This new hotspot for sausage and beer fills up quickly after the big garage doors open at 5 p.m. The sausages are decidedly gourmet and there are plenty of options from which to choose. But, keeping with the German theme, go with a brat and a side order of the absolutely addictive garlic fries.

Served in an elongated glass, the Dunkel is a German wheat beer that is anything but pale. It’s dark and rich and luxurious, and was originally brewed by Erdinger in 1989 as a gift for the brewery’s owner. But it was such a hit, Erdinger decided to market it.

What better way to enjoy Game 7 on your big screen, than with a nice selection of German cold cuts and sausage to go with that beer? K & K is a Whyte Avenue institution; go to the deli and get yourself some weisswurst, those stubby white sausages that are made from veal and bacon.
