The newest outpost of the mega-chain will serve the burgers and crinkle fries its famous for, but also add a little local flavor to its shakes. The frozen custard concretes will include a flavor Pie! Oh, My! that comes with a slice of Cafe Latte pie in it. Other local flavors will include Summit, Lift Brewery, Badger Hill Brewery, Grain Belt, and Brau Brothers Brewing Co. beer.
