It's Oktoberfest....in Germany. This two week tradition of celebrating beer is something that one day I hope to attend.
Growing up in the Sates I couldn't stand beer and the way it's made here. I was told by Tim Streams (French Canadian) when I was 19 that beer is an acquired taste and that's exactly how it was for me. It wasn't until I moved to Europe and sampling some of Europe's finest that I developed a liking to beer. I still have a hard time with weak American domestic beers, but give me an Amstel Gold or any other good international beer and I am good to go.
