Oktoberfest at Gasthof zur Gemutlichkeit in North East Minneapolis

Polka inside the beer tents

Four 1/2 litres of Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfestbier

Plenty of polka waltz dancing on the dance floor.

Tableside music while we dine.

German Drinking Songs - Piraten Hits - De Vrijbuiters - Tiroler Polka -

Edelweiss -


  1. I remember my year in Wisconsin. That's when I acquired a taste for beer and potato pancakes. Looks like some folks at these festivities have been knocking down some brewskis as well. You did a great job capturing the event while still able to hold the camera still! :)

  2. Cheers! Looks like great fun, all that dancing isn't to bad once you've had several pints!

  3. The Germans know how to have fun! We have a similar event in Adelaide annually in January called the Schutzenfest.

  4. Pretty great shots for someone I'm sure was consuming those beers!! Love the hand in the last shot :) Makes the shots "human" .

  5. That's my Pop's hand clapping to the beat of the polka. At our table we sang Edelweiss and Do Re Mi.

    Yep, four 1/2 litres of Hacker Pschorr...that's 2 full litres of beer!

  6. In Knoxville we had the Greek Fest and Hola ~ Hispanic Festival. Lots of celebrations! Great blog and photos!

  7. Looks like a great party!!!... And I've lost it... ;-0

  8. Looks like a blast.
