EuroChomp SausageFest 2009: Wollwürste

woll2

Munich’s first wheat beer was brewed at the appropriately named Weisses Bräuhaus. A frequent meeting spot for politicians, including the National Socialists in the run up to WWII, it was heavily damaged by allied bombing But now restored, it still serves up plenty of pilsner and home-brewed weissbrau (both pictured), along with hefty amounts of meat. After a long day inspecting mining equipment and zeppelins at the Deutschmuseum, we stopped in for one of Munich’s many specialties, the wollwürste.

Bud Light and Blue Moon, you are not worthy.

Not sure exactly how wollwürste translates; most of the information on the web seems to be in german. I found one decent page of information here. From what I can gather, it’s typical Munichen Weisswurst that’s cooked in a particular way (dipped in milk, fried briefly) to give it a very fresh flavor. In the case of the ones we basically absorbed along with our beers, the taste was noticeably fruity, and the texture was incredibly moist. In short, a perfect, light sausage for eating lunch outdoors. I guess there’s a reason everyone else around us was eating them too. As usual the potato salad and spicy mustard complimented them well, as did the sea of meat juice encompassing it all.
