    It appears that way.

    P.S. Something funny going on here. I posted this and it appeared to be on another Koenemann's page. Moved it here.

    There are still several parcels in Lake County with Wheeling addresses including Chevy Chase Country Club. Lynfred Winery is 971 N.

    931 Milwaukee definitely doesn't exist anymore.

    I posted some info on the Koenemann's Face Book page a while back, but I was talking with a few others in another butcher shop and Koeneman's came up because we bought a few of their brats. One of the people said that there was more they wouldn't talk about, but apparently the "Ukrainian" group who contracted to buy the K's not only failed to buy, but did some very unscrupulous things to sabotage things going forward. it clearly wasn't anything to do with Bendes. We're glad they continue with the recipes to help reduce the nostalgia a bit with so many places closed.
    Good wishes to all.

    This person has been following the Koenemann saga as much as I have. What he said is something I heard, too.

    I met the new owners who fizzled out. A while later, I went to their shop to find a sticker the electricity had been shut off.

    At Bende's, there is a sales lady who I remember from Koenemann's who responds quite angry about this situation. No details, but clearly it was not pretty.

    Hi,

    One of my favorite products from Koenemann's was their Sulze with a vinegary kick.

    When I went to Bende to try their Koenemann's recipe intepretation, it had a rubbery texture and not much vinegar.

    When I was in Milwaukee recently, I bought Usinger's Sulze. It is far closer to what I liked at Koenemann's with a very nice vinegar kick and a less rubbery texture.

    Regards,

    If you're trying to ask if I have more information, just ask. The answer is no. The shop staff we talked to said something to the effect that there was more she knew, but wouldn't go into detail. I don't know if she knew details, or didn't want to repeat partial or inaccurate info. Ask at other butcher shops. Perhaps someone else will say more.

    The brats were ok.

    I didn't get the email notification on these latest postings until today.
