With sometimes nothing more than their fine sausage making skill, many German sausage makers moved into North America. The German-American Usinger family story reflects this legacy. It involves Frederick Usinger, who founded Usinger's in 1880, and who came from Wehen near Wiesbaden (Hessen) to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Usinger's today has available over 70 varieties of authentic German sausages, including liver sausages, summer sausages, bratwurst, knackwurst and frankfurters.
