The team first played in Seattle, Washington for one season (1969). They were called the "Seattle Pilots". In 1970 they moved to Milwaukee and were renamed the Milwaukee Brewers. Milwaukee has been the home city for several beer companies, including Miller Beer. The old minor league baseball team in Milwaukee had also been called the "Brewers".
The name of the stadium where they play baseball is Miller Park, which was built in 2001. Before Miller Park was built, the team played in Milwaukee County Stadium, which was nextdoor to where Miller Park was later built.
