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!

Everyone appreciates a gift assortment from Usinger’s !

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!

The Second Half of Summer!

As we enter the second half of this summer. It’s time to review your grilling successes. Hopefully you have attained “black belt status” for grilling brats and wieners using my two beer philosophy. Now it’s time to expand the menu. Have you tried Usinger Smoked Pork Chops on the grill? They are already smoked and fully cooked, just sear the outside a little (so you get the nice grill marks) and they are ready to go. Or try some of my other spicy international favorite links: Usinger Andouille, Smoked Chorizo or Portuguese style Linguica. All are smoked and cooked, so they require minimal grill time to heat them through, quick & easy. If you like some cheddar in your wurst, try our Smoked Brat with Cheddar & Jalapeno (it’s really good!).

Happy Tailgating

 

As summer fades into fall and cool crisp mornings turn into beautiful afternoons it can only mean one thing – football season and plenty of great weather for grilling Usinger Brats.

Nothing beats standing by the grill on a crisp afternoon, enjoying the aroma and sizzle of Usinger Brats. Remember my advice and cook the brats low and slow to avoid split casings so the flavorful juices stay in the brats.

For our loyal Usinger fans we’re kicking off our “Tailgate Party Contest”. Just send us a picture of your tailgate party with Usinger Sausage and you could win a Tailgate Party Pack featuring Usinger Brats, Usinger Festival Sauerkraut and Pretzilla soft pretzel buns.
