Where’s Chorizo? Spring Madness at Miller Park!
Well, it was quite the eventful morning here at Miller Park!
If you haven’t heard by now, the fifth Klement’s Famous Racing Sausage, Chorizo, went missing this past Sunday, which first became apparent when he didn’t show up for the Sausage Race during the game.

Well, this morning, we finally found out what he was up to! In preparation for Spring Madness, Chorizo had been hard at work. Not only had he gone missing from Miller Park the last two days, but, similar to Bernie’s effort last year, Chorizo spent the hours mapping and planting over 2,000 Chorizo lawn ornaments in the grass areas surrounding Miller Park and its parking lots.
Each lawn ornament was affixed with a pouch that included game tickets for a Spring Madness game, set for May 21 through May 23 at Miller Park. The Brewers will host the San Francisco Giants during Spring Madness, and Brewers fans can save 50% on most all tickets $38 or less. In addition, Klement’s hot dogs and small Pepsi products are just $1 each for all three games.
Plus, there were also three “Grand Prize” ornaments containing the following prizes:
1.) breakfast with Hall-of-Fame pitcher Rollie Fingers
2.) an opportunity for four to watch batting practice from the field with one person tossing a ceremonial first pitch; and
3.) a home visit from the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages for a tailgate party with supplies provided by Pepsi, Klement’s and Miller
If you weren’t able to make it down to Miller Park this morning, or if you missed out on the lawn ornaments, don’t fret!
First, we are told the Brewers Team Store by Majestic will have a limited quantity in stock. We suggest you call the store at (414- 902-4750) to check availability first.
Second, there will be an online dutch auction at brewers.com, beginning on Thursday, May 17 and ending on Thursday, May 31 at 5 p.m., in which fans can bid on five Chorizo lawn ornaments.
Finally, everyone’s a “wiener” with this special ticket offer!
To celebrate Chorizo being found, we’re offering fans Field Outfield tickets for just $30 or Terrace Reserved tickets for just $10 for the upcoming Friday night or Sunday afternoon Marquee games against the Minnesota Twins (Friday, May 18 or Sunday, May 20). That’s a 50% savings or more off of Marquee prices for this Interleague rivalry! Like the Chorizo, you’ll want to act fast! Visit brewers.com/whereschorizo to purchase!
We hope you had as much fun as we did today! And of course, we hope to see you out at Miller Park for the Twins Series this weekend then Spring Madness, May 21-23!
