Dog Haus, the craft casual concept known for its gourmet hot dogs, sausages, burgers and one-of-a-kind creations, is celebrating Oktoberfest with the return of its festive sausage – Oktoberwürst!


For one month, guests can say “dankeschön” to Dog Haus for bringing back the famed Oktoberwürst – one-third pound of Cajun spiced emmentaler 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 throughout October.


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.


“Oktoberwürst is back by popular demand,” said Dog Haus Co-Founder & Partner Hagop Giragossian. “Adam created this one-of-a-kind, kick-ass sausage to give guests a taste of Munich during such a festive time. 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.”


“Oktoberwürst is a special limited-time offer that we serve just in time for Oktoberfest,” Gertler said. “Its flavors will transport our guests to Germany with every bite. And, the best part is, we get to give back to No Kid Hungry with each one our guests sink their teeth into.”
