My First Milwaukee Brewers Game


Confession Time

I have a confession to make. Even though I talk about Wisconsin food all day on this blog, I had never been to a Milwaukee Brewers game, until last night! We went on a company outing to Miller Park for a night of good old fashion baseball fun.

What I Ate

Miller Park has an impressive food selection, there were even a few Food Network sponsored carts. I contemplated getting a full-sized batting helmet full of loaded nachos or a BBQ parfait with layers of mashed potatoes and pulled pork, but ended up sticking with the Wisconsin classic- a bratwurst with kraut and mustard and a mini helmet with cheese curds. Since it’s baseball, there’s something special about sticking with tradition.

Baseball and Food Go Together Like Beer and Brats

Despite that I was an intern for a minor league baseball team during college, and I’ve been to my fair share of games, I still don’t know much about the sport. I had to double check with my co-worker because I almost called the batting helmet a “batter’s hat” in the last paragraph. And while I’m working on the baseball lingo, I’ll be a frequent visitor to minor league and major league games alike because brats taste better, beer is more refreshing, and life is good when you’re watching a baseball game. 



Race Over to Miller Park, Home of the Milwaukee Brewers, For A Crazy Sausage Creation

race-over-miller-parkSausagesA Miller Park hot dog made the short list of craziest ball park hot dogs on the Serious Eats blog. The Corn Brat , a bratwurst (not really a hot dog but I’m still proud) wrapped in cornbread and served on a stick corn dog style, ranked among some heavy hitting hot dog competitors. Some other wacky hot dog creations include Pittsburgh’s polish-fusion dog that’s topped with mini pierogi, and the Los Angeles Cali dog which is wrapped in a tortilla and deep fried.

None of them can compare to the gigantic Broomstick dog that has been all over the hot dog news lately. This Texas monster is two feet long, about the size of a baseball bat, and topped with chili, cheese, onions and jalapenos. The real kicker is the $26 price tag. Talk about a “haute” dog!

Fancy hot dogs have been a popular food trend in 2012, and with hot dog season heating up, I bet we’ll see even more franktastic creations to come.

How do you like your hot dogs? Do you go gourmet or does simple ketchup and mustard do the trick?
