6 Pack of Tips for Oktoberfest

Ok, Today's the Day !!!

The next phase of immersion begins with the Dayton German Club Festival. Probably just a short visit tonight for dinner and drinks, and then maybe a return engagement tomorrow.

Bier, brats, sauerkraut, oompah bands and just good old fun. What more could you ask for?

2011 Memory

In 40 days I touch down in Munich for 8 days of Bier drink.

My last trip to Oktoberfest was in 2011. On the T-minus 40 day mark, I broke my hip requiring surgery so I abruptly had to back out. I had surgery and was miserable knowing my friends and family were going. At about the T-mius 15 day mark I decided to go while on crutches against my doctors advice. The trip was still amazing even though I was in pain. I logged so many miles while walking on my crutches. I walked laps around the English Garden, climbed Eagle Nest, and navagatig around the crowded bier tents. The trip awesome.

So here we are again at the 40 mark, lets not break anything.

We have been by this place, but never went there. I think this trip deserves a visit; only a 10 minute walk.

A tale of horror. But maybe not...

With all the scare tactics being used on us now, I thought I would try one of my own.  It actually has a happy ending.  LOL

Airbrau in Munchen

Never took the time to visit this place. Always in a hurry to hit the ground and head to the hotel, or hurrying early in the morning to make our flight. Since we get in at 9:15, thought maybe a quick stop-by would be appropriate.

Check it out here...

Also, here's Larry's review from the BDG2M:

"We only ask three things of Munich beer establishments: They be convenient, good, and, well, cheap. Normally, it's a "pick any two" proposition. Tough to get all three. Airbräu scores the hat trick. It could not be more convenient to visitors arriving in Munich. It's literally inside the airport. But unlike most airport offerings, instead of a mark-up, it's a mark down. These are some of the most economical choices in beer in all of Munich.

Airbräu is actually a brewpub, since they are making the most of a spacious airport location to brew several varieties, including a helles, a dark, a wheat and a doppelbock that includes the obligatory -ator suffix, called, naturally, Aviator. The food is outstanding as well and at reasonable prices.

What a great way to pop the cap on Munich and celebrate your arrival with a first-taste of the city's most prized liquid offerings. So, roll the luggage along to an outstanding kick-starter to your vacation. Airbräu takes off with 3-1/2 beers."

Prost !

I'm not religious.....

But doesn't this make you want to go to church? Kloster Andechs on a Sunday with a couple Dopplebachs. A truly religious experience. Can't wait for September.
