Sunday Taproom Hours: Noon - 7:00pm
Starting at 3:00pm and after the game, let's get the party started and celebrate in Wausau according to Munich Time!
- Free Glass of Champagne at stroke of Midnight (5:00 p.m.)
- Hats, horns, noise makers
- Piped in music from Germany on our PA
Shortly before midnight in Munich (5:00pm our time) we open a bottle of sparkling wine (Sekt), or champagne. Then we count down the last seconds of the old year... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Prost Neujahr!
Of course you won't hear the expression Happy New Year in Germany. Instead we say "Guten Rutsch" on Silvester Day to wish everyone a good slide into the new year.
During the first day(s) of the new year we say "Prost Neujahr" as a general greeting, although this is very informal. In a more formal way you would say "Frohes Neues Jahr".
" Viel Glück" means good luck, and of course this is what we wish our loved ones. It is common to give a pot of four-leaved clover, decorated with a sweep, horseshoe and/or ladybirds as a gift when you visit friends. They all are considered lucky charms. Another symbol of good luck is a small pig, made of marzipan.
