Greg & Carl Kruegermann

Kruegermann Pickles

Carl and Greg Kruegermann are brothers who grew up in Elysian Valley (not Frogtown!) in a East German immigrant family whose livelihood was to make pickles. Their family’s business employed members of the community to make traditional dill pickles in the German style.

At the end of 2022, the brothers face the devastating truth that their gentrifying neighborhood can no longer sustain the business that supported their family for nearly 60 years. Learn more about their story and upbringing in this video.
