Fall Grilling

Fall is one of my favorite times of year… It’s Oktoberfest Season! Grilling Brats in the crisp air, matched with a great seasonal beer. What’s not to love?  Here’s something else to like about autumn, the Usinger Fall Shipping Special. For a limited time, now until October 17, 2020, you can order anywhere from 6 to 20 pounds of your favorite Usinger Sausage and ship it for just $9.99 to most states. Check out our website at usinger.com to get all the details. It really is a great time to try something new, or stock up on classics like Usinger Applewood Bacon. It may be a long winter, better fill the freezer now. Check the website for more details and shipping maps so you can check to see if your state is eligible for the deal.

Prost!

Changing times mean changing measures

The spread of the Covid-19 virus has caused us to make a few changes to the way we do business, as I’m sure it has affected the way your life works as well. Hopefully everyone is staying healthy as we work through this. At Usinger’s we have temporarily closed our retail store on Old World Third Street. This is for the protection of our customers and employees as it can get crowded in there. But have no fear our Sausage Kitchen and Smokehouses are busy producing sausages six days a week to keep up on shipments supplying grocery stores that proudly carry our products. You can also order directly from us online at usinger.com. You will find almost all our items in the Deli or Gift Store sections on our website. We will ship anywhere in the continental U.S. and that seems to be one of the preferred ways to receive food these days. Here’s to hoping summer is just around the corner and praying an end to this epidemic is too. Stay well and enjoy eating at home.

Fred Usinger Day February 23rd in Milwaukee!

The most delicious holiday in February is coming … and no, it’s not Valentine’s Day, I’m talking about Fred Usinger Day. You see, back in 2005 Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett proclaimed February 23rd as Fred Usinger Day by special order.  This proclamation recognized Usinger’s as a local family owned and operated business for four generations spanning over 125 years.  Each year, the city of Milwaukee salutes Fred Usinger, Inc. for their long standing good corporate citizenship and commitment to the betterment of Metropolitan Milwaukee and the Southeast Wisconsin area.  To commemorate this event, our friends at the Old German Beer Hall will be offering a free Usinger brat to patrons beginning at 10am on Sunday February 23rd, until 8pm.  I will also be on hand at OGBH to tap a keg at about 4pm. There will be free beer until the keg runs out.  Take a break from the cold and enjoy a hot juicy Usinger brat, maybe a pretzel or your favorite libation as we celebrate Milwaukee’s sausage heritage. We’re now entering year 140 and five generations on Old World Third Street. Still living the dream and making America’s Finest Sausage.

The taste of Fall is in the air…at least it is around the Usinger house because we’ve got a grill of brats going. Hey, it’s football season and nothing goes with a game like Usinger brats hot off the grill. It’s a good time to try some Oktoberfest brats too, get’em while you can. This is also the time to stock up because our Fall Shipping Special featuring $9.99 flat rate shipping to most of the U.S. starts September 6th until October 7th. Check our website for more details. You can order anything from the Usinger Deli that’s 6 pounds or more and ship for $9.99 to most of the U.S. Shipping maps are available at usinger.com so you can check your area before you order.

It’s Almost Time for the Fair!

Fritz’s Blog – July 9, 2019

 

The Wisconsin State Fair will be starting in a couple of weeks at State Fair Park in Milwaukee. It’s always one of the highlights of summer for Wisconsinites including myself. There’s something for everyone to see and do, from farm animals to new products, and carnival rides to great food! Speaking of food, you’ll find many of the best eats in the air conditioned Wisconsin Products Pavilion. We’ve been a part of the Wisconsin Products Pavilion for many years and I can honestly say I don’t think you’ll find a better place to eat at the Fair than here. Whether you like brats or baked potatoes they’ve got it all…and why not have both! The menu at Usinger’s booth this year includes bratwurst w/kraut, smoked brat w/kraut, Italian sausage w/pepper & onions, Beef Frank, and our classic Reuben sandwich. Of course all of our sausages are served on tasty Miller Bakery Pretzel buns.

Plan your trip now and we’ll see you at the Fair!

Is it August Already?

Yep, the State Fair is underway at State Fair Park in West Allis. I love the Fair, an adventure at every turn and a huge selection of foods to try.

I invite you to stop by the Usinger Booth in the air conditioned Wisconsin Products Pavilion. We are serving up our ¼ pound Brats, Beef Franks, Italian Sausage or Smoked Brat with Cheddar & Jalapeno.

In addition to our sausage we’re featuring three great Reuben sandwiches. You will find the classic Corned Beef Reuben as well as our Turkey Reuben or try a Smoked Ham Reuben. Of course we use our house made Usinger Sauerkraut to build these beauties.

So find comfort and the best food at the best price inside the Wisconsin Products Pavilion.

See you at The Fair!
