A new season will bring new food and drink items to Sahlen Field, as the Buffalo Bisons (Class AAA; International League) have unveiled an updated menu for 2019.
“With Bisons Opening Day just two weeks away, we’re as anxious as our fans to put this long winter behind us and welcome the return of those spring and summer nights at the ballpark we all love,” said Mike Buczkowski, President of Rich Baseball Operations and Bisons General Manger. “With a full lineup up of new features, fun promotions and great food and beverage options, we’re excited to get a new ballpark era underway at Sahlen Field.”
The biggest change for the Bisons this offseason is the expanded partnership with one the Sahlen’s Packing Company. Sahlen Field becomes the new ballpark home of the Bisons, and with it comes even more of Sahlen’s products. The Foot-Long Hot Dog returns to concessions stands, while a new offering, an Italian Hot Ham Sandwich, will make its debut in 2019. A new Sahlen’s Specialty Station has also been created to feature an All-Beef Hot Dog as well as a rotating Specialty Dog with different topping combinations each homestand.
For fans with a larger appetite wanting to fill up on more than just a hot dog or two, there’s an exciting change in the ballpark’s Consumer’s Pub at the Park. The restaurant is the new home of the Bisons Ballpark Buffet -an All-You-Can-Eat offering beginning two hours before every game of the season with rotating themes and selections based on promotions, Bisons opponents (and the items their cities are known for) and holidays. Fans will have the option to purchase a Buffet-Game Ticket for $29 for adults and $18 for children 12 years old and younger, while fans already holding tickets can make reservations by calling (716) 846-2100 ($19.95/$10.95 for buffet).
As fans tour the ballpark for even more new concession items they’ll find the can snack on the new Breaded Jalapeno Cheese Bites for a quick bite or try out the new Beyond Burger–a plant-based burger that allows fans to enjoy a healthy meal on the lighter side. Ru’s Pierogi is adding a Pulled Pork Pierogi as well as a Chocolate Cheesecake Pierogi to their lineup. Another new dessert item, a Giant Churros topped with sugar and cinnamon, serves as the closer to cap off a night at the ballpark.
Sahlen Field will continue to be a destination for craft beer fans in 2019 with a new four-pack from their Ballpark Brewers Series. The pack will include ‘The Surge’ Hazy IPA (Resurgence Brewing), ‘Czech Swing’ Czech-style lager (Community Beer Works) and ‘Dayburner’ IPA (Big Ditch Brewing Company) as well as a collaboration from all three brewers for the ‘Short Hop’ hoppy blonde ale.
