Come the end of September and beginning of October each year, I always use it as an excuse to experience good German food and beer in honor or Oktoberfest.
This year was no different. But I took it a step further by traveling to Villa General Belgrano in Argentina for their annual Oktoberfest, one of the best in the world. In fact, it is technically the 3rd largest in the world.
Before heading to the festival, I started it off with some home cookin':
|2 lb bratwurst with sautéed onions, drizzle of BBQ sauce on a whole wheat loaf of bread.|
Once in Villa General Belgrano, a town with an alpine feel to it, the food was a big step up. Here are a few samples from the restaurants we visited.

As for the Oktoberfest festival in Villa General Belgrano, here's a taste of what the atmosphere was in the town and the festival:
