Just because Oktoberfest in Munich is canceled this year doesn’t mean you can’t still don your dirndl and lederhosen. Dog Haus has it covered, so you can still prost with a beer in one hand and a sausage in the other.

Starting Sept. 19, guests can say “danke schön” to Dog Haus for bringing back its famed Oktoberwürst – a one-third pound Cajun spiced Emmental cheese stuffed bierwurst, topped with caramelized onions, sauerkraut, mustard aioli and scallions, all served on grilled King’s Hawaiian rolls. Created by Dog Haus Würstmacher and TV personality Adam Gertler, this sausage beast will be available at Dog Haus locations nationwide through Oct. 31.

As part of its Chef Collaboration Series, Dog Haus will donate $1 of the purchase price from every Oktoberwürst sold to the restaurant’s national charity partner No Kid Hungry, whose mission is to end childhood hunger in America.

For guests looking to celebrate at home, participating Dog Haus locations are offering a DIY Oktoberwürst Pod Party Kit and Oktoberwürst Pod Party Pack, Sept. 19-Oct. 31! The DIY kit allows guests to grill their own sausages at home with everything they need to craft six Oktoberwürsts for just $46, including hand-crafted sausages, King’s Hawaiian rolls, sauerkraut, caramelized onions, mustard aioli and scallions. Or, if guests prefer to pick up a ready-to-eat pack of this limited-time item, guests can order a Pod Party Pack of six or more to score 10% off. $6 from every DIY kit and pack sold will be donated to No Kid Hungry.

“If there were a year when our guests needed a reason to celebrate, 2020 is it,” says Dog Haus Co-Founder & Partner Hagop Giragossian. “That’s why we are bringing back the fan-favorite Oktoberwürst, and encouraging guests to celebrate Oktoberfest with us, or wherever they feel most comfortable with our new takeout options. This one-of-a-kind sausage will transport our guests to Munich with every bite. We are excited for guests nationwide to enjoy this innovative spin on a German classic and thrilled to continue our support of No Kid Hungry.”
