Brewers Question

Gothamite might know for sure, but I think the minor league Brewers, oddly enough, wore navy and red for many years. the blue and gold, as previously mentioned, was simply carried over from the Pilots and they decided to keep the colors. the 1970 unis even still had the Pilot striping on the sleeves.

That's probably confirmed by the fact that the first (major-league) Milwaukee Brewers logo (the swinging Brewer) was navy blue and red. I think that was designed in hope that the Brewers would get a 1969 National League expansion franchise, which went instead to Montreal. Bud Selig instead got a repossessed 1969 American League franchise.

Quite true on all of the above. In fact, the scorecards from the first year still showed Beer Barrel man in red and black along with AL logos and was similar to the design used for Chicago White Sox games played in Milwaukee the previous two years. Early in that first year, the team managed to get the logo redesigned with the appropriate colors which it kept until the ball-glove logo.

The team also kept the lower case "seattle" lettering for the road jerseys in the first year, so that the lettering read BReWeRS (the e was equal size) in gold letters across the front. By the second year, the team had switched to less striping on the sleeves, a number on the front, and by the third year it had gone to doubleneck pullovers with a dingy blue road uni and the same BREWERS lettering on both.
