Every year, Americans put away 7 billion hotdogs during peak season but where did the classic combo of hotdogs, baseball, and beer at the game start?
The tradition dates to 1867, when German butcher Charles Feltman would sell traditional German frankfurthers out of his food cart outside of the MCU park at Brooklyn’s Coney Island.
He would give whit egloves to customers to eat their sausages, but the customers would leave with the gloves, cutting into his profits.
His wife came up with the brilliant plan of serving them out of sliced bread rolls, and the hotdog was born.
Feltman’s hotdogs were a hit! His business quickly expanded to include a restaurant and beer garden, where he served his hotdogs with beer.
A nod to his German roots, hotdogs and beer have been perfect for keeping customers refreshed for hours outside while they watched the baseball game.
