I felt that October first would be a great day to break out my Oktoberfest Bier, even though the festivities in Munich have been already going since the 22nd of September. I did a bit of research of Oktoberfest and ‘lo and behold’ a quick peek at wikipedia shows that it always starts in Late September and goes into the first week of October.
I’ve always had the thought in my mind that Oktoberfest is a whole bunch of Germans sitting under a tent, some accordion & yodeling music playing in the background, with a sea of beer mugs on the table. All singing along in happy unison, hoisting their glasses high, frothy head sloshing too and fro. This is what I imagined I’d become when I drank this beer. The Paulaner München is one of the six brewers who make ‘official’ Oktoberfest beers, along with Augustiner-Bräu, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbräu-München, Löwenbräu, and Spaten. I noticed this ‘Oktoberfest Bier To-Go’ the other day at the liquor store. It is a one litre can of beer along with a gigantic beer glass to hold it in. How could I say no?
