The Milwaukee Brewers have unveiled plans to renovate the concession areas at Miller Park. 
The team said the project will be the largest upgrade to the facility since it opened in 2001. 
The upgrades include 11 new concession stands and two full-service bars in the brand new "First Base Ward" and "Third Base Ward" areas on the ball park's Field Level. 
Also part of the redesign is a "Local Brews" bar on the right field side of Miller Park's Loge Level. 
Brewers Chief Operating officer Rick Schlesinger said the new concession areas will, of course, include the basics like brats and hot dogs. But there will also be new offerings, including tacos and mac and cheese. 
Local vendors like AJ Bombers, Smoke Shack Barbeque, Zaffiro's Pizza, and Holey Moley Coffee and Doughnuts will all be available. 
"Obviously we're here to play professional baseball, but the reality is so many people come to entertainment destinations for so many reasons," Schlesinger said. 
He said it's more important now than ever that the Brewers work hard to draw all kinds of fans to Miller Park. People seeking entertainment in Milwaukee have a vast array of restaurants and other options to choose from downtown. 
"We don't look at it as it makes it more difficult for us, but it elevates our creativity," Schlesinger said. "It requires us to be nimble and more creative, and to invest more in the product on and off the field." 
The upgrades will be paid for by the Brewers and Delaware North. 
Schlesinger said the team will not make the cost public, but added it dwarfs previous renovations like the new scoreboard and Miller Lite Deck.
