My husband will sing, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” this time every year. So what’s he celebrating?
Getting into the Christmas spirit WAY too early? Nope.
Happy about our kids going to school? Not yet…next year for our oldest
Just a musical guy? Not so much.
The source of his joy: Oktoberfest seasonal beers!
Our favorite beer comes from Capital Brewery based in Madison, Wisconsin. They make a delicious Oktoberfest variety that is only available for a limited time. During the Packer game, we enjoyed brats and Oktoberfest beer…oh yeah, and some cheese with our salad. At least the food and beverage were enjoyable, as I can’t say the same about the end of the game. Here I am posing with the best beer:
I went to the REAL Oktoberfest in Munich over ten year ago. I took a side trip to Munich one early morning to hit the Oktoberfest grounds before taking a train to visit a friend who was part of my high school German exchange program. Though it was early, there were still plenty dedicated beer drinkers there! I explored the various beer halls and found one to drink ein’ Mass in. I was incredibly impressed with the beer maids ability to carry so many of huge beers all at the same time. I also enjoyed the festive music! After downing one beer, I was done. I simply walked to the train station and had a nap before meeting my friend.
Enjoy the Oktoberfest beer while you can! Prost!
