2016 OktoBierFest

The 4th Annual OktoBierFest combined wonderful music, bier and food.  Music was provided by the Enzian Buam Alpine Yodelers and the Round Top Brass Band.  Many varieties of Paulaner bier was served along with delicious German food.  As always, the "bierstein holding endurance contest" was great fun - and this year, the ladies joined in.  

Below are some sample photos from the event.   There is a slideshow available with all the photos. Please click here to see all the photos.  

Join us in 2017 for the 5th annual OktoBierFest, to be held on Saturday, October 28th!
