    Happy Oktoberfest!

    Yep, it's that time of year again:



    In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus: Eins, zwei, ... g'suffa!
    Da läuft so manches Fäßchen aus: Eins, zwei, ... g'suffa!
    Da hat so manche braver Mann: Eins, zwei, ... g'suffa!
    Gezeigt was er so vertragen kann
    Schon früh am Morgen fing er an
    Und spät am Abend kam er heraus
    So schön ist's im Hofbräuhaus.
    Augustiner has better beer, tho. PROST!

    Prost!!!

    First time in a long time I haven't spent this weekend mowing down on metts, brats, gallons of Spaten Oktoberfest and cream puffs in America's biggest Oktoberfest; Oktoberfest Zinzinnati.

    Granted Munich was a nice change of pace last year but I'm missing all that German goodness right now!

    I'm drinkin Goose Island 312 right now! PROST!
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    Damn, every time I see that picture, I fall in love with that woman. She is pretty close to a 10 in L2S book. Thanks Tipp.

    I had the pleasure of attending 2 years ago and I highly recommend that you ad it to your bucket list. Good times had by all.

    mowing down on metts,
    I haven't had a mett since a reds game in '81. I asked a local german butcher if they made them. Never heard of them. Said mett means "meat"

    You were in the right (US) city for German meats. Here's what google turned up to quell your mettwurst needs: http://cincysausageshop.com/products...ettwurst-pack/

    Tell your butcher to get his learn on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mettwurst

    Oktoberfest came via the FedEx delivery guy and dry ice today direct from German Village.

    So stoked to dive into some brats, knocks, kraut, mustard and Dortmunder!

    Swore I was 1 and done...

    Went in 1989, 1990, & 1991. Blurry good memories.

    Can confirm the brats, kraut, horseradish, knocks, mustard and Dortmunder were faaaaaaaaantastic.

    Now I gotta pace myself over the next couple weeks and track down some GLBC Oktoberfest, Spaten Oktoberfest and some mettwust and good pretzels.

    I too look forward to getting back to the fest in Munich one day, for now, this'll have to do.

    We booked one or two we wanted to be sure to be at and hopped around to as many others as we could on the fly.
