Over the years the Charleston RiverDogs of the South Atlantic League have become one of the standard bearers for creative concession items in minor league baseball. It sounds like that reputation will only grow in 2013 as food and beverage director John Schumacher is set to add a whole new lineup of items that are sure to be pleasing to the paying customers at Joseph P. Riley Park.

According to Ben’s Biz Blog, Schumacher has already been credited with the creation of the Pickle Dog, Pig on a Stick and several other items that have changed the way food and beverate are consumed in Charleston. Now he’s prepared to add milkshakes — yes, milkshakes — that are mixed with beer.

Or as Schumacher calls them: beer shakes, because it’s catchy and it’s accurate.

It’s noted that the beer shakes will come in three flavors: Palmetto Espresso Porter Chocolate (which Schumacher says come from a local brewery), Guinness Caramel and Sweetwater 420 Strawberry. It’s also insisted that all three are delicious.

We have no reason to doubt that.

But that’s not all. There will be also be Moonshine Magaritas for those looking to enjoy an adult beverage at the park.

On the food side, Schumacher will introduce a Peanut Butter and Jelly Jalapeno Bacon Burger, which you can view below, along with Fresh Fried Pork Rinds and Pork Cracklins.

I’ll be honest, the Pork Rinds and Pork Cracklins are more in line with something I’d be willing to try, but I‘m not sure I‘d survive any of the food items.
