Being in the center of a huge wine region, it seems almost obligatory that they also serve white wine in the stadium. You should try it, moreover, it’s a good alternation to the beer you get everywhere else.
Also, since the new season 2016/2017 the stadium management has promised to introduce some new dishes offered by the kiosks such as Veggy-Burgers or fruit salads. I honestly don’t know if they German football scene needs anything else than a good old Bratwurst, but why not. Variety is always great!
Prices are average. Beer / wine are 3,90 for half a liter, a Burger or a Bratwurst are 2,90€.
The Opel Arena being built in 2011 is one of the newest stadiums in Germany and thus has plenty of kiosks on the concourses for food and drinks so the queues are minimal which is always a big plus! The food is your standard German footballing food with plenty of Fries, Hot Dogs, Pretzels and Burgers. You can wash it down with an ice cold beer that you can bring to your seat! The beers are around €4 but you will need to pay a surcharge for the cup – which can be refunded at the end of the game.
Mainz might have had the fans in mind when they were building the stadium, but the beer was something of an oversight. It’s Bitburger, as bland a fizzy lager as you’ll find. Though Jürgen Klopp, surely the man who made Mainz what they are, has been the face of the brew all over Germany for years so perhaps that has something to do with it. It’ll cost you €3.90 either way.
