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.
Summer is now finally (almost) upon us, and that means one thing: grilling season. Luckily, Schaller & Weber sausages are now available for purchase online, including our newest Veal Bratwurst and Chorizo, not to mention the always-favorite Cheddar Bratwurst, original Bratwurst, and Frankfurters.
In New York, we are eagerly awaiting the opening of Reichenbach Hall, gearing up to be Manhattan’s largest indoor beer hall and restaurant on W. 37th St. Twin Reichenbachs Keith and Willy are the bros. behind Hop Devil Grill in the East Village, so we know they know how to facilitate a good time.
If you haven’t heard, biergarten and restaurant Loreley has done so well on Manhattan’s Lower East Side that it will soon be expanding to the West Coast, starting with a new location in Los Angeles. They’ll be bringing with them their loved beer list and the strong tradition of Schaller & Weber, so be sure to visit if you’re in town.
This recipe adapted from SAVEUR is refrigerator-door-worthy and easy to make using Schaller & Weber favorites. A choucroute garnie like this one is perfect for these last cold winter days, and it reminds us of founder Ferdinand’s training in the Alsace region of France.
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?
I can remember the first time I tried these, rather untraditionally, for breakfast one day. Having tasted our Bratwurst and most of the other Schaller & Weber sausages already, I figured I wasn’t in for much of a surprise. Plus, these were weeny little wieners.
The Globe European Delicatessen is a small, family-owned market and meat counter in Costa Mesa, CA. A 40-year-plus operation, the place packs more punch than most outposts of its size, offering fresh bratwursts, rouladen, and sauerkraut; some of the best German mustards, condiments, and sweets; and an impressive selection of imported bottled beer.
A quote from Das Bierhaus’ dinner menu: “We dedicate 100% of our draft lines to German biers.” Alright, looks like my work here is done…see ya in Burlington.
Raleigh, NC, is home to a rich food culture, and Capital Club 16 on Martin St. is one exemplary standby for brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Here’s a great little spot that’s off the beaten path. About 15 miles south of Boston, and 25 or so from Providence, RI, Walpole, MA is home to Euro Guild, an official Schaller & Weber store that supplies German and Central European products to New England’s finest specialty markets.
Not that we advocate sitting in front of a screen all day, but hey, some of us are forced to. And who’s going to blame you for staying in as the days get shorter and colder? My point being, did you know that one of the most well-stocked German markets worldwide is only a few strikes of the old keyboard away–meaning you can visit from the comfort of your home or office, 24/7?
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.
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.
Opened in 2009 and named by Gourmet as one of 100 “restaurants worth the money” worldwide, and “a very good restaurant” by the New York Times, DBGB is still going strong in the Bowery.
Our founder, Ferdinand Schaller, received a portion of his training in Alsace, that smallest region of France bordering both Germany and Switzerland, and so our meats tend to cross over well into the French cuisine.
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?
Here at Schaller & Weber, we realize we may come off as a bit New York-centric, but it turns out our products are doing great things in other cities as well.
Nothing says end of summer like bratwurst, but if you’re a New Yorker, chances are you’re not grilling during your lunch break.
There’s a long weekend coming up, and some of you might be heading up to Montauk. If so, we strongly advise you to stop by Zum Schneider, one of our favorite outposts in the area.
We welcome to Park Slope the quintessential German beer hall, and one of majestic proportions and intent at that. Recently opened on St. Marks Place between 4th and 5th Avenues, Die Koelner Bierhalle serves up some 70-odd beers with at least 30 on tap, including one of our favorites, Kölsch, straight from Cologne.
