Bruner Gate: Behind the Scenes

Every home game, Bruner employees and customers cheer on the Ohio State Buckeyes with beverages, brats, and a whole lot of OSU spirit. It’s a tailgate tradition that employees and customers alike have enjoyed since the early 90s.

But what goes into making each of those Saturday games a successful festivity?

  • 1 large fruit tray

Thanks to several employees that go above and beyond the call of duty, Bruner manages to retain the same spot each home game by arriving at St. John’s Arena at 5:30 AM – no matter what time the game starts!

There’s only one more chance to see it all come together this season. Come out and join us for the last OSU home game versus Penn State on Saturday, November 19. Stop by to enjoy a beverage, a brat, and the Buckeyes!
