Among the eight choices are a Chicago Dog (complete with the all-important celery salt, along with yellow mustard, neon relish, diced onions, sport peppers, tomato wedges and pickle spears on a poppy seed bun), Royal Bacon Blue Dog (bleu cheese crumbles, chopped bacon and red onion), and the Kansas City Dog (swiss cheese, grilled sauerkraut and Boulevard Pale Ale mustard). Each of the hot dogs has a suggested beer pairing as well.
