Some of you might know that Turner Field - home of the Atlanta Braves -started offering Redbridge gluten-free beer in July of this year. You can’t find Redbridge everywhere beer is sold in the park, but it is there and the price was reduced from $7 to $6.50!
Right about the time we calmed down about the gluten-free beer news at Turner Field, we found out that Coors Field in Denver - and the Phillies stadium both introduced gluten-free food stands! As reported here previously, more stadiums around the country are jumping on the gluten-free band wagon. Considering the size of the Atlanta gluten-free community, it’s only natural that we have such a concession stand too!
Lo and behold - this week ARAMARK, Turner Field and the Braves issued this press release announcing the opening of the gluten-free consession stand on September 4th- today! The news is both shocking and exciting at the same time! The gluten-free stand is behind Section 106 and will offer :
- Armour all-beef franks
- Sirloin beef burgers
- Chicken sandwiches
- Kettle Chips – 2 flavors
- Oogie’s Popcorn – white cheddar
- Bob’s Red Mill brownies
- Soda, water and gluten-free Redbridge beer
Buns for hot dogs, burgers and chicken sandwiches are from Kinnikinnick. The prices are comparable to the gluten products sold at the park.
Hopefully the gluten-free community here will go out and support the Atlanta Braves and the new gluten-free concession stand! Local Publix stores sell 2 for 1 tickets to certain home games. Please check your local store at the customer service desk for this offer!
