We’re half way to Oktoberfest, which means it’s time for Maifest.
Maifest is one of mankind’s oldest traditions – the celebration of nature’s bright reawakening after winter’s long, cold darkness. Traditional Maifest celebrations in Bavaria are never complete without Bock Biers, strong beers of German origin that are enjoyed during the spring transition from cold, snowy winters to balmy, sun-drenched summers along the northern Alps.
And who in St. Louis knows strong German beers better than Urban Chestnut? So let’s enjoy them all this weekend at the brewers annual Maifest 2017 celebration.
