MILWAUKEE – Miller Park has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Ballpark Digest Award for Best New Concessions Experience. The award is presented by Ballpark Digest.
“We are honored to receive this award for our new food and beverage experience at Miller Park,” said Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We view the Miller Park experience as much more than a baseball game, and fan satisfaction is our top priority. With Delaware North and many other partners’ support, this project was a very high priority for stakeholders. It proved to be the largest private financial investment since Miller Park opened, and we couldn’t be happier with the results.”
Prior to the 2017 season, the Brewers unveiled a complete transformation of the food and beverage hospitality experience at Miller Park, which included an extensive renovation of the concourses and concession stands. The construction and rebranding of new concession stands, which spans all seating levels of the ballpark, leverages the rich architectural history of Milwaukee.
The new food and beverage program was inspired by the Brewers organizational mantra to “cherish our fans,” featuring a comprehensive rebuild of Miller Park’s food and beverage infrastructure designed by Uihlein Wilson Architects of Milwaukee and built by Hunzinger Construction Company. The project encompassed an architectural redesign throughout the ballpark, including a total of 11 new concession stands in the First Base Ward and Third Base Ward on the Field Level, and two new Field Level full-service bars with a variety of MillerCoors offerings and views of the field.
Many of the new concession offerings draw on Milwaukee’s rich food traditions and burgeoning restaurant scene to expand beyond the typical ballpark fare. Milwaukee favorites (from partner Hospitality Democracy) including AJ Bombers Burgers, Smoke Shack Barbeque, Zaffiro’s Pizza and a new line of specialty tacos, plus an all new line of Klement’s All Natural Sausages, are available throughout Miller Park.
