Twin Cities Daily Planet Winter Party and Sausage Fest

Kramarczuk's knows sausage!

Please join us for great beer, great music, great sausages and a fun time at our Daily Planet Winter Party and Sausage Fest on Thursday, February 2 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Summit Brewing Company in St. Paul. Artisan sausage is a hot new food trend, and we’ll have eight top sausage makers sharing the best of their wurst.

The beer: Summit is generously donating their beer and use of their Ratskeller. They’ll have seven different brews on tap – Extra Pale Ale, Horizon Red Ale, Maibock, Pilsner, IPA, Great Northern Porter and Oatmeal Stout, plus 1919 Root Beer

The music: The legendary Brass Messengers will perform, with a repertoire that ranges from “music of the Carribean and Balkans to high speed polka to heavy metal for the Black Sabbath crowd, and our own originals. Our music of choice is anything that fits in the twisted brass tubing, from originals to “covers” from around the globe, as long as it makes a joyful noise.”

The meat: Eight of the Twin Cities’ top sausage makers are contributing their wares – including The Black Forest, The Butcher and the Boar (opening in February at 1121 Hennepin Ave.), Clancey’s Meats, the Green Ox Provisions, Kramarczuk’s, the Modern Cafe, NateDogs and the Sample Room, and we’ll round out the feast with sauerkraut, German potato salad or other side dishes. Veggie brats and tofu pups will also be available, plus Dan Brady’s legendary chocolate chip cookies, made with the eggs of free-range chickens from northeast Minneapolis. (Really). You won’t go away hungry.

The Summit Brewing Company is located at 910 Montreal Circle, St. Paul MN.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door – if any tickets remain.
