2012 Backyard Oktoberfest Recap

As we enter the off-season for Oktoberfest I just wanted to reflect back on our 2012 Oktoberfest season. This was the inaugural year for Backyard Oktoberfest and it is one we will never forget. I was glad to have met so many amazing and wonderful people throughout my travels and I wouldn’t trade that for the world.

This year I attended 13 Oktoberfest events mainly throughout the Chicagoland area. I was happy to have been able to attend the Soulard Oktoberfest as well and break out of Illinois. Time and money are obviously factors that limit our ability to visit every Oktoberfest every year and that is where we would love for you to become involved.

The absolute goal of Backyard Oktoberfest is to become the go-to community for Oktoberfest enthusiasts. This site is designed for you and we would love to have your input on what you would like to see to help make it better than ever. We would even like to have you join us in adding content by writing beer, restaurant, event or Oktoberfest reviews.

In this off season, we plan on doing a huge site revision and adding even more content including more beer reviews, recipes, information for hosting your own Oktoberfest, more information about Munich’s Oktoberfest and who knows what else. Once again, your feedback is highly encouraged. If you are interested in becoming a contributor to the site please contact us.

Once again, thanks to everyone who helped make this Oktoberfest season one to remember! We are already looking forward to 2013!

2012 Oktoberfest Beers are Finally Hitting the Shelves

Today made for a better than usual Monday when I was grocery shopping and saw the first 2012 Oktoberfest beers on the shelves. Although not being from Germany, they were a pleasant sight to see and had to be purchased immediately. I'll have to check back in a few days to see if there are any more at my local liquor store.

The good news is I did not review either of these beers last year so I will have some homework to do in the upcoming days. Happy Monday everyone!
