Autumn means Oktoberfest for many people around the world! Oktoberfest has its roots in a wedding celebration for the crown prince Ludwig of Bavaria in 1810, and has grown to be an event welcoming hundreds of thousands to celebrate with a carnival, games, food, and beer tents.
Here at Karl’s Sausage Kitchen we’re celebrating not only Oktoberfest, but our 55th anniversary! We’re celebrating in style, with new specials in the café, imported German beer on tap and many Oktoberfest party supplies along with traditional German foods available in our market!
Saturday, October 5th will be our “Wear your Dirndl or Lederhosen to Karl’s day!” Wear your traditional European clothing (not limited to Bavaria!) to Karl’s and be entered in a drawing for a limited edition Oktoberfest beer stein. We will also be joined by Radio BDC, Boston’s online music source, playing some great Oktoberfest music. In the café we’re offering many different traditional German dishes for customers to enjoy, along with Imported Oktoberfest beers, including Paulaner, Ayinger, and Weihenstephaner.
We’re happy to announce plans for another beer tasting event, on October25th, this time focusing on different Oktoberfest beers and traditional foods! Join us for another night of fun, food, and of course, beer.
Karl’s Sausage Kitchen & European Market is well known throughout New England for its authentic, old-world European sausages, cold cuts and smoked meats, made on the premises with the finest meats and spices. We also stock imported products such as jams, chocolates, cheeses, pickles, cookies and bread in our grocery. The move to the larger Peabody facility has enabled owners Anita and Robert Gokey to add a European Café, where customers can now enjoy sandwiches, grilled sausages, traditional German fare and imported beer and wine before stocking up on meats and imported goods to take home.
