‘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

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.

Those coming for a brewery tour and tasting Sunday, December 9, 11am-2pm, will get an extra treat. Not only is Santa visiting for Soda with Santa, authors Lucy Saunders and Kevin Revolinski will be here too!

If you know beer lovers, food lovers, Wisconsin lovers and/or adventurers, bring them to Sprecher for a brewery tour and visit with Lucy Saunders, author of The Best of American Beer and Food, and Kevin Revolinski, author of Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide. Both authors will sell and sign copies of their books, making them more personal (and perhaps Ebay worthy).

This is a fantastic opportunity to talk with noted cookbook author and beer judge, Lucy Saunders, about her truly delectable cookbook, The Best of American Beer and Food. Neither complicated nor full of hard-to-come-by exotic ingredients, the recipes in this book will leave your friends and family wondering how you became such a skilled chef of deliciousness. Recipes include suggested beer pairings. As an added bonus, Lucy will serve samples of her Black Bavarian Pork Carnitas recipe. BTW: it helps, but you do not have to beer a craft beer lover to enjoy these recipes. (Ask Lucy why the beer is an essential but not dominant ingredient in the recipes.)

Want a book that’s a little more Wisconsin and craft beer-centric? Author Kevin Revolinski (aka The Mad Traveler) will be selling and signing the newly released 2nd edition of Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide, a travel guide to all the breweries of Wisconsin. The book includes information on over 90 breweries, and other attractions such as beer-related museums, festivals, tours, fish fries, and more. Special offers inside include free beer!

The Best of Wisconsin Beer

Tours are offered on the hour Noon-4pm. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 414.964.2739. Cost: $5 Adult, $4 Senior, $3 Minors. Tour includes commemorative glass and beer samples (21+), and unlimited soda samples for everyone. If you are coming for Soda with Santa, arrive 45 minutes early to make sure you have time for a photo.  Sprecher is located at 701 W. Glendale Ave, Glendale, WI. For more information, visit www.sprecherbrewery.com.
