Ich liebe bier und Männer in kurzen Lederhosen!

Translation:  I love beer and men in short leather pants.

Oktoberfest is great!!!   But did you know that Oktoberfest is actually held in September?  According to various web searches (if it’s on the internet, it must be true), before refrigeration the Germans traditionally made their beer in October, after the harvest was complete.   So, in September they held a big party to drink up the remainder of the previous year’s supply.

Tonight, BuenaVintage is bringing you a few vintage German items to help you celebrate Oktoberfest with a bit of authenticity.   How about real vintage Lederhosen?   Or a fabulous green wool felt alpine hat, complete with feather?  For you and your friends, we have a set of six ceramic half-liter German beer mugs straight from the 1960s!

Glueck und Gesundheit!

(happiness and health)

  1. Good job Mary!!! Looks great. I was going to ask you to look for the “cookbook” , but it is now out of my price range. We were looking for it a few years ago at Greenmeade. Shoulda kept looking for that signed copy. Oh well!
