Today the Milwaukee Brewers announced plans for several new additions to Miller Park, including two new spots to load up on Milwaukee fare.

Two Hospitality Democracy restaurants – Smoke Shack and Holey Moley Coffee + Doughnuts – will join the line-up and hope to hit a home run with their offerings.

Smoke Shack will be located near AJ Bombers (another Hospitality Democracy outlet) on Miller Park’s Plaza Pavilion, offering dry-rubbed slow-smoked barbeque options including three "sammiches" – the smoked chicken, Carolina pulled Berkshire pork and BBQ seitan – along with Kansas City BBQ eggrolls and sides.

Joe Sorge, president of Hospitality Democracy, says the restaurant has purchased a second portable smoker, so it will have the capability to smoke onsite at the park.

Meanwhile, Holey Moley Coffee + Doughnuts will serve its popular craft doughnuts along the first base side of the Field Level concourse. It doesn’t matter if you prefer cake, yeast raised, filled doughnuts or fritters, there will be something for everyone, including a secret new specialty doughnut sandwich.

Brewers’ themed doughnuts are also on the docket.

"We really learned how fun it was to do Packers doughnuts during the playoffs at the shop," says Sorge. "So we’re really excited to do some Brewers’ themed doughnuts too."

Along with fresh baked goods, Holey Moley will also feature locally roasted, freshly brewed Hawthorne coffee – as well as iced coffee drinks during the warmer weather – giving coffee-loving fans a solid option at the ballpark.

Also on deck, Delaware North, Miller Park’s concessionaire, will roll out new items including bacon on a stick, Italian rope sausage, street tacos, baked potatoes (with new toppings) and loaded tater tots.

It will also unveil bratchos, an epic combination of Klement’s sausages, kettle chips, cheese, fried sauerkraut, jalapenos and sour cream, all served in a cool Klement’s Racing Sausage bucket.

"We could not be more fortunate to have the opportunity to pursue the partnership between Hospitality Democracy, the Milwaukee Brewers and Delaware North even further," says Sorge. "We’ve found them to be very generous and ‘fan forward’ in their approach, and I’m excited for the opportunity to be able to bring more of our brands into the mix."

In addition to dining choices, other upgrades at Miller Park include a Season Seat Holder Headquarters, a Loge Level Ticket and Guest Relations Kiosk, enhancements to the JCI Club Patio, new food options at concession stands and increased Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the ballpark.
