The Best of the Wurst is a parking-lot party featuring sausage and bratwurst specially crafted for the annual event. The all-you-can-eat sampling festival will include cased creations from Borough, Red Stag, Ingebretsen’s, Fig + Farro, Lowry Hill Meats, and New Bohemia, among others. FairVote Minnesota will oversee ranked choice voting in order to pick the supreme sausage. Nothing pairs better with sausage than beer and cider; August Schell Brewing Company will be serving their Oktoberfest, 1905 VT, and Witbier. Sociable will be serving up cider, of course. The music of Johnny Cash, performed by local cover artists Church of Cash, will help revelers dance off some of those meat sweats in between courses.
