Cancel your flights! Munich isn’t that great anyway. Ok, I haven’t been there, but I have been to Brouwerij Lane and it’s awesome. Our friends there are throwing an Oktoberfest that’s sure to be just as Spaß (“fun” in German) as the original.
The fest will run from 12-10pm on 9/28. That’s 10 hours of Spaß!!!!
There will be food, Oktoberfesty beers, and DJ’s spinning Oom-Pah. How do DJ’s spin this? Answer: No idea, but after enough pints, it can’t possibly matter.
And now, I present to you this handy Oktoberfest Food Phrase Translation Guide:
Hendl = Chicken
Schweinebraten = Roast Pork
Schweinshaxe = Grilled Ham Hock
Steckerlfisch = Grilled Fish on a Stick
Würstl = Sausage
Käsespätzle= Cheese Noodles
Reiberdatschi =Potato Pancake
Weisswurst = White Sausage
Can’t pronounce Käsespätzle? Try ordering a Freigeist Abraxxxas Lichtenheiner Weisse*. Cheers!
*This is a beer that Brouwerij Lane will actually be serving for Oktoberfest. I’m sure it is delicious.
