1. Scottsdale
Brat Haus

Still the best place in the Valley to nosh on an upscale sausage – we love the wine-flight-like “brat board” – while perusing an elite selection of craft brews. 3622 N. Scottsdale Rd., 480-947-4006, brathausaz.com

2. Phoenix
Edelweiss Biergarten

A true German biergarten, this sprawling North-Central carbohydrate playground imagines German-Hungarian classics like rinderrouladen (essentially a pinwheel of beef, bacon and onions under gravy) in all their belt-busting Teutonic glory. 2625 E. Bell Rd., 602-404-5919, edelweissphoenix.com

3. West Valley
Haus Murphy’s

Lively dirndl-attired servers, fun stunt dishes like the “2-pound pork schnitzel with a cup of Jager-and-paprika sauce” make this Glendale eatery a modern classic. 5739 W. Glendale Ave., 623-939-2480, hausmurphys.com

4. East Valley
Zur Kate

Translating as “to the old smokehouse,” this grandpa-pleasing old-school restaurant won the EV’s decades-long “wurst wars” when neighboring Bavarian Point closed last year. 4815 E. Main St.,Mesa, 480-830-4244, zurkate.com
