The 2008 Milwaukee Brewers season opened with optimism as the team attempted to build on the success of the 2007 season – their first winning season since 1992.

With 12 games remaining in the regular season, manager Ned Yost was fired and replaced with bench coach Dale Sveum. Under Sveum, the team completed the regular season 7-5, finishing second place in the National League Central with a record of 90-72 and winning the NL Wild Card. With the Wild Card berth, the team clinched its first playoff berth in 26 years.

In the NLDS, the Brewers were defeated 3-1 by the Philadelphia Phillies, who went on to win the World Series.
