J. Leinenkugel's Barrel Yard unveils menu
Working Brewery Opens to the Public on Brewers Home Opener, Monday, April 3
MILWAUKEE – The Milwaukee Brewers today unveiled the menu at J. Leinenkugel’s Barrel Yard at American Family Field. The inventive cuisine features approachable comfort food that compliments the new design and vibe of the fully renovated space, as well as creative cocktails sure to whet one’s appetite. Notably, the working brewery features specialty beer brewed onsite by the Master Brewers at Leinenkugel’s. The full beer list as well as more information on the uniquely brewed beers that will be available at the Home Opener on Monday, April 3 will be shared soon.
The culinary team took extensive care in creating a menu that offers delicious options that can be enjoyed on game days and non-game days, year-round. From shareables to entrees to house specialties, the menu provides something for everyone – though it’ll be hard to resist Ma’s Buttermilk Biscuits to start the meal. Perfectly crumbly and warm, the biscuits are served with aged creamed whipped butter and hot honey. The shareable Tavern Chicken Wings are sure to be a fan favorite, available in three sauces – buffalo, maple siracha or bourbon BBQ – and offered in one, three and five lb. servings.
One of the highlights on the menu is the house specialty Supper Club Crispy Chicken. Meticulously perfected through dozens of tastings, the culinary team has created a delectable signature spice blend and pressure fried the chicken to perfection. The two-, four-, or eight-piece dinner is served with a horseradish coleslaw, loaded potato salad and house made biscuits. Further, The Best of the Wurst Platter is a specialty that pays homage to Milwaukee. The German themed charcuterie platter features knackwurst, bierwurst, weisswurst and slab bacon served along the fixin’s that include apple kraut and potatoes.
Fans will also appreciate the variety of burgers and handheld sandwiches on the menu, with a favorite sure to be the Duncan Creek Roast Beef Sandwich. The shaved prime rib and smoked gouda are swimming in a horseradish cream sauce and served on a toasted onion roll. Wisconsin delicacies like the Leinie’s Beer-Battered Walleye and Four Cheese Baked Wisco Mac are also sure to please the palate.
For those with a sweet tooth, the menu finishes off with Campsite Churro Donuts with a hearty drizzle of pecan maple caramel and cinnamon sugar, Fruit Pie a la Mode, and Mile High Chocolate Layer Cake.
Specialty cocktails giving homage to up north Wisconsin include a refreshing take on a Brandy Slush, Loaded Bloody Mary and Brandy Old Fashioned, along with new additions like Dragon Fruit Margarita and Blood Orange Spritz. In addition, some creative non-alcoholic options join the menu, such as Blue Dream Lemonade adorned with cotton candy, and Rainbow Lemonade topped with a unicorn lollipop.
On game days, fans are invited to enjoy time at the Tavern Bar, located through the overhead garage doors at J. Leinenkugel’s Barrel Yard, with the ability to order and take drinks to their seats.
