Alright Boston, what has beer, brats and baked pretzels all over?

Yes, it's Oktoberfest. Aka the best 16 days of the year where you get to rejoice your true (or honorary) German heritage and over indulge in sausage, schnitzel and sauerkraut, if you haven't already been doing so all year long.

Do Oktoberfest right this year at the legendary Jacob Wirth German Restaurant. This old school spot has been serving up brats and lagers longer than that half eaten sandwich has been in your fridge. Yeah, it's been THAT long. Jacob Wirth's has been around and serving Boston the best Bavarian food since 1868, so actually it's been around since before your fridge was even invented. Whoa.

Filled to the brim with German faves such as Saurbraten and Weisswurst, and even some American classics like burgers and mac and cheese, there's something for every Deutsche and non-Deutsche man alike to enjoy, including the most important thing: beer. With more than eight different German beers and way more than 30 (we got tired of counting) different kinds of beers in total, you'll be sure to have a good time. Plus there will be Oompah bands Saturday September 28th, October 5th and October 19th at 8:00pm to really get the Oktoberfest celebrations in gear. You know you love a little Oompah.

Mosey into Beantown's Bavarian paradise, have a slice of 'strudel and celebrate Oktoberfest in true German fashion. But please, leave your lederhosen at home.
