Congratulations, Germany for a much deserved World Cup win! We still want Tim Howard for President of Everything (or to win Golden Glove!), but we’re stoked for Germany’s winning streak this time around.

Before we say até mais to Brazil for an absolutely brilliant month of soccer, we celebrate all things German! Find out where to congratulate German fans with pints of awesome German beer, to the best apple strudel in town. For those of you who wanna celebrate at home, we’ve got an easy dinner recipe for you too! Read on, after the cut!

The Reichenbach Hall,  37th St 

What better way than to celebrate Germany’s victory than at an authentic beer hall? The Reichenbach Hall is Manhattan’s largest beer hall, and it’s the right type of festive! We love cute outfits the servers wear, and everyone’s generally really friendly.

Don’t forget to satiate your appetite with a wurst (sausage)! You can go with the traditional bratwurst (fried pork sausage), or try a German favorite, currywurst. We’re all for a sausage with yummy curried ketchup! You will also need a generous serving of Bavarian pretzel, served with German mustard. This appetizer’s for sharing, the pretzel is huge!

German Biers Galore!

Wash down all the delicious German food down with authentic German bier! We recommend Benediktiner Weissbier, with its combination of strong caramel notes, with hints of honey and fruits such as bananas and raisins. It’s a harmonious balance of sweet and discrete bitterness in the background, creating a smooth, creamy mouth feel.

Want to enjoy Germany’s number one black lager beer brand? Go with Kostrizer Schwarzbier, with its range of spicy aromas such as sage, roasted chestnuts, dark honey, bitter chocolate and fresh farm-baked bread. You read right! It’s gorgeous stuff, guys. You won’t regret it!

The Best Apfelstrudel in Town 

We’re always looking for reasons to have apple strudel, and this World Cup victory is the perfect excuse! What’s not to love about delicious pastry willed with apples flavored with sugar, cinnamon, raisins and breadcrumbs? This warm traditional dessert’s been around since the 18th century, so it’s definitely good enough for us!

Want the best apple strudel in town? Head to The Neue Galerie down at 5th Ave & 86th St, with their two cafes, Café Sabarsky and Café Fledermaus. They both serve the same menu, so it’s about choosing your preferred ambience. Either way, you’re in for the most immaculate, fresh slice of apple strudel you’ve ever tasted!

German Chicken Schnitzel, Anyone?

If you’re not up for a beer hall, let your kitchen celebrate Germany’s victory for you! We love making chicken schnitzel, a quick and easy recipe to follow thanks to the boneless cutlet of meat, coated in panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs. No gravy required, just a slice of lemon will do! Get the full recipe and instructions here.

Now you’re definitely ready to celebrate with Germany! (Until then, we’re gearing up for World Cup 2018!)
