MILWAUKEE — When you see the Famous Racing Sausages at Miller Park this upcoming baseball season, they will be racing without the Klement’s logo.
According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee Brewers have severed ties with Klement’s after the two have been teamed up for more than 25 years.
In a letter sent to Klement’s employees obtained by the Journal Sentinel, CEO and President Thomas Danneker said in part the following:
“This spring we entered into our regular contract negotiations with the Brewers — just as we have done many times over the past 25+ years. We intended to extend and continue our partnership with the Brewers — and more importantly the Brewers family of fans.
“Unfortunately, the Brewers abruptly and without explanation cut off our negotiations. To our surprise, weeks later the Brewers informed us that they signed with another undisclosed company and we would not have the opportunity to match the deal or negotiate.”
“Given our history and commitment to the Brewers this was a surprising and disappointing development.”
