It is once again our favorite time of year, Oktoberfest is upon us! Schaller & Weber would like to cordially invite you to our Oktoberfest celebration on Oct. 4th in Astoria, NY. But don’t worry if you can’t make it,just grab yourself an Oktoberfest Pack and read Maxim’s guide to Oktoberfest.
The summer is in full swing, and what better way to spend a Wednesday evening than with a cold drink and a tasty sausage? So we fired up the grill and took to the rooftops. With the sun setting over the New Jersey skyline, partygoers enjoyed Bratwurst, Chicken Brats, Cheddar Brats and our mouthwatering Spicy Cheddar Brats (On sale now! *nudge nudge*). Truly the perfect ending to a beautiful NYC summer day.
Dads are notoriously tough to shop for, but the day I started sending mine packs of Schaller & Weber meats, I never experienced pre-Father’s Day anxiety again. The Bacon. Is the greatest gift that any father could ever ask for or hope to receive. Except, I guess, fatherhood.

The Knicks are still going strong in the playoffs, and Andrew Carmellini’s beer-braised Schaller & Weber Cheddar Brats are a great way to celebrate between dunks at Madison Square Garden.

You know it’s mid-March when Spring starts stirring under her snowy blanket and Green Cabbage goes on sale at Fairway. This Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, the annual beer-feast that’s liable to get sloppy without the proper nourishment to accompany it. So what’s it going to be?
DeBragga and Spitler is to Schaller & Weber as their Dry Aged Filet Mignon is to our Double Smoked Bacon. You might see them in the same meal, certainly, or in the hands of the same chef, but not, except on rare (exalted!) occasions, on the same plate. As it turns out, the two companies’ palates and histories share a lot, but of course they have their divergences as well.
We hope you will pardon our lapse in posting recently. We’ve just returned from a vacation–I mean, business trip–to the Cayman Islands, where The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, hosted its fifth annual Cayman Cookout this past weekend.
Have you ever been to a Christmas or New Year’s party where there was a charcuterie board? And then, as you cozied up to the various meats and cheeses, to the inevitable water crackers and precious slices of ever-so-slightly toasted baguette, weren’t you impressed by how cool and fashion-forward your hosts seemed?
Between the clientele (not to name-drop or anything, but, Lou Reed! Lou Reed!), eclectic vintage wall hangings preserved from the space’s previous occupant, Le Zinc, and the beautifully executed German-Austrian menu, chef Kurt Gutenbrunner’s restaurant Blaue Gans in TriBeCa remains a staple for consistently enjoyable, unpretentious, and authentic cuisine.
Shacktoberfest is that special time of year when friends and family come together under the bright city lights for an unforgettable meal, ein prosit or two, and, to top it off, incredible custards blended with traditional German flavors (last year’s German Chocolate Concrete: are you kidding me??).
A tasty array of concessions has blossomed at Madison Square Garden over the past year; notably, Andrew Carmellini’s Sausage Boss now serves up Schaller & Weber Cheddar Brats in multiple stands throughout the arena.
Order yourself a 100% all-beef hot dog at Asiadog and you’ve got yourself a fine piece of Schaller & Weber meat, with a patiently-waiting plethora of Asian-inspired toppings to choose from.
Oktoberfest is underway at historic Bear Mountain. Open and free to the public on weekends through October 27, including Columbus Day, Bear Mountain makes the perfect jaunt from the city.
Didn’t make it to Munich this year? Celebrating Oktoberfest at home with family and friends just became easier, thanks to the Meat Pack, available at A8 New York for shipment in the U.S.
From the Bay Area–While we’re plugging away at the various institutions, restaurants, and marketplaces that carry our products nationwide, might we not fail to mention one little charcuterie cart of whom we are, naturally, the proudest?
Having missed it last year for the first time in history, we are doubly ready for the 55th annual German-American Steuben Parade, which will take place this Saturday, September 15 at 11:30 a.m. between E. 67th St. and E. 86th St. along 5th Avenue.
Tomorrow, tune in to Heritage Radio Network at 12pm to hear our long-time supporter and friend, not to mention the very talented Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner, share his “Chef’s Story.”
