Starting this Saturday - August 20, 2011 the 39th annual Snowbird Oktoberfest begins. Oktoberfest Halle located in the Snowbird Event tent is chock full of music, dancing and traditional German cuisine including bratwurst, sauerkraut, apfelstrudel and of course local craft beers.
There's one tiny thing that irks me about this Oktoberfest... No damn Märzen! How can you have an Oktoberfest without the traditional beer?! I guess I'm going to have to make it my personal crusade to get one of the beer providers to make a special Oktoberfest style beer for 19 day festival... Just say'n.
And speaking of Märzens - Hoppers' Brewmaster and Secret Agent, Donovan Steele will have his Oktoberfest beer, Stein Knockers available for the Upcoming City Weekly Beerfest. If your not sure what a Märzen is? try this one, and you'll know why the style should be represented at Snowbird.
