Entering his 43rd year as a Yankee Stadium Beer vendor, Cousin Brewski is as energetic and enthusiastic as ever.
I first met Cousin Brewski when I was a kid going to the Stadium with my Grandfather and Cousin on select Sunday’s when a ticket opened up. Cousin Brewski and his contagiously positive and energetic personality always stuck with me as a favorite Stadium memory.
In today’s conversation, Cousin Brewski shares some of his best memories at the Stadium and gives us a great break down of the old and new stadium – he has actually work through 3 different Yankee Stadiums starting in the early 70s.
If you’re one of the lucky fans to have obtain one of his buttons, you know that the Cousin Brewski button is a prized possession for Stadium goers and has since been retired by the Cousin. Brewski’s famous line to his Yankee Stadium patrons, ‘Thanks for catching a buzz with the Cuz’ has been a fan favorite. As Yankee Stadium vendor #17, The Cuz says that death is the only way you lose this job.
A big thanks to Cousin Brewski for talking with us and sharing some of his priceless memories from 40+ years working at the great Yankee Stadium.
