The Linkery 6th Anniversary Festival of Sausages and Beer

The dishwasher turns one year old, previous location, 2006

This weekend marks our birthday — our Grand Opening was six years ago Friday. And we want to celebrate with you, over that which first brought us all together: sausages. And Beer. With the Linkery Anniversary Festival of Sausages and Beer. LAFOSAB, for short. Running from Friday to Sunday.

Max, today, making sausage for the weekend

We’ll be making a plethora of different sausages, including featured links from The Best Wurst Countdown and from the World Cup of Sausages. We expect to have a selection of three different links all weekend.

Inspiration for the Linkery, Vienna, 2002

We’ll offer the links selection as:

* Picnic Plate
* Choucroute
* Sausage Starter / Charcuterie Selection
* Sausage Tacos
* Sausage Sandwich

As for beer, here’s the lineup:

Everything starts on Friday, and we should be able to hold out through Sunday nite with most of the selection intact (except perhaps some of the rarer beers).
