Welcome to Brookside Foods!

Our experience in Butchershop deli-meats began in 1936. At a duplex on Cleveland's West Side, we mixed sausage in the kitchen and used the garage as a smokehouse.

Cleveland was a tough meat town then, rivaling Chicago and Kansas City. National companies got their start and moved on. We stayed because we liked serving the neighborhood groceries. Pleasing those fussy, European hausfras taught us about quality.

We still use natural animal casings to give our wieners, ethnic sausages an "Wurstmacher Special Recipes" their distinctive Old World shape and flavor. We combine lean cuts of meat with special spices, roast and smoke them slowly, and deliver them quickly to preserve fresh flavors that have earned us a Butchershop reputation.
