Before politically correct "wisdom" took over Barrel Man was THE premiere mascot in all the land. You see, the Brewers are named so because of Milwaukee being famous for brewing beer. Barrel Man, is a barrel filled with beer with arms, legs, a face and an uppercut swing. The relationship between the team's name and it's mascot is almost too good for words. Not only did Barrel Man play baseball, he also played Santa. Barrel Man did it all. He was, by my estimation, the greatest mascot for anything that has ever existed in past, present or future of all time. To put it mildly.
