With the MiLB season just weeks away, teams are releasing information about their new ballpark offerings. Today we have news about two new concession items from the Birmingham Barons (Class AA; Southern League) and Parkview Catering: Irish Nachos and Chicken & Waffles.
An ode to the city’s rich Southern food culture, the Chicken & Waffles feature two mini waffles as sandwich buns with a boneless fried chicken cutlet drizzled with sweet maple syrup (syrup available on the side as well). Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day this weekend are the Irish Nachos–a boat of crispy french fries topped with pulled pork, hot melted cheese, savory bourbon sauce, and chives. Fans can find the Chicken & Waffles in the Magic City Grill food court down the first baseline, while the Irish Nachos will be available at every concession stand at Regions Field.
Also new to concessions stands this year is Gold Peak Tea, a Coca-Cola product. Gold Peak’s product line at the ballpark will feature refreshing green tea, peach tea, and of course sweet tea–a Birmingham staple.
The Barons will also be introducing new alcoholic drink products through partner Miller/Coors. A notable addition: an Arnold Palmer Spiked (half iced tea, half lemonade) with alcohol in a 24-ounce can. New lime and pineapple flavored crisp light beers from 2 Hats will accompany Peroni, an Italian pale lager, for the more adventurous palate.
Though they made their debut last season, the chicken wings served at The Switchyard on 14th will see different tossed flavors this year with spicy buffalo and smokehouse honey options.
Parkview Catering is the official in-house food service provider of Regions Field and the Birmingham Barons. In addition to the concessions food, they provide premium catering services to the luxury suites and party areas nightly at Barons games. They also serve up-scale dining and catering for Regions Field’s over 120 special events yearly including weddings, fundraisers, meetings, and parties.
