Authentic German Pretzels

German Pretzel

Authentic Bavarian soft pretzels are handmade and freshly baked, just the way they’ve been doing it in Germany for hundreds of years. One taste and you’ll want to trade in your pretzel for a “bretzel” from the Milwaukee Pretzel Company.

Who's Thirsty?


Since 1981, we’ve been firm believers that mankind does not live by Usinger’s Brats alone. Mankind needs a beverage or two to compliment a brat, a rollbraten & even bienenstich – that’s why we have gathered a collection of beverages to choose from, including our special German Fest Bier. All designed to quench any thirst & satisfy any taste buds. We also are firm believers in drinking responsibly. Enjoy, but please be responsible.

We will again be selling a limited supply of 1/2 liter steins once again in addition to our very popular 1 liter steins.
