Oktoberfest in Berlin

ohh.....should have taken my camera last night! We went to a German restaurant beside Schlachtensee (south-west Berlin). Beer was served in 1 litre steins! Boy, were they heavy!!! The kids were served lemonade in 1/2 litre steins! A lot of fun, lots of beer swilling men and women, music played by lederhosen wearing men. After 2 1/2 beers Phil was a bit worse for wear, and so were the other guys we were with. Next year we will get to Munich for Oktoberfest. We are told it is more of a Southern Germany tradition.

More practise in drinking needed for the next time by Phil. There is an Oz standard to be upheld and 2 1/2 glasses isn't passable.

Tee hee, I remember drinking beer out of those humongous steins in a pub in Munich several years ago. It wasn't Oktoberfest either but it was just as fun :) If I remember correctly a half stein did me in and I think DH only managed one, so Phil did real well!!
