One year after introducing the scarce and exclusive 99 Burger, the New York Yankees have unveiled a slate of impressive concession items once more for 2024 -- and, yes, there's something tangible for the beer lovers, too.

These modern Yankees have come a long way from the former stadium's offerings -- dingy hot dogs and hard-to-find Chinese food and that was ... pretty much it? Since opening their new pristine cement palace in 2009, the Bombers have paired up with a number of trusted New York vendors, from Lobel's fine steak sandwiches to Bobby Flay to some truly wild milkshakes from Grand Slam Shakes.

This year, the Yankees have pledged to expand their existing relationships with a few new menu items (Streetbird's new chicken wings, City Winery's porchetta sandwich, Mighty Quinn's chipotle barbecue chicken sandwich), while also making a few much-needed additions to the portfolio. That's right. You no longer need to chase the truck down the streets of the Bronx to get your hands on some Mister Softee before a Yankee game.

The Athletic's Chris Kirschner will be reviewing the team's new options once the whole spring training cadre returns north, and hopefully he'll take advantage of it being five o'clock somewhere as well, because the Yankees have also introduced a stadium-exclusive beer option from Chicago brewery Goose Island this season.

Yankees Concession Items: New York Legendary Ale is Stadium-Exclusive Goose Island Beer

No word yet on whether Luke Voit will be back in the dugout to smash two New York Legendary Ales in his meaty paws. Never say never, though.

The Blue Point Pinstripe Pilsner remains the gold standard, fan favorite Yankees lager entering 2024, but it feels great to have a new challenger on board. The more brewers who want to craft something exclusively for Yankee fans, the better. After all, we'll take any alternative to a bodega tallboy or a hurriedly chugged $12 Landshark Lager at Stan's, consumed as quickly as possible so that the entirety of a Metro North train will stop jostling you.

Who knows? Perhaps we here at Yanks Go Yard will get an early taste of some of these menu items and can report back, too. Yankees, take the hint, please? If a Costanza bobblehead founds its way into the mix, too, that wouldn't be so bad.
