Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I went to the Denver Oktoberfest today, hoping to sample some authentic Germany beer.

There were no German beers in evidence. The closest thing was this
which is not bad but since you can get it at any random bar or liquor store, it's not too special.

Luckily we have two authentic German restaurants in Colorado Springs, and our own Oktoberfest--which I will check out tomorrow.

Oktoberfest beers aren't what they were. Certainly the mainsteam ones from Munich which are strong and...er well, that's it. They're strong.

the idea was that they were the last knockings of the strong winter beers of the previous years (brewed from September till March) which were got rid of before the new season fresh beer was drunk.
