I spent the past four days in Berlin on a business trip, and as always, anytime I can spend in Germany is welcome! This time of year is beautiful, the sights, sounds and rhythm of Europe feels like home.
Although I'm missing Oktoberfest again... it kicked off today in my beloved Munich... my stay in Berlin filled a bit of my longing. And a lot of that had to do with the chalkboard sign you see here.
Staying near the Gendarmenmarkt, I was thrilled to see the Augustiner Braeustuben right next to my hotel! My favorite beer, biergarten and Oktoberfest beer hall, a few steps way from my Berlin residence. So that's where the sign comes in. "One of a kind in Berlin!" The evening we were there they started to serve my absolute favorite beer Augustiner Edelstoff from the wood cask. Seriously. Delicious.
Perfect timing. Pair with some Obatzda, Wiener Schnitzel and good company, it was a taste of heaven, and my own personal O'zapft ist!
