Bier Himmel (Jimmy Horzen and German Festbiers)

Barry and Abigail discuss Oktoberfest ist Wunderbar by Jimmy Horzen and sample three German festbiers: Weihenstephaner Festbier from Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan, Oktoberfest Märzen from Hacker-Pschorr, and Oktoberfest Märzen / Original Münchner Märzen from Paulaner Brauerei.

Read the Untappd article that inspired Barry’s beer choices for this episode, including information on the “big six” Munich breweries that can use the Oktoberfest label on their beers.

Schnitzelbank is a cumulative song that reminded Abigail of Children Go Where I Send Thee (the version she is most familiar with is by Natalie Merchant).
