AustOberfest Is Around The Corner!

On September 30th the Austin Saengerrunde will honor the German heritage of central Texas with its fifth annual AustOberfest celebration.

Called the "Best New Food Event" by Austin Monthly Magazine and one of the "Top 10 Up & Coming Oktoberfests in the Country" by, it features beer, bowling, German-style sausages, and live entertainment.

Highlights include:

Meyer's Elgin Sausage

In the late 1800s, Henry Meyer came to the United States from Germany. He brought his recipe for smoked sausage, and around 1915, he shared how to make it with his son R.G. It quickly became a hit with R.G's friends, and eventually they convinced him to open Meyer's Elgin Sausage. Today, the company is run by the family's fourth generation, and the sausages are made with a special blend of spices.

Altstadt Brewery

Located in Fredericksburg, Texas, Altstadt is a world-class brewery where a German brewmaster uses Germany's time-honored traditions to craft smooth beers. Its website states that it is one of the few breweries that still follows the original German Purity Laws of 1516. That means only four basic ingredients can be used to produce quality beer: water, hops, malt, and yeast.

Brave Combo

For the past thirty years, this Denton, Texas-based band has entertained audiences with polka, salsa, the blues, and so much more. They're known as one of America's premier dance bands and have won two Grammy Awards.
