Searching for a culinary vacation to ballparks around the nation? You may know that ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is home to Atlanta Braves Spring Training. But how's this for a twist: when opponents like the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox or Detroit Tigers battle the Braves, visiting fans may find a craft brew or two complementing the out-of-market club.
Rooting for the home team? Atlanta's own SweetWater Brewing Company's 420 Pale Ale will be on tap on both the first and third base patios.
But what's on tap when visiting teams come to town? Last year, when the Detroit Tigers took the field against the Braves, Bell's Oberon, a seasonal beer from outside of Detroit, was flowing from the taps. This wheat ale is only available during the late spring until the end of summer, but it was available first right at Champion Stadium during the Atlanta Braves Spring Training season.
To go along with the fantastic selection of beers, some tasty ballpark food concoctions have been created to be a perfect double play for your beverage. The brand new "Fiesta Dog" is sure to hit a homerun - who can resist a foot-long dog covered in chili, cheese sauce, diced tomatoes and tortilla chips? If that doesn't get the job done, the new slider station with miniature hot dogs, bratwurst and burgers are sure to please.
Atlanta Braves Spring Training games at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will be a hit whether you're the adventurous craft beer enthusiast or a traditional Bud Light and Cracker Jack connoisseur.
