German beer, festivals, bratwursts and lederhosen
It’s that time of year when bars, brasseries and other local businesses offer us a multi-week folk festival that runs from mid-September to early October.
Can your lederhosen handle all the shenanigans?
Whether you want to visit a specific location for your favorite beer or sample more than one local brewery at the Button Brew House’s Oktoberfest, you have a lot of options. Also, pay attention to the date as some arrive earlier than others.
Ready or Not, beer you come.
