July 28, 2008 Leading up to Oktoberfest in Munich, a lot of smaller towns in the Bavarian area will hold their own version of Oktoberfest. Garmischer fest was at the end of July/beginning of August. Traditional dancers perform, Maß's (a liter of beer) are served, 1/2 chickens are devoured, men lift stones...very barbaric! The night of the stone-lifting competition, Sebastian, Terri (my roommate)'s boyfriend, reserved a table for a bunch of us. Our table was in a great location and we enjoyed the entertainment of men lifting a 500 pound stone, while drinking Maß's of Marzen beer, and eating the delicious chicken and brotzeit served at beer fests.
