Sprecher Brats – What Flavors, How to Get Them

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

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

Rooty’s New York Adventure

Rooty had a fun weekend in the Big Apple– New York City– land of bright lights, big dreams, fashion trendsetters, investment bankers and a little bit of Wisconsin.

What kinda dogs you selling, Mister?
My Own Chauffeur

After walking several blocks he tried to trade some Root Beer and Rooty charm for a free Rickshaw ride. That didn’t work so he proceeded to the hot dog cart hoping for a bite of a genuine NYC hot dog. Alas, the vendor wasn’t ready to serve so Rooty wandered across the street to visit with a horse whose pulls a carriage (full of tourists) for a living.  Unable to talk the price down to something Rooty could afford (free), Rooty decided to hang for a bit and keep the horse company.

Could you take me for a ride around Central Park?
My Pal Terry

On Sunday morning  Rooty headed to the celebrated Kettle of Fish (57 Christopher St.) to watch the Packers play the Colts. As many people know, and many Wisconsinites set their alarm clocks for, the Kettle is the place to go for Packer games. Word of warning: all though the news is out, in case you weren’t previously aware, get there early or you’ll never get in.
All the bartenders and waitresses at the Kettle do a great job

My buds: Patrick and Adrienne

at keeping Packer fans happy. They sell Sprecher Special Amber, Black Bavarian and Root Beer; have cheese and sausage to snack on; and you get a Usinger’s brat with your entry ticket.  Including and beyond these goodies, the Kettle during a Packers game is a cultural experience. Another chorus of “I Love My Green Bay Packers,” anyone? Owners of the Kettle, Patrick and Adrienne, have put Wisconsin on the NYC map (in a good way).

Yum! Packer Fan Birthday Cake!

Tagline Contests – Enter and WIN!

Fans of Sprecher Black Bavarian and Sprecher Abbey Triple, what do you think of when you drink these beers?  Is it something clever, something pithy, something memorable?  We’re interested in what you have to say and we’d love your ideas for the ideal tagline for each beer.  So much so that we’re hosting our first online contests, one for a Sprecher Black Bavarian tagline and one for a Sprecher Abbey Triple tagline.


1. You must be at least 21 to enter and you must be a resident of the continental United States.

2. If your tagline is selected, we will issue you a $100 gift certificate to be used in the Sprecher Gift Shop or online store.  Furthermore, we’ll give you big props on our social media sites.  We will promote you and your winning tagline on www.sprecherbrewery.com, the Sprecher facebook page, the Sprecher twitter page, and this blog in exchange for complete legal copyright and trademark rights of the chosen tagline.

3. The rules of the contest may change at anytime(e.g. deadlines may be extended).

4. The tagline must not be in use, trademarked or copyrighted by any other entity.

5. No other strings are attached. Normal fairness rules apply—if multiple people come up with the same tagline and we choose it, the first person who posted is the winner.

The Contest:

1. Sprecher Brewing Company’s meta tagline is “Remarkably Good Taste.”  We’re now scratching our heads trying to think of something that makes people think specifically of Black Bavarian and Abbey Triple. “Damn that’s good beer!” isn’t quite specific enough.  So we’re reaching out to our consumers for input.

2. You have until February 23rd, 2011 to send us your tagline.

3. Entries and contact information should be sent to: taglines@sprecherbrewery.com.  We will review all submissions and publish the leading candidates on this blog and on our facebook site for a vote.

4. Winner(s) will be notified via email.  If you are not notified by email, you did not win so please do not contact us.

5. Winning taglines will be published on Sprecher Brewing Company’s social media sites along with a bio of the winner.
