The Brewers are back at Miller Park tonight to take on the Toronto Blue Jays and that means a new item at the Double Clutch Food Truck – Maple-Glazed Pork Belly BLT.
Atop the pork belly are oven-roasted tomatoes, bibb lettuce and roasted garlic aioli. This is served with a side of homemade chips for $10.25.
A staple of the Double Clutch, the Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball is also available again and features a 1/2 pound beef and veal meatball stuffed with spaghetti and mozzarella cheese and topped with marinara sauce. That is also $9.50
The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).
I’m very excited because the Brewers Team Store just got in new Brewers Fitness Gear, including yoga mats and stability balls from Cirrus Fitness!
I have practiced yoga for many years and I can’t tell you how I excited I was to learn that the store was stocking Brewers yoga mats!
The yoga mat is 24″ x 72″ x 1/5″ and retails for $60.
The stability balls are available in 55″ and 65″ sizes for $55 each.
If you haven’t been to the store in awhile, you should stop in there the next time you’re at Miller Park–they also carry a variety of different fitness clothing from a wide selection of vendors, so you can also wear your support while you workout.
I’m told the store will be getting in even more fitness items moving forward, so check back often. And of course, I’ll try my best to let you know about it here on the blog!

“High Heat” Burger from AJ Bombers
During each homestand, I’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.
One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.
AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers and the newest addition: Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger.
Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger-$9
Making its debut tonight is Wily Peralta’s “High Heat” Burger.
For just $9, fans will get this AJ Bombers burger patty topped with chipotle ranch, swiss cheese, jalapenos and tomatoes, plus a side of tots. The sandwich is the fourth of several city and/or player-themed burgers that AJ Bombers plans to offer this season.
This burger is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.
AJ Bombers also offers different custard flavors pertaining to the visiting team/city. For the Blue Jays series, they’ve got Maple Doughnut Hole!
I’ll be sure to check in with AJ Bombers often throughout the season to keep you informed on their newest menu items, just like I have been with the ever-popular Double Clutch!

Where To Satisfy Your Craving: Fans can find AJ Bombers on the Field Level, in the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

I’m proud to tell you that I am heading up this group of talented individuals who will meet regularly to share ideas that will be developed into new concepts. They are:
Josh Derouin, Manager of Marketing Systems at PKWARE; Joel Tilleson, Associate Attorney at Falk Legal Group; Kathryn Reinardy, Digital Communications Manager at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra; Andy Nelson, Public Relations Director at Pabst Theater Group; Lauren Hill, Director of Telefund at UW-Milwaukee; David Cohn, Director of Member Services and Communications at Wisconsin State Golf Association; Tarik Moody, Digital/Online Community Manager and Music Host at 88Nine RadioMilwaukee; and Arthur Ircink, Owner/Executive Producer of Wisconsin Foodie.
This weekend is another Brewers Community Foundation Drive for Charity with a school supplies drive during the Brewers series against the Pirates.
Fans attending the games on Friday, Saturday and Sunday are invited to bring new school supplies with them to Miller Park. In return, they will receive a special Brewers player pin. This weekend’s pin is of Jean Segura.
Fans should drop off their items from the time the gates open through the second inning of each of the games this weekend.
Fans wishing instead to make a donation of $5 can also receive the pin.

As you know, the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” an initiative started to raise awareness and funds to help strike out ALS, has been sweeping the globe and has passed through the Brewers Clubhouse along the way.
Ryan Braun completed the challenge last Saturday and in turn tagged teammates Jonathan Lucroy, Kyle Lohse, and Carlos Gomez. Padres Manager Bud Black issued the challenge to Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke, along with Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, and Rays Manager Joe Maddon and Ron completed the challenge yesterday.
And it continues to spread, not only in the Clubhouse, but throughout the organization.
Last week, we announced that Brewers Community Foundation donated $5000 to ALSA Wisconsin on behalf of the Brewers and today, both Brewers Director of Media Relations, Mike Vassallo, and I completed challenges issued to us personally and issued challenges of our own:
But the biggest challenge we can issue is to simply join us in fighting ALS, whether you get wet or not.
ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Recently, the disease has been gaining a LOT of attention from this Ice Bucket Challenge, started by ALS patients Pete Frates and Pat Quinn to help raise money and awareness for the disease.
According to The Wall Street Journal, as of Thursday, the ALS Association had raised $7.6 million in donations in two weeks, compared with $1.4 million raised during the same two-week period last year. In addition, over 145,900 new donors have stepped up to the plate to help strike out ALS.

On the off-chance you’ve missed all the excitement over the past two weeks, people have been dumping buckets of ice water over their heads all across the country as part of the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” an initiative started to raise awareness and funds to help strike out ALS.
The challenge has been hitting celebrities, pro athletes and everyday folks alike and the Brewers have been no exception.
And the players aren’t the only ones helping out this worthy cause. Managers are getting in on the fun and showing their support, too.
Yesterday, on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk, Padres Manager Bud Black issued the challenge to Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke, along with Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, and Rays Manager Joe Maddon.
And today, Ron good-naturedly accepted and completed the challenge, with a little help from Coaches Garth Iorg and Ed Sedar:
Here are some stills:
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the famed baseball player whose struggle with this disease and death in 1941 brought it national attention.
And recently, the disease has been gaining a LOT of attention from this Ice Bucket Challenge, started by ALS patients Pete Frates and Pat Quinn to help raise money and awareness for the disease. The challenge is quite simple: Fill up a bucket of ice water, as cold as you can get. Have someone record a video while you dump the bucket over your head. Then share on social media, issuing the challenge to three friends.
Along with the team getting cold and wet for a cause, Brewers Community Foundation has also made a donation of $5,000 to ALSA Wisconsin on behalf of the Club and the Ice Bucket Challenge participants. Click here to join us in our support.
Brewers Community Foundation is hosting its annual “Team Smile” event at Miller Park today. In partnership with Delta Dental, approximately 300 children from Our Next Generation and COA Youth and Family Centers will receive full dental care.
Through this program, children receive free oral health education, dental screenings, dental treatment if needed, teeth cleanings and education on how the mouth and body are linked for overall health.
This is the fifth year that Brewers Community Foundation will partner with “Team Smile” to provide dental care to children in the Milwaukee area. The event will take place in the Johnson Controls Stadium Club on the Club Level at Miller Park. In addition, there will be special appearances from the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages and Bernie Brewer.
TeamSmile® is a 501C nonprofit dental organization, whose mission is to create connections between children’s service groups, dental professionals, professional sports organizations and their athletes. Together, we can provide underserved children in need, a life changing dental experience in which the excitement and allure of high profile sports reinforces the value of a life-long commitment to dental health care. Each child in our program is provided with free preventative care and education, and if necessary dental treatment.
New this year at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park are the “Bobbles of the Month,” special, limited-edition bobbles that you can’t find anywhere else.
Each bobble we’ve had so far has been featured in a very unique pose. So far, we’ve had the Brat grilling (April), the Polish sliding down Bernie’s slide (May), Bernie riding a motorcycle (June), and Italian scaling the Miller Park rock climbing wall in the Dew Deck (July).
New for August, we’ve got Hot Dog and Chorizo sitting in the giant glove from the Power Playground at Miller Park:
These bobbles retail for $89 and are sold exclusively at the Brewers Team Store at Miller Park.
And you’ll want to hurry as once they’re gone, we won’t be getting any new shipments.
