Schinkennudeln: Pasta Gratin with Ham, Onions and Cheese – $4.50

Schinkennudeln: Pasta Gratin with Ham, Onions and Cheese – $4.50

Literally one of the heaviest dishes at the festival (making it one of the best values considering taste and size for price), this baked mac and cheese is creamy and all the right kinds of delicious. The price has been raised in recent years, but don’t let that deter you from the cheesy goodness.

Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll – $5.75

Roast Bratwurst in a Pretzel Roll – $5.75

It’s a safe bet, it’s good for everyone. The actual brat is nothing crazy, but it’s well done. It’s a standard pretzel bun with a standard mustard dipping sauce.

Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce – $4.25

Apple Strudel with Vanilla Sauce – $4.25

While not particularly exciting, this dessert has become a staple at the Food & Wine Festival. The crispy and flaky exterior holds in large chunks of well-cooked apple and cinnamon with a plentiful side of vanilla sauce. Recommended, especially at the price.

*NEW* Gaffel Kölsch, Cologne (4.8% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

Drizly‘s review of this beer reads: “Gaffel Kölsch has a slight hoppy bitterness, which distinguishes this beer from all other Kölsch varieties. Gaffel still produces it based on a traditional family recipe, and the company continues to follow the German Purity Law of 1516, using only simple ingredients like hops, malt and hops extract. The distinctive flavor derives from a particular type of ale yeast, which ages in cold cellars. This Gaffel beer has pleasant fruit notes, a crisp finish and a pale color.”

Weihenstephaner Lager, Freising (5.1% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

Weihenstephaner Lager, Freising (5.1% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

From Weihenstephan: “Delicate aromatic notes are not only perceptible in the aroma but also in the flavor. Mild and drinkable with a light, fine, rounded hop flavor on the palate, this Premium is a golden straw color and represents the best of Old Bavaria’s native beverage of choice.”

A light, easy-drinking German lager. It’s a good everyday drinking beer, it’s about as standard of a lager that you’ll find.

*NEW* Schöfferhofer Wild Cherry Hefeweizen, Frankfurt (2.5% ABV) – $5.00 for 6 o.z., $9.00 for 12 o.z.

From correspondence with Schöfferhofer: “Schöfferhofer Wild Cherry is a delicious blend of 50% authentic German unfiltered Hefeweizen and 50% wild cherry juice. The combination of smooth Hefeweizen beer and wild cherry results in a crisp and refreshing beverage that is perfectly balanced.” In continuing the brewery’s tradition of premiering new beers at the festival, the Germany Marketplace will be the only location in the world to offer this beer on draft.

Selbach-Oster Riesling, Mosel ($30/bottle) – $6.00

From Selbach-Oster: “Peach, apricot, apple, as well as citrus fruit and herbs are typical features of the aroma of our young and dry wines. Our delicately and subtley sweet wines show nuances of quince and tropical fruit, and the ripest of them will display honeyed and raisined flavors, often backed by a touch of salty minerality, and always balanced by crunchy acidity.”
