Bratwurst

at Otto Food and Drink 

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.

Erdinger Dunkel

at Red Star

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.

Weisswurst

at K&K Foodliner

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.

Dinner

at the German Canadian Cultural Association 

The headquarters of the cultural association is also home to a German restaurant, open after 5 p.m. Tuesday to Friday and Saturday from noon on. Try some German meat loaf with some cheese spaetzle.

Schnitzel

at Haus Falkenstein

The owners moved their record-setting schnitzel house from Lougheed, Alta. to Edmonton; it boasts a world-record number of schnitzel varieties on the menu. Want an egg on your schnitzel? Perhaps mushrooms, bacon, or both? They can do that.
