The Sausage Man loves Oktoberfest. We love Oktoberfest food, we love the beer, we love the good times. But this year we know Oktoberfest is going to look very different. Getting through the current crisis means making compromises, in the hope we will once again be able to celebrate Oktoberfest on a grander scale in future, so we may need to keep things smaller in 2020.
Rule of six
With social distancing guidelines in place to slow the spread of COVID 19, and the “rule of six” applying across the UK, many of the planned Oktoberfest events are now in question. But at The Sausage Man, we want to help make sure your lederhosen don’t just gather dust in 2020. As long as it remains safe to do so, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the atmosphere of Oktoberfest in your own home, abiding by all the relevant guidance of the day (of course).
Anyone who has been to a big Oktoberfest event before will be familiar with the packed tables and boisterous toasting, but the only way to do it safely now is to maintain social distancing as you prost! If you are mixing with up to five members of other households, you should still strive to keep a safe distance between each guest where possible, and note any local/national rule changes that might impact your plans. Keeping a safe distance shouldn’t impact your fun, and you’ll still be able to enjoy awesome Oktoberfest food and drink.
Authentic Oktoberfest Fare
Oktoberfest for us is very much about sharing authentic German fare with our friends and family. From big Bratwurst, mini Nürnberger and Game Sausage, to the traditional Weiswurst – The Sausage Man can help. We also supply traditional dishes of Pork Knuckle and Pork Neck Steaks, to Schnitzel and Leberkäs – ensuring you have all the Oktoberfest food you need to make a true celebration at home.
Traditional Oktoberfest Decorations
At The Sausage Man you can also find a range of different Oktoberfest decorations. With garlands and flag chains, napkins and table cloths, paper plates and balloons – all in the traditional Bavarian colours. If you want to go all the way in your Oktoberfest food and decorations, The Sausage Man can definitely deliver.
Please Prost Responsibly
Alcohol can lead to lapses in judgement that might not mix well with social distancing measures. This makes it important to exercise some restraint when enjoying beer in mixed company during the ongoing pandemic. This isn’t the first time that a highly communicable health issue has halted Oktoberfest, with at least three separate outbreaks putting paid to celebrations in the Nineteenth Century. So please, whenever you top up your Stein, try to maintain your social distance with people from outside of your household.
We know that guidance on social gatherings may have changed by the time you come to read this, and that in some parts of the UK social gatherings with people outside of your immediate household have already been restricted. If you’re planning on hosting an online Oktoberfest with your friends, then why not add a themed backdrop to your digital meeting room? A shot like the one below can simulate a Himmel von Bayern (Heaven of Bavaria) beer tent from your sofa, while we all wait to see the real thing once more.
Presenting new products
And these are our new products we are launching for the Oktoberfest
Roasted Pork Knuckle might be known to some in the UK as “Ham Hock”, but the German version is not brined and is usually served roasted on the bone. It’s slightly smoky flavour is a must try, for a truly authentic Oktoberfest experience.
Authentic Oktoberfest Fare
If you have been to an Oktoberfest event in the UK, then the chances are good that you’ve already tried this dish. We have been supplying German Pork Knuckle to event organisers in the UK for over 15 years, directly from one of our German Master Butchers, so you can be certain that this Schweinshaxe will be exactly as you’ve had it before.
These German Pork Neck End Steaks are tender cuts, cooked slowly to make them extremely tender and juicy and they are fully seasoned. They pair perfectly with a helping of Sauerkraut and an Essiggurken (Gherkin). They also go down well with a stein of Helles beer, for that real Oktoberfest feel.
These flavourful German Game Sausages are an Oktoberfest staple. The rich meaty taste comes from the combination of venison, wild boar and pork meat, making for a bratwurst that’s hard to beat.
These authentic German Game Bratwurst are handmade by master butchers in Germany. The venison and wild boar comes from the hunting ranges of German royalty, sourced locally by an award winning German Master Butcher, and is certified in accordance with the high standards of German game meat.
The perfect dessert. Goes well with vanilla icecream or vanilla custard.
