||The 2nd annual OktoBierFest features two main
events. For those interested in the craft bier scene, there will be
craft bier tasting from 1-4PM in the hall. Breweries from throughout
Texas and other parts of the USA will be represented. There is a small
admission of $10 to the tasting plus $1 per tasting ticket.|
Biergarten opens at 12 noon under the outdoor pavilion. Fresh German
sausage from the pit, sauerkraut and potatoes will be available all
afternoon. Imported German keg biers from Paulaner, one of Munich's
most popular breweries, will be available. The three different biers
from Paulaner being offered are the Wies'n bier, typically served at
the Munich Oktoberfest, the Oktoberfest bier which is an amber version
of the Wies'n and the Hefeweizen bier, a highly carbonated bier made
from wheat with added yeast resulting in a nice head of foam. Bierfest
visitors will be able to buy the traditional drinking vessels from the
brewery to enhance the taste of these internationally acclaimed biers.
These biers are sold for $3 per serving.
At 1:45 the Keg tapping
ceremony will take place. A special keg of Paulaner's Munich lager
will be tapped to the fanfare of "Ein Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit"!
Tasting of this bier will also be available. This is a gravity fed keg
requiring the tapper to be hammered in with a wooden mallet, just as it
was done a century ago. No CO2 required! At 2PM the German music begins.
On "tap" for this year's musical entertainment are the Round Top Brass
Band and the Enzian Buam (boys). The Band will be playing traditional
German brass band music and the Enzian Buam will be entertaining you
with the best yodeling and alpine music this side of the Atlantic. Entry
to the Biergarten is FREE.
