Beer Foam keeps Dodger Stadium beers cold

The MLB Los Angeles Dodgers introduced an exceptional solution to combat Warm Beer Syndrome, a condition that strikes sports fans across the world on hot days.

Beer foam, created by Japanese beer maker Kirin, acts as a lid and keeps beer cold longer while fans soak up the Southern California sun at Dodger Stadium. Dispensed like soft-serve ice cream, beer foam is swirled atop beers before fans head back to their seats.

Something tells me beer foam will be begin making appearances in Major League Ballparks and stadiums across the world soon.

Arigatou Kirin!

Stadium Food Spotlight: Bacon Maple Brat

One more reason to love minor league baseball, a marriage between the Eugene Emeralds and Portland, Oregon’s legendary Voodoo Doughnuts has spawned a new stadium food sports fans dream about – the Bacon Maple Brat.

Made in heaven (Eugene), the Bacon Maple Brat.  Brilliant!

Voodoo Doughnuts has both food-loving and hung-over Portlandians queuing for their famous bacon-topped maple bar and other deep-fried creations. Together with the Emeralds, they’ve transformed a traditional ballpark food into a road-trip worthy gut bomb. Take your standard bratwurst, layer a strip of bacon on top, place them in a maple bar sliced like a hot dog bun, drizzle maple goodness over it and you have a Bacon Maple Brat. Even better, pair it at the ballpark with the local Oakshire Brewing Overcast Espresso Stout for a twist on a classic breakfast combo. Yum.

PK Park

Originally built to house the University of Oregon’s baseball program and located next to Autzen Stadium, PK Park houses both the Ducks and the MLB San Diego Padres minor league affiliate, the Emeralds. The Park is not, however, named after the University’s most prominent backer with the initials PK, Nike founder Phil Knight. Coincidentally, the Ducks have another large donor with the same initials – former athletic director Pat Kilkenny.  His donation helped fund the construction of the four-old baseball stadium.

Sorry Duck fans, Bacon Maple Brats are only available at Emeralds home games. To plan a road trip to grab this iconic grub, see their schedule here.

Stadium Food Spotlight: BBQ Sundae

Rome Braves BBQ Sundae.  The Class-A Rome Braves have one of the more unique stadium food items in all sports – the BBQ Sundae.

An affiliate of the MLB Atlanta Braves, the Rome Braves is the latest menu item featured at State Mutual Stadium’s Bubba’s BBQ Barn. The sundae has a layer of cornbread topped with BBQ pork, covered with homemade coleslaw and finished off with another slice of cornbread.

As long as you have cold beer to wash it down, this is one you’d have to try for bragging rights alone.  The BBQ Sundae also comes with a commemorative cup and a one-way ticket to the stadium restroom.

Come for the game, stay for the food!

Whether or not you are a New York Mets fan you can’t deny being a fan of Citi Field’s the food.  I love going to baseball games, not only to watch the teams play, but for the whole experience.  When the Mets built Citi Field they kept their fans in mind giving them incredible food and beverage options.  You may be hesitant when you see the long food lines, but be rest assured it’s worth it.  The main food court is situated behind center field with a large TV screen so you never miss a moment of the game.

Citi Field joined forces with famed restaurateur Danny Meyer to bring fans; Box Frites for killer garlic fries and BLT hot dogs, shake shack for the perfect ball game burger, and Blue Smoke’s mouth-watering BBQ.  In most ballparks the good food is reserved for clubs…
