We have a bunch around here as well, doubt if they'll go on. They haven't said anything about this one https://www.greatamericanbeerfestival.com/ it's more of an industry/beer nerd thing than a mass party but it is insanely popular, it usually sells out in less than an hour when online sales start. At over $100 a pop I haven't ever actually been tempted to attend.

Yeah that one is a bit price, but unlimited sampling might make it worthwhile, at least once if at all. Unless you're the driver, than no point.

 

 

But it isn't Deusche :D

 

Maybe the others of the bunch you mention are ^_^

 

With the quality German (and Austria, Belgium, or where ever else from central Europe some of it may be coming from) sausages, pretzel, with good Beer. That combination. With correct atmosphere. Trains mean no driver needed.

The Osaka website has a message saying that it was cancelled for this year because of the virus.

I'm good for the 2nd half of September and the 1st of October. That is my annual Octoberfest avoidance holiday.

 

Have encountered it by accident while traveling in the past, and California versions of it closer to home. Beer does not always bring out the best in people.

It certainly brings out half-digested beer, and chunks.

The first time I went to Munich for the October Fest I found it by following the trail of vomit from u-bahn station to the fest grounds.

The large groups of drunk college students at some California versions of it are entertaining, but the German-ness gets lost in the behavior along the way.

 

Parking lot vomiting etiquette is to not get any on a vehicle.

 

Parking lot urination etiquette varies between the sexes.

I prefer the ones that don't try too hard to ape the Munich fest. Some of the local ones to me have been around long enough that they have their own traditions and those work better than the ones that try to be authentic.
