Why they might be annoying:

    They're named for Milwaukee's beer brewing industry.
    They lost their first game 12-0 against the California Angels.
    Nolan Ryan recorded his 300th win when he beat them 11-3.
    Cecil Fielder hit a 502 foot home run against them that went over the leftfield bleachers.
    They were the only team to switch leagues during MLB's 1997 'Phase One of Realignment Plan.'
    They lost their first NL game 2-1 against the Atlanta Braves.
    They have a race every home game between employees in Polish sausage, Bratwurst, Hot Dog and Italian sausage costumes.
    In 2003, Randall Simon jokingly hit Mandy Block, who was dressed as the Italian sausage, causing her to fall down and scratch her knee up.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They were the first team to switch leagues since the modern era of baseball (1903).
    Robin Yount became the everyday starting shortstop at the age of 18 (1974).
    Hank Aaron hit his last home run (#755) in a Brewer jersey (1976).
    Rollie Fingers became the first relief pitcher to win the Cy Young Award and the MVP in the same season (1981).
    They became the first team to win a the LCS after being down 0-2 (1982).
    Whenever a player hits for the cycle at home the team's ownership provides them with a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle.
    Their new ball park, Miller Park, has been called 'state-of-the-art.'
    George W. Bush and Bud Selig threw the first pitches in Miller Park history.
    P.E.T.A. can't be too happy with the sausage race.
