Break Out the Summer Sausage and Liverwurst in Time for Oktoberfest

With Oktoberfest here, we couldn’t resist talking about summer sausage. European in origin, it captured Wisconsin residents’ hearts during the German migration. Many people settled in the Badger State during that time and shared their sausage recipes with others. Of course they also brought that other great staple with them, beer.

Summer Sausage and Beer Please!

So, if you are going to serve a summer sausage on an October afternoon, choose a German beer to match. Smoky, spiced varieties tend to pair well with strong stouts and amber lagers. And let’s not forget the Braunschweiger liverwurst. It generally stands up well to a robust brew too. Light sausages, on the other hand, are probably best served with one of Germany’s pale ales.

Round Out Those Snack Platters

We know that quite a few Germans will also be slicing up cheese to go with those summer sausages. After all, many of those early immigrants went on to start their own dairy farms and sell cheeses to their neighbors. Plus, Germans have always loved cheese. Bearing that in mind, our cheese wheels, spreads and blocks would really compliment a Oktoberfest meal. The same is true for our dipping pretzels, pretzel dips, limited edition steins, horseradish products and pickles. They’ll round out snack platters and bar setups perfectly.

Go for a Meaty, Main Meal

If a main meal is on your mind, summer sausage is still sure to please. Combine it with drunken potatoes, German casseroles, meat pies, European beer breads, hot slaws and other cherished dishes. A few that will taste fabulous are sauerkraut, pierogis, fruited cabbage, beer-battered veggies and currywurst sandwiches.
