In addition, each Saturday will feature a different craft, cider, or specialty brand from the MillerCoors portfolio that will be paired with a specialty food item, bringing out the flavors of the food and beer for a perfect exacta!  Plus, get even more involved with the horses and jockeys on the track with a new collectable Jockey Card program and Horse Racing Bingo.  Saturdays at Arlington are a sure bet!

    • Featured Beer: $6 20 Ounce Pilsner Urquell, the original golden lager beer from Pilsen in the Czech Republic.  First brewed in 1842, it started a revolution in beer that spread around the world.  Still brewed and packaged only in Pilsen, the brewery keeps the craft of brewing this original golden beer alive and well.**

    • Paired Food Item: Apple, Bacon and Smoked Gouda Panini.**  This clean tasting beer will stand up well to the smoky flavors of the bacon and gouda while complimenting the refreshing crispness of the apple.
