Ryan Braun and Aaron Rodgers Open ‘8-Twelve’ Bar & Grill

Fellow sports superstars and good friends, Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, are set to open a second restaurant together in Wisconsin.

This upcoming fall, the two MVP’s will open ‘8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill’ in Glendale.

"They want to provide a venue for their fans to come to," SURG Restaurant Group co-owner Omar Shaikh told NBC news.

"We are very excited to be opening another 8-Twelve in a very special setting like Bayshore Town Center," Ryan Braun said in a press release statement." I am thrilled to be able to continue my involvement in the community and give back to the city that has been so supportive throughout my career."

"With the great success we've already had at our Brookfield location, Ryan and I are excited to bring the 8-Twelve brand to the North Shore," Aaron Rodgers said in statement in that same press release. "The new Bayshore location is as good as they come, and we're looking forward to providing the North Shore community with the unique, quality dining experience 8-Twelve fans have come to expect."

Just in case you’re not a sports fan, the ‘8’ represents Braun’s jersey number, while the ‘Twelve’ represents Rodgers’. ‘8-Twelve’ features a “farm-to-table” concept, with several menu items being grown at local farms.
