Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele adds a proclamation making February 23rd, 2014 Fred Usinger Day throughout Milwaukee County.
We all know about Valentines Day and Presidents Day, but there’s another Day in February that you can really sink your teeth into… Fred Usinger Day.
In a special presentation in 2005, Mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed February 23rd as Fred Usinger Day throughout the City of Milwaukee.
This special proclamation recognized Usinger’s as a locally family owned and operated business for four generations spanning over 125 years. “The City of Milwaukee salutes Fred Usinger, Inc. for it’s long standing good corporate citizenship and commitment to the betterment of Metropolitan Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin area”.
To commemorate this event, our friends and the Old German Beer Hall will be offering a free Usinger brat to patrons beginning at 11am until 8pm. I will also be on hand at OGBH to tap a keg at 2pm and there will be free beer until the keg runs out.
Take a break from our cold and snowy winter for a hot juicy Usinger brat and your favorite libation as we celebrate sausage.
It’s my favorite thing about February, hope you can join us for the party!
