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.
Today, we announced a change to the 2014 promotional schedule: a Scooter Gennett Bobblehead will be distributed to all fans on Sunday, June 29. This collectible replaces the previously scheduled bobblehead of Norichika Aoki, who was traded to the Kansas City Royals.

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away? My how the time flies! In some respects, that’s a good thing–makes Opening Day come just that much quicker!

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!
