This year's trip is officially cancelled.  Even after Oktoberfest was cancelled,  the illustrious team decided to meet in Munich anyway,  and visit beer halls, tourist traps, and other places of repute.    Unfortunately,  the COVID-19 quarantining, and general misbehavior by our fellow Americans led us to cancel all together.  Not to mention the uncooperative airlines,  who kept cancelling flights.  Stay tuned for further updates for future trips.

Every two years,  my friends and I visit Bavaria,  Munich to be exact, to experience the largest beer festival in the world,  Oktoberfest.  We have been at this since 1993,  and it gets better every time!  Upon arrival, we will follow the standard plan to meet up at the Hofbrauhaus, and then head out to the Oktoberfest grounds.  We then spend the next 5-7 days drinking, singing, eating, and riding around in trains.  

This website is meant to capture our trips, and provide context for how we got to this sorry state.

Our group ranges between 5 and 17 Oktoberfesters.  We arrive from all around the world,  longtime friends, and new friends.  It doesn't matter in Munich, as there is always room at the table.  Unless it is Stammtisch, of course.

Munich, and Bavaria, have many sites to visit during the day, while tending your hangover.
