Gentlemen, it’s time to break out the lederhosen. That’s right; a real Oktoberfest is coming to New York, and more specifically to the East River and 23rd Street.
Beer, bratwurst and bar maids. Yes my friends, Oktoberfest is upon us again, and it’s the best 16 days of the year where you get to rejoice your true (or honorary) German heritage and over indulge in sausage, schnitzel and sauerkraut.
Oktoberfest is in full swing, but you don’t have to venture to Germany to experience delicious beer and authentic bites. TV 10-55′s Alex Denis visited SingleCut Beersmiths in Astoria, where the brewery with a laid-back vibe is celebrating the beer festival.
Oktoberfest begins this Saturday, September 21 with lively celebrations almost non-stop until Sunday, October 6. Visit these Big Apple restaurants, bars and special events for seasonal brews and authentic German garb and grub.
