Bratwursts, schnitzel, sauerkraut and crème puffs: Oktoberfest is not complete without its food. Feed the beast after the Chicken Dance with some beer cheese pretzels and apple strudel. It’s virtually impossible to pass up any of Zinzinnati’s vendors while enjoying your favorite draft – and you haven’t properly enjoyed Oktoberfest until you’ve had a face full of crème puff (with beer in hand, for those of legal drinking age).
Local vendors will line the streets downtown this weekend. To list a few, be sure to have dessert before dinner with Heidi’s Strudel selection, and when you’re ready for some sausage, check out Schumacher’s for their beer-battered Bratwurst. Enjoy Austrian appetizers from Alpine Almonds while wetting your whistle with Wasteiner. The festivities never come to an end with the wide selection of Bavarian delicacies, so don’t forget to stop by the Strauss Haus or Das Kolpinghaus to fill your appetite.
