This weekend marks one of Wisconsin’s favorite holidays, Brat-Fest. Which means more brats are consumed in the next three days then most of the country can even imagine. But when in Wisconsin, complete with Capital Brewery beer, you know anything is possible.
The wonderful thing about this event – besides eating multiple brats, hot dogs and even veggie dogs is that the money made goes to support local charities. Something I’ll even eat a brat to, if for some reason I started needing excuses.
Growing up in Wisconsin, I certainly had my fair share of brats, mainly during the summer months, when grilling is a must, and brats are plentiful. I picked up these brats at the local Meat Market in my home town, because, let’s face it, brats are just better when they come from Wisconsin.
Enjoy your long weekend and if you are in Wisconsin, be sure to celebrate with a brat!
