Well it's official: as of 12:00 EST on Saturday the 18th, Oktoberfest in Bavaria has begun! The real Oktoberfest starts earlier than it does here. Fortunately, only a little over two weeks till the festival hits KW - I can see my Oktoberfesting hat on the shelf eager to go!
Have yourself a Bayrischerbier to celebrate: Lowenbrau, Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner, whatever you can find!
