German Restaurant sets Bratwurst Record


A Chicago based German restaurant wanted to get themselves into the book of records for something, so what better way than attempt to make the world’s largest bratwurst?

Huffington Post reports, The Berghoff Restaurant challenged the pages of history on Sept 15 by attempting to make the world’s largest piece of bratwurst. The challenge was met during the annual Oktoberfest celebration.

CEO Carlyn Berghoff said, “We’ve been doing this event for 26 years and we wanted to mix things up by doing something crazy and fun,” reported the HuffPost Weird News.

The bratwurst weighed over 40 pounds at 47-feet and 3-inch and took half an hour to cook. It was served with a bun 50 feet long that weighed 35 pounds. The Berghoff was successful in setting the world record and was able to raise $1,000 towards A Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.
