I'm having a party at my place. German food and all german homebrew. I've got an oktoberfest and a hefeweizen on tap now. Will have my dunkel and Alt done and on tap by the time the party rolls around. Woohoo!

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.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

What is Oktoberfest?
Day after day, it reappears. Night after night my heartbeat shows the fear. Ghosts appear and fade away. Come back another day.

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.
Hey, knock that shvt off. We're drinkin' here.
