick rewrite of the song doesn’t work too well… But you get the idea, right? This is pretty impressive: Bird Rock Coffee Roasters not only has a presence at Petco Park where the San Diego Padres play, but they do pour-over in addition to espresso. Gone are the days when your choices were a hot dog, a slushy, or a giant pretzel when you went to a baseball game. Now you can get a quality coffee from one of the best roasters in the country.

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is now served at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres, where baseball fans can get espresso drinks, pour-overs, and even drip coffee to go for the drive home.
