As the saying goes: “Essen und Trinken hält Leib und Seele zusammen!” Or for those who are still developing their Deutsch: “Eating and drinking keeps body and soul together!”


Get your Teutonic taste buds ready to savor both traditional German and a variety of additional food offerings at West Bend Germanfest!  Fine bratwurst and sauerkraut will just be the start, with additional ethnic fare such as mouth-watering spaetzle, German potato dumplings, and — of course — the legendary desserts that have come to be synonymous with the Germanfest experience! How about Black Forest cake, cream puffs, strawberry shortcake and schaum torte melting in your mouth? And naturally, if 518683-black-forest-cakeyou would like to have that uniquely-Wisconsin experience, you must take in our renowned Friday fish fry, and even hear that great squeaking sound as you bite into some delicious cheese curds. Burgers and the like? Ya, we’ll certainly have all of that for you too. Germanfest happens only once a year, so don’t be a afraid to have some flavorful fun!

As always, we will also again be “rolling out the barrel” at West Bend Germanfest! You can look forward to great choices of brews from both near and far.  From more rarefied ales to a cool drink of better-known brands, we have it covered.

If wine is more to your liking, we will have “wein” with a nod towards German style-wines for you to sip and savor!

And for those of any age, who doesn’t like a good, old-fashioned root beer float? Everyone is young at heart when it comes to slurping up that overflowing foam, and then digging in to get some of that ice cream hidden at the bottom!  Be assured that these and many other fine fluids will be flowing at West Bend GERMANfest.
