Wisconsin is known for its cheese—as we detailed here yesterday. But it’s also recognized as the brat capital of the United States, as any fan of the Green Bay Packers or Milwaukee Brewers would tell you.
And nowhere in that state is the brat more joyously celebrated than in Sheboygan, where the spicy, mouth-watering sausage was introduced by German immigrants.
At Sheboygan’s annual Brat Fest, scheduled for August 4-6, the adult beverage of choice will be beer.
But it’s possible to enjoy brats with wine as well. Excellent matches include Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and rose-style wines.
