Midwest Living Review
Bratwurst is a German sausage, so it's only natural that you can buy it in historic Hermann. But award-winning wurstmeister Mike Sloan also gives his brats a modern spin. He has the tradional flavors and some inspired by other taste combos: Reuben (his all-time favorite ingredients), apple and maple, carmalized pear and gorgonzola, jalapeño and peach ("a little bit of heat, a little bit of peach"). You'll find 45 flavors in all—tastes will help you choose—fresh or frozen. (If you are spending the day in Hermann, they will hold your order until it's time to leave.) Or grab a plate and dig into two links and two sides in the open eating area or on the front porch. He also sells local wine and beer, Amish-made products including fun jellies like FROG (fig, raspberry, orange peel and ginger), butters and more. You also can buy these online and pay for overnight shipping, if you're eager for a taste but can't get to Hermann soon.
