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.
