You Know What This Minor League Baseball Game Needs? Milkshakes Made With Beer

How does a minor league baseball team plan to get all the guys to the yard this summer? Milkshakes, made with beer. You said baseball? Don’t be dumb. 

The Charleston (S.C.) RiverDogs of the South Atlantic League will allow of-age fans coming to Joseph P. Riley Park this summer to order up Beer Shakes — milkshakes made with beer. Among the flavors are Guinness Caramel, Palmetto Espresso Porter Chocolate and Sweetwater 420 Strawberry.

For those perhaps unfamiliar with the flavors of the beers being used in the milkshakes, certain brews have a creamier richness or sweeter finish than your typical mass marketed pilsner, lager or ale. The Beer Shakes won’t taste like Bud à la Mode (not that we wouldn’t consider that on a warm summer night).

The shakes are the brainchild of RiverDogs food and beverage director John Schumacher. He’s the same guy who brought the Pickle Dog and Pig on a Stick to the park’s concession stands. He’ll also introduce a Peanut Butter and Jelly Jalapeno Bacon Burger this season.

Presumably, you can still get peanuts and Cracker Jack at the RiverDogs concession stands, but fans may find those traditional ballpark snacks boring alongside milkshakes made with beer and a burger with PB&J. We’d just have all of them, and a hot dog with mustard.
