PRINCETON — Now in its third year, Lara and Jay Schneider recently reopened their seasonal German brat stand, named Zum Alten Kautz (Ye Olde Owl).

After living in Princeton for five years, Jay, a native German, started to miss some of the specialties of his home country. A lot of brats were tried and then a decision was made.

“We are trying to be as authentic as possible,” said Kautz. ”That is why we get all our meat from a German butcher in Madison, Wis.”

Besides a selection of brats with or without sauerkraut, there are also lesser known specialties like Currywurst, Leberkaese and Rote Gruetze.

The grill will be open every Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. next to the Apollo Theater in downtown Princeton and for special events.

“We tried to be open three days a week the first year, but that was too much for us,” he said.
