Brewers to offer sausage kabobs at Miller Park following the "Create A Concession Contest"
Wisconsin resident Courtney Ring has won the "Create a Concession Contest," a promotion by the Brewers and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to find a new food item to sell at Miller Park, according to Jan Uebelherr of the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. Ring took "inspiration from the field" for her dish, creating the "Famous Racing Sausage Kebabs," one of nearly 1,400 entries in the contest. All five of the Brewers' racing sausages are "represented in her creation: the bratwurst, Polish, Italian, chorizo and the hot dog, grilled and skewered with peppers, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms and pineapple.” Miller Park will serve the dish this season at the Plaza Grill, as well as at two concession stands. For creating the winning item, Ring won "four Loge infield tickets to a 2011 marquee Brewers game, a personalized Brewers jersey and an autographed baseball.” She also “receives four Loge infield tickets to the Brewers' home opener on April 4 and the opportunity to throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a game, to watch batting practice from the field, to have her photo taken in the Brewers dugout and to be recognized on the Brewers' new scoreboard.” Uebelherr notes the Brewers “came up with the contest because they're always looking for ways to get fans involved.” Brewers VP/Communications Tyler Barnes “expects the contest to be held again” (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 2/9
