I ordered a pretzel to share with everyone, but it didn't taste German enough, (I'm rolling my eyes as I type that,) so I just took a couple of bites before giving the rest away. Later in the night, I ate at a place called Siegi's Sausage Factory, and had a bratwurst, and German potato salad. It was delicious and German and wonderful.
They also had a never-ending supply of German beer. Now, if you know me at all, you know that I am not a beer drinker. I just don't care for the taste. However, I was at Oktoberfest, and there was absolutely no way I was walking out without a stein and a few tastes of German beer.
Did I mention the grown men and women dressed in German gowns who danced like there was no tomorrow? I wish I would have taken more photos of the music and dancing, but most of it was recorded on my Snapchat story, which was then gone after 24 hours. Duh, Dani.
Overall, it basically turned out to be a glorified, more alcoholic state fair. With that being said, I did have a good time, and I look forward to returning!
22 completed, 79 to go!
I tried Kostritzer Pale Ale, which was supposed to have the flavor of refreshing tropical fruits. I personally found it to taste a bit like nail polish remover. My German reatives definitely did not pass their German tastebuds on to me. Ha!
I also tried a Hofbrau Oktoberfest, which is the authentic Oktoberfest served in Munich. Again, I should have stuck with water. Nonetheless, I'm glad I tried them, even if it was just for the sake of trying them.
