SAN FRANCISCO - While the Fall Classic between the San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers pits clubs from two very different cities, the distinctive style and taste of each team's partisans also pours through the beer taps at their ball yards.

In a trendy, gourmet food-and-drink obsessed place such as San Francisco, a generic "cold beer" at AT&T Park often doesn't cut the mustard as a companion to the stadium's pungent garlic fries or a Caribbean-style concoction called the Cha-Cha Bowl.

At Detroit's Comerica Park, where only a couple of locally made beers are on tap, the die-hard Motor City fans are just fine with the unpretentious, established American beer brands.

Concessions directors at both stadiums say each facility's beers reflect the fans — eclectic and diverse in San Francisco, and blue collar in Detroit.
