Ask any Clevelander about their favorite regional foods and Stadium Mustard is sure to be near the top of the list. We North Coast residents love our mustard, that spicy brown concoction sure to keep you warm during a cold autumn football or baseball game.

Two Kinds of Mustard:

There are actually two different brands of Cleveland mustard. The first is Bertman's Ballpark Mustard and the newer and more common one is Authentic Stadium Mustard. The later is the official mustard of Progressive Field and is featured at 150 stadiums and arenas throughout the United States.

The Taste:

For out-of-towners, Stadium Mustard has a rich brown color and a spicy, semi-hot taste. It's perfect on the hot dogs at Progressive Field or on bratwurst cooked out of the grill. It's reminiscent of a German mustard, but not quite as complex.

Buying Stadium Mustard:

Stadium Mustard is available at most Northeast Ohio groceries. For those out of the area, it can be ordered by the case from the manufacturer's Web site.
