Not Enough Beer For Oktoberfest
I'm sorry to report the tragic news that there may not be enough beer at Oktoberfest. There is plenty of beer available at the brewery's but there is a huge shortage of bottles and casks. This is bad news on a planetary scale. While I haven't been to Oktoberfest(Munich) in a number of years I can't imagine a shortage of beer. I will note that I have been to the Oktoberfest in Helen, Georgia recently and while it can't compare to Munich it is a hoot. Good beer, good food and a lot of good fun. Lots of live German bands( maybe not German per se but playing German music....polka). I think most of them are from Wisconsin. Anyhoo...a great bit of fun in the Georgia mountains in the fall.
