August 16: National Bratwurst Day

If every dog has its day, then it should come as no surprise that there’s a day dedicated to the celebration of the bratwurst: Sunday, August 16th is National Bratwurst Day.

Bratwursts are made a lot like hot dogs are: a meat mixture is stuffed into casings and then pre-cooked to prevent spoilage. Typically made of pork, beef, and a small amount of veal, this mildly-spiced sausage hails from Germany like so many other sausages. So, why not celebrate the bratwurst with a German meal? Grab a beer, throw some mustard on your brat, and serve up some sauerkraut and pretzels… or just head to a German restaurant.
