Break out your lederhosen, it’s Germanfest time again in Milwaukee. Milwaukee is a serious beer and bratwurst sort of town and that’s thanks to a large population of German immigrants that started moving there in the mid-19th century.
The fest runs all weekend and started Thursday night. Styrina, one of Germany’s pop stars is performing and there is a jet flyover (not particularly German, but happens to be going on as part of the Air and Sky Show this weekend).
Some local Frauleins hanging around the strudel cart. From wursts and schnitzels to kraut and potato pancakes, German food abounds. So does beer and Jagermeister. Buy a beer boot from Sprecher Brewery.
Chikaria provides some lively musical entertainment. Local brewer, Sprecher provides some damn nice beer. (My personal favorite is Black Bavarian. Sprecher’s beers won 9 medals (5 gold) in the 2009 United States Open Beer Championship)
And for Packer football fans out there, I just have to share this great t-shirt with you…
