We’ve all heard of happy hour, right? Well, what about bread time? At our Haus bread time is always happy…and delicious.
In Germany bread time is called Brotzeit and refers to a light yet savory meal that can be enjoyed all day. The bread in “bread time” is usually the ever-popular Bavarian pretzel, or Breze. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, this twisted piece of perfection is also served with Munich Weisswurst, a white unsmoked sausage that rose to fame more than 150 years ago.
Legend has it that one morning in the carnival season of 1857 the landlord of an inn called The Sanctuary Lamp, located just steps from Hofbrauhaus, Munich, began preparing his famous veal sausages only to discover no mutton skins were left for frying! Desperate to please his packed inn, he filled the meat into pork skins instead and boiled the sausages in hot water, and voila! Weisswurst was born…and the hungry crowd went wild!
Today, the quintessential Bavarian Brotzeit includes Weisswurst, spicy hot radishes and warm, crusty Brezen. Of course, it is washed down with a freshly tapped brew.
At Hofbrauhaus Las Vegas our Munich Weisswurst features two of those famous white sausages (veal and pork), either poached or grilled, and served with a freshly baked Breze and our sweet mustard sauce, imported straight from Munich.
In the spirit of Brotzeit, we also offer Brotzeitteller, a tempting cold-cut platter boasting pork roast, Black Forest smoked ham, sliced cold cuts, cheese, pickled gherkin (cucumber), and rye bread & butter. It is served with onions and mustard—but the brew is up to you! It’s great with all of our original and seasonal flavors. We also
