With the arrival of the All-Star Game to Cleveland’s own Progressive Field on July 9, a local father-son duo is introducing specialized menu items and drinks to their respective culinary and brewery stomping grounds.
Julian Bruell, son of chef Zack Bruell and director of service at Collision Bend Brewing Company, will be serving an “All-Star Lager” at the brewery, located along the east bank of the Flats.
“It’s a late German lager and brewers love to make beers like that,” says Brewmaster Luke Purcell. “It’s going to be a nice straw-colored brew. It will have those hops notes, but not like American hops that are more citrus-y. This is more earthy and is a nice, complex beer.”
As for Zack Bruell, each location in the Zack Bruell Restaurant Group will offer something different for customers to enjoy starting July 6 to the day of the game. Offerings include the futomaki dog at Parallax, the banh mi mini baguette at L’Albatros and cracker jack wings at Cowell & Hubbard.
