Oktoberfest, sortaSeptember 26 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C
There is another active monastery in Salzburg. This one is Augustinian, and they still brew their own beer. In fact, I'm told they have the largest beer hall in Austria. Officially, Oktoberfest was cancelled, but here I am sitting in the beer garden with a liter of beer in a stoneware mug. There are no songs, no raised mugs, no frauleins carrying 3 full mugs. I guess this is about as close as I'll get to it his year.
The 1st picture makes this official. The 2nd picture is in the beer hall. It not only looks empty; it is empty because everyone is outside in the beer garden in the 3rd picture. No surprise; it's about 75°F and sunny just now.
I admit, no wurst. Ribs tonight. Hey, this is Austria.Read more
