Our ever popular Liquor Tastings will be made available throughout the event in the Wheelwright’s Shop by reservation.
If you are hungry, we have you covered. We will be offering our own famous hand-made soft pretzels lovingly hand rolled and baked by our volunteers using a traditional recipe. We will also have available 2 custom made sausages from our local butcher using traditional recipes: A fresh all pork Weisswurst, and a smoked all pork Nurnberger-style Bratwurste.
