Bavarian Pretzel Buns - 12 Pack

Eat as appetizer breadsticks or use as buns!

Soft Pretzel Sausage Buns are great for an appetizer and, of course, Our famous bratwursts. Try them toasted! Best served warm and chewy with kosher salt.

Founded in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1989, State Street Brats is famous for its legendary Red Brats, a mixture of pork and beef. The recipe for these red-hued sausages originated in the 1950’s, when a local Madison butcher began making them for a restaurant called the Brathaus. State Street Brat’s current owners worked at the Brathaus while going to college in the 1970’s and later purchased the recipe, which remains unchanged. The Red Brats are made from a mixture of pork and beef (the beef gives them their signature red color), and the White Brats (which are pork-only) have been provided by the legendary Bakalars Sausage Company in LaCrosse Wisconsin, since 1989. State Street Brats are smoked, split, and grilled to perfection, offering a delicious bite of the Badger state.

Everything arrived on time and cold! The brats were excellent and the re-heating instructions were very helpful. Good to have the taste of Madison at home!
