Ah, fall. My favorite season. I definitely got a nice taste of that crisp cool autumn weather this weekend and I really enjoyed it. Fall is also great for beer, with all the breweries releasing their Harvest Ales, Pumpkin Beers, and Oktoberfest Marzens. Then, there’s all the great Oktoberfest celebrations, usually involving big tents in parking lots, polka bands, and lots of tasty brews. Recently, I met Mike from New Bohemia in Northeast Minneapolis, who invited me to attend their first annual Oktoberfest celebration.
I’ve never been to New Bohemia before, but after checking their website I see that they brand themselves as a “Modern European Bier Hall” and they serve up a large selection of beer and wursts to satisfy your thirst and hunger, respectively.
Their Oktoberfest is this coming weekend and sounds like it should be a great time. They will have a ceremonial keg tapping with the Lord Mayor of New Bohemia and will have the music and beer ready for all your Oktoberfesting needs. There will be a number of breweries represented, including: Ayinger, Bad Weather, Brooklyn, Goose Island, Leinenkugel’s, Paulaner, Samuel Adams, Schell’s, Third Street, The Traveler, and Widmer. Sounds like a good time, right?
So, I’m going to head to New Bohemia this weekend and check it out. Maybe you should, too!
