The best I've tasted since we were in Germany!

This is a Butchery the way it should be. I started buying from Lothar and June after I had some of their andouille sausage at a local brewery 6 years ago. It was so good I sought them out at the Purcellville Farmers Market, and I now get the majority of of my non poultry meat from Lothar and June at their E Main St location. He is a classic German butcher but absorbs tastes from other cultures and produces sausages with international flavors and traditions. If you can be an artist with meat then Lothar is one. I now buy most of my beef and pork there, and just bought my first lamb product. It is not just sausages there as their steaks, chops, roasts and other cuts are superb and are locally sourced. Their filet's, delmonico's and ribeyes are the best I have ever bought. The best aspect of shopping there has been to have the vendor-customer relationship change over time. June and Lothar are an eclectic and interesting couple whose company you come to enjoy. Finding a place where you enjoy going and get a great product is an increasingly rare privilege and is one of the benefits of buying local. Buying local from friends is even better.

Excellent products for an actual German Master Butcher (and member of the American Team at this year's World Butcher Championship!). Awesome selection of not only handmade traditional German meats such as wursts and schnitzels, but all the American cuts you like too, including such delicacies as smoked pork chops. On top that, his lovely wife is Korean, so he's also mastered Korean sausages, bulgogi and more.

I've never had a visit here that wasn't good. From the quality of the food to the knowledge of the employees, the trip has always been worth it. The other benefit of this being and owner-operator enterprise is that sometimes you get to run into Lothar running the counter. My last visit, he told me about the experience that he had participating with 4 other butchers in the World Butchers' Championship in Ireland this year. I don't always run out to Purcelville, but I make a point to stop in when I do.

Douglas Graham

There are very few places in the US where you can purchase fresh meat products prepared in the traditional German style. But that's not all they have, fresh steak, eggs, potato salad and Sauerkraut, bacon... More things that I'm forgetting. And for the quality you're getting, the price is reasonable. If you're not already shopping here, you're missing out.

Googled gourmet sausage in Virginia and this popped up. Drove an hour to get there and would do it again! Quite a selection of meats and sausages. Knowledgeable and friendly. No rush. They explain and answer any and all questions. We live in CT. Wish they were closer! Can't wait until next year!!!!!!

Raymond Roberts

Lothar is awesome. Very friendly. Always helpful. Great products. Try the thick cut bacon. The ribeyes are amazing.

Can I just say that I am SO happy! The woman is the kindest person ever. She is so personable and informative without being over the top. I called last week to see if they had beef ribs and her phone etiquette was amazing so I made the 25 minute drive over. When I arrived she remembered speaking to me and gave me a choice between ribs. My children were with me and she not only engaged with them but also asked their names and gave them cookies. My son said he can’t wait to go back and I can’t wait either. The meat is very high quality and is packaged pre trimmed—a simple luxury I am not used to. Lots of care and attention to detail is put into their products. The shop itself was very clean. I won’t be going anywhere else!

Danielle Sweet

I wish I lived much closer to Lothar's shop because I would be going here for all my meat and sausages. Lothar is warm and welcoming and eager to help you pick out the perfect cut of meat or brat. We were out in Purcellville for the day (we live in Annandale, VA) and stopped by to stock up on some sausages. Lothar made some suggestions and educated us on the differences between some of the different styles and so far from what we tried, we've loved them all! So tasty, fresh, and seasoned perfectly! We may have to start making this a bi-monthly trip because we love it so much! Thank you Lothar :)

Oh, My. Went to Lothar's for the first time today with my wife. We had read good reviews, and have been wanting to find a reliable butcher who can provide reliably good meats. We picked up delmonico's, cowboy ribeyes, and two types of sausages. When we got home tonight, we decided to try immediately the schwenkbraten. The cuts of pork were absolutely incredible. They were tender and flavorful. Lothar's rub was absolutely incredible. Wonderful flavors, delicate, nothing overwhelming. The amount of rosemary was perfect. To cap it all, Lothar and his wife were wonderful. They were educational regarding the cuts of meats, as well as what flavors to match with what meals. For example, a particular sausage had enough heat to be perfect on a morning with temperatures in the low 60's; LOL!! Finally, his wife told us about how he is on the Team USA for an international World Butcher Challenge to be held in Belfast March 2018. Lothar is one of 6 butchers on the American team. We have amazing talent in Loudoun County. We will be back to this shop!

Ben Miller

First time in today. Lothar and his coworker (wife?) were awesome. Super friendly and great little shop. Excellent selection. Look forward to returning.

Kellie Tatem

Best place in the area for local meats and gourmet sausages. Lothar and his wife are both delightful people and I enjoy stopping in every few weeks to stock up and see what's new. Lothar is always helpful and friendly and full of knowledge about food and wine. His Kielbasa is beyond compare and if you get there at the right time he's got some NY Strip steaks that will melt in your mouth.

Mike Campos

Great customer service and knowledgeable butcher. Will be going back for another brisket

Paul Tillman

Great place, wonderful owners.

Martin Schmidt-Bremer Jr

A great place to get fresh, high-quality meats and meat products among other things. The owner, Lothar Erbe, has a variety of cuts and particularly sausages packed and ready to go. BUT, when you ask, he can also get special things, such as German-style Schweinshaxe/Eisbein or Sauerbraten, for example. For special orders, please call at least a week in advance. Lothar is from Germany originally and learned butchery the right way: in an apprenticeship.

William Goss

The half smokes were fantastic. The best I've had in years.

Katharina Smith

Small store BUT ...size doesn't matter !!!

Steven Hernandez

Incredible Sausages and amazing service. We swung in 5 minutes before closing and Lothar and June were exceptionally helpful and patient with us. When we noted we had about a 45 min drive ahead of us Lothar and June helped us with some delicious landjager meatsticks so we wouldn't have to settle for inferior road munchies on the drive back! We cooked up the kasekrainer this evening and it is better than the ones I had in Bavaria. Looking forward to the rest of the delicious morsels we brought back. Lothar and June are a lot of fun, we really enjoyed his story about jalapeños. Will be stopping back by the next time we are in town!

The finest of sausages in all shapes and sizes!

Mark Rider

I live near Purcellville and found out about Lothar's from friends in Ashburn. Stopped and bought half-smokes for the grill. Fantastic!! May have to go back again tomorrow.

Frank Sommer

The sausage is the best I have ever encountered. Fresh ingredients with avoidance of preservatives and artificial additives, orchestrated by a master butcher with years of apprenticeship and experience in Germany, makes this my number 1 choice. Nice selection, friendly and personal service.

Walked in a month ago and the shop was actually closed but the owner's wife gladly talked to us about their products and back history. After chatting for a bit and seeing our interest she told us she would open back up so we could purchase some thing which we did. Their sausages and thick cut bacon were amazing. Being new to the area it was nice meeting friendly people and finding a new place to shop.

Amazing gourmet sausage .

Bob Carlston

Wonderful sausages & other meat products, from great people.

Suzanne Amaya Platt

Extraordinary sausages and sauerkraut. He is a master of his craft for authentic german sausage varities, and a variety American and international flavors as well. Worth the drive out to Purceville to see the whole selection of sausages and other gorgeous-looking butchery products.

Deborah Panell

Excellent fresh kraut and wurst! Kraut is typical of the Bavarian style. This is the real deal! For anyone who knows and loves Bavarian food, this the place to go.
