Oktoberfest Menu

September 24, 2013 in Family, Recipes by Anna

It’s fall and you know that means Oktoberfest! Unfortunately, many people can’t make it to the real Oktoberfest which kicks off in Munich every September, but there are many Oktoberfest celebrations elsewhere around the globe. Here’s a list from The Travel Channel and one from USA Travel About.com for places to celebrate in America. If you’re looking for a menu for your own Oktoberfest, you’ve come to the right place!

While living overseas, my husband and I were able to attend Oktoberfest a few years ago. When we left Germany, I carried an extra forty pounds from all of the delicious food! I consider it my lasting souvenir. Ha. Ha. Ha. Creating this menu makes my tummy grumble!

Oktoberfest Menu

You can’t have Oktoberfest without beer! (Well, to be honest…you can. Beer wasn’t the main attraction at Oktoberfest for years.) But, I like beer, so let’s talk beer!

At Oktoberfest, only certain beers are allowed. But, at your party, you can do whatever you want!

Many vendors offer various seasonal options. Here’s a list of 50 beers for autumn from Rate Beer. Here’s a list of fall beers from Today Food. You may already have a favorite, so don’t hesitate to stock up for Oktoberfest! Prost!

Now, on to some food! I didn’t cook any food for this post, but I’ll send you to some other sites that have! Don’t forget to come back to this page to check out more links to recipes though!
