Oktoberfest parties have been a tradition in Munich, Bavaria since 1810. While over 5 million people are in attendance each year, not every American has the means to fly to Germany for the event. SaveOnBrew.com – the only beer price-search engine -- recently published suggestions on hosting one’s own Oktoberfest 2012 celebration on The Beer Blog at http://www.SaveOnBrew.com.
“This will be my second year hosting an Oktoberfest party,” says SaveOnBrew’s wordsmith, Jennn Fusion. “What I love about these annual events is that there are some unexpected surprises along the way. Someone always shows up wearing lederhosen and an alpine hat. We drink out of crazy vessels – like Das Boot and the Utica Club’s Schultz stein. The whole house just reeks of sauerkraut and mustard. And what other party plays funny drinking songs with accordions?”
The Beer Blog includes recipes for German sauerkraut and Spätzle sauce and a full listing of authentic German sausages and sides. High-quality German beers like Spaten, Beck’s, Warsteiner Dunkel, Jever, Löwenbräu, Aventinus, St. Pauli Girl, Bitburger, and Ayinger are recommended. The article breaks down the beer styles and flavors for newcomers to German beer as well.
Ambiance is also important for any party, so readers will find a list of essential Oktoberfest party supplies, decorations, music, movies, and appropriate drinking vessels. The article is really a comprehensive listing of Oktoberfest party ideas from start to finish, giving the enthusiastic partier everything he or she needs to host a truly authentic German event.
“I recommend that you learn the words to ‘Ein Prosit’ and add that song to your Oktoberfest party playlist many times,” Fusion advises. “It’s a drinking game song that really brings people together to sing and toast to really excellent beer. Tradition dictates that you must finish however much beer is left in your glass when this song comes on, so it adds another layer of fun to your party.”
