Next Meeting Sept. 14

You don't have to travel to Munich to enjoy great Oktoberfest
brew - just come to the next club meeting at the Gaslight, 3 PM,
on Sunday, September 14.  While the real Oktoberfest lasts for
16 days our will run for only one, so don't miss it!

Oktoberfestbiers have been served at the event in Munich since
1818 and are supplied by 6 breweries- Spaten, Löwenbräu,
Augustiner, Hofbräu, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr.  Traditionally
they were all lagers called Märzen - brewed in March and
allowed to ferment slowly during the summer months.  Originally
these would have been dark lagers, but from 1872 a strong
March brewed version of an amber-red Vienna lager made by
became the favorite Oktoberfestbier. Since the 1970s the type of
beer served at the festival has been a pale lager about 6% abv

The original "Oktoberfest" occurred in Munich, on October 12,
1810 for the commemoration of a marriage between Crown
Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.

This year's' Oktoberfest takes place from September 20 until
October 5 so you have time to make the meeting and still go to
the main event!  

Don't miss the chance to taste some great traditional and surprise
Oktoberfest beers at our next meeting.
