‘Tis the season for bratwurst and Sprecher has some of the most flavorful for you!

Gotta have a Sprecher Root Beer Brat

Gotta have a Sprecher Root Beer Brat

Neukirchen Wurst Company, an wee artisanal sausage maker, recently created four styles of Sprecher brats:

  • Black Bavarian
  • Special Amber with cheese and bacon
  • Root Beer
  • Sweet ‘n Sassy, Root Beer with a “little heat”

Here is a recent review in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Because Neukirchen is a very small company, product distribution at this time is extremely limited. Currently, you can get the sausages at Sprecher Brewery, 701 W. Glendale Ave, Glendale, WI, when a representative from the company is here. You can also get Sprecher mustards and bbq sauces, Beer Flavored Kettle Chips and of course, the necessary beverages to make your bratwurst experience complete.

Neukirchen/Sprecher Brat availability schedule for the next three weeks.

3pm-6pm Friday July 26

12n – 5pm Sat July 27

12n – 5pm Sun July 28

3pm-6pm Friday Aug 2

This spring the U.S. has experienced some catastrophic natural disasters, including F5 tornadoes and outsized forest fires. Local and national news have offered glimpses into these disasters, how families and communities have been affected — from trauma to pulling together. We’ve also heard on the ground reports from friends in Oklahoma who told us that even after one month, you cannot believe the devastation. Back in June we started planning a fundraiser for the Oakies and the Rockies (people affected by the Black Forest Fire in Colorado); then the Yarnell Fire that killed 19 Firedfighters occurred. So now, Draughts for Disasters will benefit folks in Oklahoma, Colorado and the families of the deceased Arizona firefighters whose lives have been epically altered.

This being Milwaukee, we are not doing the fundraiser alone. We have many local partners for this event, partners who didn’t hesitate when we asked including: Great Lakes Distillery, Bartolotta’s, Ferrante’s, Larry’s Brown Deer Market, SPiN, Beans and Barley, Rocket Baby Bakery, Il Mito, Sugar Maple, Donald Driver, Renaissance Theaterworks, Iron Horse Hotel, Cousins Subs, Sobelman’s, the Milwaukee Wave, the River Club of Mequon and several more who have donated food and auction or raffle items. But the event will not be just beverages, food and cool auction items. Yes – there’s more, there’s entertainment! Two WAMI award winners will perform, Ethan Keller and Katie Lafond.

We’ve got all the ingredients to make this one of the most memorable fundraisers ever, and we hope you’ll join us.

Thursday, July 11th   6-9ish pm

Sprecher Brewery, 701 W. Glendale Ave, Glendale, WI.

$20 – admission, two beers, live music, food, unlimited soda, raffles and silent auction.

Special Great Lakes Distillery-Sprecher cocktails will be available for purchase, as will wine, rail drinks, water and additional beer.

All money raised will be divided equally between the following non-profits: Operation USA (Oklahoma), Pikes Peak Community Foundation: Black Forest Fire Fund (Colorado), and the 100 Club of Arizona.

*Special thanks to Donald Driver who donated autographed copies of his Quickie children’s books, and James Jones who donated an autographed jersey. #GoPack!

In case you wondered about our upcoming Spring Vendor Fair, here’s a little post with details.

 

Normally we would write a seasonal salutation along the lines of, “Spring is in the air….” However, due to many months of inclement weather we’ll start with a more appropriate introduction.

 

Dreams of Spring are In the Air! Crocus, daffodils, grass, chirping birds…someday soon they will arrive in Milwaukee, allowing us to put away our snow shovels and rain gear in exchange for gardening tools, sunshine and seasonal beverages on the porch.

 

Rain or Shine, Sprecher will host its annual Spring Vendor Fair at the brewery on April 28th

 

Throughout the brewery a wide array of vendors will showcase their products for you to peruse at your leisure. Temptation without unnecessary pressure, what a great way to shop!

 

Take a brewery tour, then while you’re sampling from 15 beers and 9 sodas on tap, wander about and check out what’s available. The selection of vendors has been carefully cultivated to offer you a wide variety of goodies you might personally enjoy, or that might be just right for your Mom.  Mother’s Day is May 12…you can do your shopping at Sprecher’s Spring Vendor Fair on April 28th.  Brewery tour+samples+ easy Mother’s Day shopping = Triple WIN! Added bonus: we’ll have a game or two on our high-definition TV = Home Run!

 

 

Cost: $5 adults; $4 Seniors; $3 Minors. US military personnel with valid ID are FREE. Includes tour, commemorative glass, samples and vendor fair. Tours are offered on the hour, noon-3pm.

 

Book your tour reservation online at www.sprecherbrewery.com, or call the Gift Shop at 414.964.2739.

 

Note: You can attend the vendor fair without going on the tour but you will be charged the tour price.

 

Sprecher Brewery and the Sprecher Gift Shop are located at 701 W. Glendale Ave, Glendale, WI. The Sprecher Gift Shop is open Mon-Sat, 11am-6pm; Sun, Noon-5pm.

 

Maker of award-winning beers and gourmet sodas, Sprecher Brewing Company is Milwaukee’s first brewery since Prohibition.  Established in 1985, Sprecher remains a leader in Wisconsin’s craft brewing industry.

 

 

 

 

 

YOU ARE INVITED to be part of Dave & Carole’s LIVE broadcast from Sprecher’s indoor beer garden this Friday, April 19th, 6am-10am.

Along with their morning hijinks, Dave & Carole will interview Sprecher brewmaster Craig Burge, local personalities and maybe a celebrity or two. But the fun doesn’t stop there. North Star Bistro will serve killer Black Bavarian Burritos, and the Hilton’s Anchorage restaurant will dish up its signature Bread Pudding made with Sprecher Russian Imperial Stout and accented by a caramel sauce infused with Sprecher Hard Root Beer. Mmmm, breakfast of the stars. And it’s all FREE!

Stop in, be a part of Milwaukee’s popular morning radio show and enjoy some great eats and beers in Milwaukee’s original microbrewery.
