Last Friday, I was invited to experience OktoberFest in Philadelphia at the 23rd Street Armory. This is the 3rd year for this event put on by Brauhaus Schmitz which mimics an authentic Munich Festival tent. When we first arrived the line to get in was down the street for both VIP and General Admission. Some attendees were dressed up in authentic German looks including lederhosen to get in the spirit of the event.

Inside, the 16,000 square foot building was decorated in Bavarian blue and white ceilings along with authentic festival tables and benches imported from Germany. When we first came in, we were greeted by a huge pretzel and a liter of beer from Paulaner Brauerei Müchen. I'm not really a beer drinker, but their OktoberFest brew was very smooth. (I still can't believe I drank the whole thing!)

After we found a table, one of the many waitresses came to see if we needed anything, so we ordered some food. We both wanted to try the roasted pork, sauerkraut and potato salad which was very good thanks to Valentin Bay. As the night continued music from The Hematklange Band, got the crowd excited, singing and dancing along and standing on the benches and shouting was very much encouraged!

This was our first time experiencing OktoberFest in Philly and we loved it! It was a lot of fun, very interactive, great food, great drinks, and an overall great time. This event is good for meeting up with friends after work or just getting together on the weekends. People came from all over to be at OctoberFest Philly, my husband even met someone from Germany! OktoberFest Philly only comes around once a year, so next time get your tickets quick because it will sell out! I'll do my best to remind you ahead of time! In the meantime, "Like" Bauhaus Schmitz on Facebook to not miss a thing!
