The Sausage King himself Doug Sohn (also of Beerpinions fame), recently took Louisa Chu of the Chicago Tribune on a tour of the best sausages here in Chicago we were honored he chose to stop by at Kaiser Tiger to enjoy our classic sausages:
Kaiser Tiger, near where the West Loop borders the Near West Side. The expansive bar and restaurant offers a lesser-known sausage menu — a rarity, Sohn noted. All come on beautifully griddled pretzel buns. Sohn ordered two: the Beer and Bacon, a pork sausage cooked in Lagunitas IPA, wrapped in bacon and topped with pickled red onions and house-made beer mustard; and the Jailbreak Piggy, a wild boar sausage topped with cream cheese and fried onion strings.
All of Kaiser Tiger’s sausages are made just for the restaurant by Makowski’s Real Sausage in Bridgeport, founded in 1920 as Victory Sausage and now owned by a fourth-generation family member, Nicole Makowski.
We hope you’ll follow Doug’s lead and come try our delicious sausages!
