Sausage Man

Finding Wurst in Germany is like sand at the beach. But if fresh and innovative flavours are more your thing, then the Sausage Man is the right man for you! Check out the website to see the amazing products TSMNS have on offer!

Who is the Sausage Man? Simon Ellery, a New Zealander-turned-Berliner, is the man behind The Sausage Man Never Sleeps. Starting with his apprenticeship at a butchery in Ashburton at age 15, Simon built his career in export meat production and food safety before catching the travel bug. After landing in the UK, Simon rediscovered his passion for butchery while working at Lidgate's of Holland Park. A chance meeting brought Simon to Berlin where he worked at Bünger Fleischerei for two years before becoming a German-certified Fleischmeister. Using a second-hand meat grinder he found at the flea market in Mauerpark, Simon began making fresh sausages for friends using decidedly non-traditional flavours. In April 2014, he started selling these wares, and the official journey of The Sausage Man, Simon's muse and his charming mascot, began.

In 2021, The Sausage Man Never Sleeps became the official sponsor of TKCC. Not only helping out with the cost of our tailored sports kit, Simon himself flew into Amsterdam from Berlin to join TKCC’s first ever cricket tour in the Netherlands. The Knockers are proud to have The Sausage Man’s logo adorn our bright pink shirts, and look forward to many more delicious initiatives in the future!
