I have ten gallons that have been lagering just above freezing since the spring. I think I'll call up the boys and see what kind of damage we can do.

Huntington Beach has a pretty decent O-fest celebration at Old World Village. OWV is a smallish all-German mall with resturaunt, a bar and a couple shops. They have a HUGE indoor/outdoor banquet facility that hosts the O-fest each year.

It runs for about a month at gets absolutely packed on Fri & Sat nights. A decent variety of German brews and food. A band is brought over for the event from Germany. And multiple hot waitresses dressed in the appropriate attire.
