Starkbierfest Dallas

What's Starkbierfest you ask? Well, it's a once a year event held in Munich to celebrate the release of each year's batch of Doppelbock beer.  Doppelbock is a style created by monks in Germany to "make it through Lent".  The beer is brewed with a hearty amount of malt and the monks used it to sustain them through their fasting during lent (so you can drink strong beer but you can't eat?? Seems counterintuitive, but what the heck). The festival brings together 10s of thousands of people to celebrate beer & German heritage in Munich each year.

Jeff Fryman  - We'll be doing our own small celebration this year on March 5th.  The event will include live German music, free authentic porcelin Paulaner mugs, The Common Table staff dressed in lederhose & dirndls, and German food.  Having attended Starkbierfest in Munich a few years ago, I can attest to what a great time the event was and should be again. 

The brewery is providing some tremendous support for the event and should have several people on hand to tap the official first keg.

    Since we arrived early, took a while to get beer & food. Even when we arrived @ 1:15, they were already out of the porcelain mugs. The Starkbier was very good. The pork schnitzel & pretzel were huge. At one time, The band played a variation of Pink Floyd's Brick in the Wall relating to beer. The apfel strudel was wonderful & played nicely against the coffee (espresso) notes of the Aged Mephistopheles.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
