Beer and Sausage for May Day at Loreley

May Day is celebrated in parts of Germany with Tanz in Den Mai ("Dance into May") festivities. On Saturday April 28, Loreley Restaurant & Biergarten (7 Rivington St., 212-253-7077, www.loreleynyc.com) will kick off beer garden season with its own "Tanz in Den Mai" celebration and sausage fest. Special spring beers and sausage platters will be available from April 28 until May 3 during Loreley’s 9th Annual Sausage Fest.
 
On Saturday at 3pm, a ceremonial keg of Hofbräu Maibock beer will be tapped with each guest receiving a free beer as long as the keg lasts. Maibock, which is a paler, more hoppy version of bock (a strong lager), is typically served at spring festivals in Germany. Loreley will be tapping Spaten Maibock and Hofbräu Maibock throughout the festivities, along with other German beers.
 
Five different sausage platters will be offered, featuring German and international style sausages from Schaller & Weber, all accompanied by Loreley’s hearty serving of housemade sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Platters will come with 3, 5, 7, 9 or 12 types of sausages ($16-$38). In addition, the sausage fest will include for the first time bratwurst tacos, bratwurst kabobs and vegetarian options (including soy sausages). 

While Bratwurst (pork, veal & beef), Knackwurst (pork & veal), Wiener (pork & beef) and Weisswurst (veal and fresh bacon) are well known, you'll also have a chance to try lesser known types such as the mildly spicy Bauernwurst (pork & beef) seasoned with mustard seed, Hungarian Kolbase with paprika, a New Orleans Cajun-spiced Andouille, mildly smoked Chicken Bratwurst, garlicky Polish Kolbase and Nürnberger, a marvelous small, thin pork-based bratwurst from Nuremberg that’s scented with marjoram and packs a lot of flavor—not to be missed!

Happy Weekend!
