2012 is far from over for the Brewers, but the club announced its 2013 schedule Wednesday.

With all eyes on a potential spot in the 2012 postseason, the
Milwaukee Brewers took a brief glance at 2013 on Wednesday afternoon, releasing their schedule for next season.
The Brewers will open the 2013 season on Monday, April 1 against the
Colorado Rockies — the beginning of a six-game, seven-day homestand to start the year.
And with plenty of changes in store for the Major League Baseball schedule next season, the Brewers, like every other team in the National League, will play in interleague matchups scattered throughout the season. That new interleague format will begin May 7 and May 8, as the Brewers will take on Texas at Miller Park. They'll make the return trip to Arlington in mid-August.
Among other interleague matchups, the Brewers will welcome Oakland to Miller Park for the first time ever June 3-5, and the Brewers will make their first-ever trip to Safeco Park from Aug. 9-11. Milwaukee will also play the Twins at the end of May and the Angels at the end of August, and the Astros — who will move to the AL next season — will also welcome the Brewers back to Minute Maid Park in Houston.
The Brewers will take one 10-game road trip and two nine-game road trips, the longest of which will come near the end of the 2013 season in September against NL Central foes Cincinnati, Chicago, and St. Louis.
