It’s Oktoberfest! This week on the show, we’re drinking five different German brews, three of which are Oktoberfest beers from Paulaner, Weihenstephaner, and Hofbräu, and then two more beers from Weihenstephaner, their Vitus Weizenbock, and their doppelbock, Korbinian.
Greg is studying for his Certified Cicerone® exam, and it just so happens that he’s researching Germany and its breweries and beers. Not only did he provide all of the beer for the show this week, he steps up and drops knowledge on the history of Oktoberfest and its beer.
Oktoberfest began as a festival in 1810 that lasted 16 days, from late September to early October, and celebrated the wedding of Prince Ludwig and Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The 16-day beer-drinking extravaganza was closed with horse races, and then probably a good week or so of recovery.
One really cool thing about these German imports is that they are very high quality brews that are fairly inexpensive. So, get together with your buddies, buy a couple cases of German brews, and learn about the roots and history of beer.
Until next week, brew the shit out of it! Prost!
