It’s a bona fide sausage fest.

This week, the Loreley Williamsburg biergarten hosts its first sausage festival, launched pretty much just for the love of bratwurst.

Dinner specials between Jan. 26 and 30 feature 12 different types of sausages — nine from the famed purveyor Schaller & Weber and three from Meat Hook at Brooklyn Kitchen — in all manners of bratwurst, weisswurst and wieners.

Sausage platters will be available in a variety of sizes, ranging from three ($16) to the giant platter of 12 ($38), which is great for groups.

Nothing goes better with the beef than beer, and if you order seven or more sausages, you’ll receive a complimentary round of Koelsch, one of the restaurant’s 12 imported beers on tap. In addition to sausage, each platter comes with mashed potatoes and Loreley’s homemade sauerkraut.

For a side of music with your meat, head to the restaurant on Jan. 29, when Bill Carney’s Jug Addicts provides some foot-stomping tunes. The only thing missing will be the dirndls.
