Big brat for Oktoberfest


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Plenty of people will down lots of brats during Oktoberfest, but they won't look like the one served up Friday morning.

It's the Golden Brat-a massive 60 pound brat more than six feet long. 

With the sauerkraut and bun , it weighs in at nearly 85 pounds.

The American Legion Post 52 hosted an Oktoberfest fundraiser this morning with the proceeds helping local veterans and children.

The brat, made locally by Bakalars, started cooking at ten o clock last night.

Slices of the brat, the size of burger patties were served to those in attendance at the Legion hall.
