St. Benedict hosted Oktoberfest this weekend and we attended for the first time.
The Omm-pah band was in fine form.
Of course, there was the obligatory "Chicken Dance" which is aways fun to watch/ogle...
And while the festival did offer numerous microbrews (good from a locavore stance), they only had one German beer and it had sold out on Friday!
I could let the lack of German beer go. I'm not a beer fan, although I have occasionally been able to tolerate a hefeweizen. But the lack of a better offering of German food really depressed us. We will probably not be back. The "Chicken Dance" is not that big of an enticement.
We did drown our sorrows at Secco with a delicious glass of Schleret Pinot Blanc from Alsace. It's not German either, but closer to Germany than the Oktoberfest.
