Barrels and barrels of beer! That’s what comes to mind when you start thinking about Germany, and what better place to see it, drink it, experience it other than the Oktoberfest. The Oktoberfest isn’t the only beer fest in the country, in the fall every little town or dorf has its own wine or beer fest and often the smaller it is, the more intimate it is, and the easier it is to get to know the locals.
In Germany, it is customary to share tables, especially at festivals. Small groups, couples, or families will find a spot they fit in and plop down. Whoever comes and sits next to them become their drinking buddies for the night. I enjoy this so much that I’ve stopped trying to get a large group to go to the fest with, just Jim and me. That way we can be assured that we’ll be adopted by our tablemates. So much fun!
