Food and Beverage Variety
True to its name, our German Grill offers a wide selection of grilled German sausages with different sides. In particular, 3 different kind of sausages (Brat-, Knack-, and Weisswurst) come with a side of home-cooked Sauerkraut and on a roll, slices of Leberkäse (German meatloaf) come either the German way with hot German mustard on a roll or as a Burger. We also make our own curried ketchup which makes, together with a Bratwurst, our famous Berlin style Currywurst. Grab a warm Pretzel on the side and you're good to go! Drinks include a variety of soda pops and water and - of course - German Hofbrau Beer.
We're exclusively serving Hofbrau Beers from Munich/Bavaria. Being available on tap and by the bottle, the variety includes the Hofbrau Original, Hofbrau Dunkel (dark beer), Hofbrau Oktoberfest, and Hofbrau Weizenbier (wheat beer). Bottled beer is available at all stations serving German ready to eat food, tapped beer can be purchased at the Hofbrau Beer stand right next to the German Grill.
Glühwein (Mulled Wine) and Hot Beverages
Glühwein, hot mulled wine, is the MUST DO drink for all visitors of age. No German considers a visit at the local Christmas Market to be finished without having a sip! Choose between a traditional heavy, read wine which is mulled with cinnamon and cloves or a much sweeter white wine with Honey! In case you like it fruity: our Glühwein also comes in a Cherry or Blueberry Flavor. All Glühnwein is imported directly from Nuremberg/ Germany and is a product of Germany. Prost!
Christmas Village also features a large variety of non alcoholic beverages such as hot cider, hot chocolate, tea and - new in 2016 - even a craft coffee maker from Washington, D.C.!
Our Hot Beverage booths sell all kinds of Lebkuchen - Gingerbread - made in Germany. Come by and shop the otherwise hard to get goodies such as Stollen, Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars), Dominos, and Gingerbreads in all shapes, makes and flavors!
Some might say it's the most important and delicious dish we Germans serve: Schnitzel! At Christmas Village, we serve pork or chicken Schnitzel either on the roll, as a Schnitzelburger, with Potato Salad or with Latke on the side! Drink options include regular soda pops and bottled water.
Vegetarian option: our menu features Latke's, too! Never heard of this? They are also know as German Potato Pancakes and are best compared to a giant hashbrown. They come with sour creme and apple sauce and combine just the right amount of crispness on the outside with a smooth center. Yum!
Baked Cheese on a Stick
Never heard of it? Well, it's delicious! We baked/grill Wisconsin made "Bread Cheese" - a specific hard cheese which roots in the Scandinavian area - to perfection. Served on a stick, it makes a perfect snack! It comes in different flavors such as Original, Jalapeño, Cranberry, Pizza, and Garlic.
