GREEN BAY - Since fans last packed themselves into the Frozen Tundra bowl that is Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers added new players via the draft and free agency and the Green Bay area added new food options via ambition and pursuit of the American dream. 

I've also featured a few of those food options.

And, of course, what's a trip to Titletown without a beer or two ... OK, three. Who am I kidding?

For Packers fans visiting greater Green Bay, here's your guide to food and beer.

New to the restaurant lineup

Caribbean Cruiser: This food truck slings jerk chicken, Cuban sandwiches and other Caribbean-inspired fare. Keep an eye on its Facebook events page to find where it is.

May's Eggrolls: There's a lot more going on here than egg rolls, including several pho options. Oxtail anyone? It also serves ramen, a rarity in Packerland. Address: 154 N. Broadway, Green Bay.

Nardi's Affogato Bar: Where homemade gelato meets espresso, literally. A double shot of espresso poured over gelato makes affogato. Coffee also can be ordered in the form of lattes and Americano. Tea, sodas, biscotti, pastries, sorbetto (Italian ices) and other snacks are also available. Address: 109 N. Broadway, De Pere. Read: Delizioso! Affogato Bar, a new De Pere cafe

Sunny's: Fried rice, cowboy ribeye steaks and cheese curds. There's a little bit of everything on the menu. If you want fusion, there are cheesesteak spring rolls. Address: 875 Lombardi Ave., Green Bay.

Skaliwags: A free-agent acquisition. This is the second location of a restaurant that's been drawing foodies to Algoma. The menu changes with the seasons, including the Hawaiian seafood. Address: 2314 Lineville Road, Suamico. Read:Popular Algoma eatery opens in Suamico

Umi Sushi: True to its name, it has sushi rolls. Lots and lots of rolls, including a Packers Roll made with lobster tempura, cream cheese, avocado and asparagus with soy paper then topped with avocado, mango and the chef's special sauce. Address: 2066 Central Drive, Suite E, Bellevue.

Wrightstown River Inn: A third-pound burger for $3.75. A side of something deep fried for $2-$4.25. A perch plates for $11.25. Classic Wisconsin foods. Classic Wisconsin prices. Address: 531 Washington St, Wrightstown.

ZZQ: If pulled pork, pork chili and burnt ends are "Wisconsin style" barbecue, then ZZQ Green Bay delivers. More likely, Wisconsin style refers to specials like pulled pork grilled cheese, Wiscophilly (smoked beef, provolone, peppers), and a signature bloody mary and slider combo. Address: 1035 Vanderbraak St., Green Bay.

All-star dishes worthy of their own story 

a'Bravo Bistro & Wine Bar: The lobster and seafood mac 'n' cheese has plenty of name recognition, but the stars today are the low-carb, gluten-free dishes like the pad thai built on scallions, carrots, eggs and a healthy pour of house-made spicy peanut sauce but goes low carb with noodles made from kohlrabi. Address: 2069 Central Court, No. 77, Bellevue. Full story.

Brickhouse Craft Burgers & Brews: The boss burger here is the El Jefe, an elk patty topped by spicy sauces and cheese and a jalapeno popper. Pair it with a hoppy blonde or IPA. Address: 500 Grant St., De Pere. Full story.

Homemade Southern Cuisine: If you're looking for twist on the classic Wisconsin fish fry, get the catfish. Try it here. Address: 1706 Main St., Green Bay. Full story.

Little Tokyo: Long on experience (opened in 2004) and choices (43 maki rolls), Green Bay sushi fans like their tempura shrimp, which is found in two of the most popular rolls like the Benori with jalapeño and cream cheese that is entirely battered and deep fried then topped with tobiko, scallion, spicy mayo and eel sauce. That's Titletown-style sushi, but there are also plenty of traditional options. Address: 121 N. Broadway, Green Bay. Full story. 

Spork Cafe & Catering: This charming little breakfast and lunch nook is big on eggs Benedict that vary by season and whim of the chef. Consider yourself fortunate if the corned beef version is on the menu. Plenty of other egg and bakery options are also big on tasty goodness. Address: 1760 Riverside Drive, Suamico.  Full story. 

Beer here!

Badger State Brewing: The pilot system constantly brews new creations to keep 24 taps filled. Mean Green IPA is taproom legend while the milkshake IPAs are emerging stars. Address: 990 Tony Canadeo Run, Green Bay.

Copper State Brewing: Pair your beer with the from-scratch pizzas. Start with a flight to find your favorite but include a Platinum Blonde Coffee Stout. Light in color, it delivers a java blast to the taste buds. Address: 313 Dousman St., Green Bay.

Hinterland: Across the street from Lambeau Field, the brewery has no shortage of beer options from Hinterland and guest taps. Scratch cooking and wood-fired ovens elevate classic game day classics like burgers, pizza and wings (duck, not chicken). Packerland Pilsner and Luna Stout are local favorites. Address: 1001 Lombardi Ave., Ashwaubenon.

Beer freshly brewed on a 7-barrel system. Blonde Belgian and Midnight Confection stout are fan favorites. Flights are available. Arrive early to get a seat; this place fills up fast. Address: 2790 University Ave., Green Bay.
