In celebration of National Mustard Day on Aug. 3, the National Mustard Museum in Middletown, Wis. honored Cleveland’s own Authentic Stadium Mustard.

The museum, the only one of its kind in the country, houses more than 6,000 different types of mustards, including Authentic Stadium Mustard, which was inspired by the original mustard served at the Cleveland Municipal Stadium. 

Started by longtime Mayfield Heights resident David Dwoskin in 1969, the recipe has never changed in the 50 years condiment connoisseurs everywhere have enjoyed it. 

For National Mustard Day, Dwoskin’s family helped create an Authentic Stadium Mustard-themed game that combined elements of skeeball and cornhole that served to celebrate the condiment, the brand’s 50th anniversary and the legacy of its late creator. 

Dwoskin’s son, Darryl, says his father loved the museum and helped curate exhibits in its earlier days – and of course – loved his mustard. He adds the game is a “great memorial to have” for his father and the brand’s 50th birthday.
