#ThrowbackThursday: Chorizo’s Sausage Race Debut in 2006

Today’s #ThrowbackThursday photo is from July 27, 2006, the date we announced the fifth Klement’s Famous Racing Sausage–the Chorizo!

Two days later, on Saturday, July 29, 2006, Chorizo made his debut in the Sausage Race on our very first Cerveceros Day, the annual event that pays tribute to Hispanic baseball.

That race was Chorizo’s only one in 2006, as he was then sent down to the minors for “additional seasoning,” before becoming a regular in the race as of 2007. (For fun–and puns!–you can check out the press release here.)

Just over nine years later, you can join us for 9th annual Cerveceros Day celebration on Sunday, August 10 when the Crew takes on the Los Angeles Dodgers at 1:10pm CT.  The Brewers will wear their special gold “Cerveceros” uniforms as a tribute to Hispanic Baseball Players. In addition, on that day all fans will also receive a Chorizo Racing Sausage Bobble, courtesy of Klement’s! Get you tickets now at brewers.com/allfans.
