The Mother of all Brats
Authentic taste is totally down-to-earth in the town of Ansbach. The Ansbach bratwurst is best enjoyed the traditional way with sauerkraut, black bread, and potatoes or traditional, Franconian potato salad.
The Ansbach bratwurst is a whopping 18 cm long and 3 cm thick! This well-rounded mother of all bratwursts stays juicy on the inside due to its thickness. The meat is all pork seasoned with nothing but salt, pepper, oregano and pimiento. The sausage comes stuffed in a special skin called “Schweinebändel.” Take a bratwurst tour in Ansbach to learn everything you ever wanted to know about this beast of a brat and don’t be surprised to learn that there are purity regulations for the Ansbach bratwursts and that these laws are older than the German beer purity regulations...
Beer Bliss in the Countryside
