Spring has finally arrived in the Northwest and that means, of course, the return of baseball. For the past few years, I’ve kept you up to date on what delicious craft beers and gourmet food choices you can expect to find each Seattle Mariners season at Safeco Field.
Well, it’s that time again and I’ve been invited back to check out some new offerings for this year’s menu. Ethan Stowell has, once again, partnered with Centerplate and the Seattle Mariners to bring you some amazing creations including: Seattle ‘Wings’ (Taylor Shellfish Farms fried oysters with Frank’s RedHot sauce), authentic Oaxacan chapulines (toasted grasshoppers with chile-lime salt seasoning), and frozen custard cookie sandwiches.
Yesterday afternoon I attended this year’s food and drink preview for the 2016 Seattle Mariners‘ Season at Safeco Field, courtesy of the Seattle Mariners, Centerplate and Ethan Stowell Restaurants. Over the past few years, watching baseball at the Safe has become synonymous with enjoying delicious food and what is probably the best beer selection found in any major league ball park in the nation. I have for you the complete list of beers available this year (including the first ever Sour beer to be served in any major league ball park), and where you’ll be able to find them around the stadium.
I’ll also fill you in on this year’s food offerings, which did not disappoint. Whether you’re hungry for sandwiches, sausages, wings or more, you’ll find something delicious to enjoy while cheering on the M’s this season. My favorite was probably the Porchetta sandwich. I’ll go over each food item for you to whet your appetite.
Last April, I told you about a preview event at Safeco Field where I, along with several other members of the local media, were invited to sample some of the food and drink set to be offered for the 2014 Seattle Mariners baseball season. It was quite a spread, with delicious food including: Dungeness crab rolls, ‘Dirty’ Tots, Manny’s Beer Battered Fish And Chips, and several other delicious offerings. Plus, of course, one of the best beer selections offered at any major league baseball stadium.
I’ve been invited back again this year to check out some new offerings for this year’s menu, including: Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs, the Seattle Burger, Edgar’s Tacos and more. Plus the addition this year of Pike Brewing Company beers on tap and Peet’s Coffee.
