Oktoberfest Contest

Filed under: Germany, Language, Music — furtherglory @ 5:16 pm

Click on the link in the photo above to hear a famous German song that is sung in beer joints. I have sung this song in German, in Germany. I have also danced to this song many times.

This is to announce a contest:  Winners will win by suggesting a German drinking song traditionally sung during Oktoberfest.

It has to be a song that I like enough to elevate from a comment to an outstanding comment, that has been elevated to the level of a blog post, in it’s own right, with the names of each winner announced!


  1. Oy vey!

    • Coincidence . Tread design. I bet their non slip soles. Here we go. Someone else’s fragile sensibilities have been offended.

      Back to Oktoberfest . What the f–k is the “Hauptstrasse chicken dance?” It’s part of Oktoberfest celebration,that they have every year here in Texas at Fredericksburg . Shitload of beer and brats too.

      If they really wanted to make this a family event,they could have a “dunk the Jew in the tank” attraction. You know. Throw the ball at the target,you hit it,the comes out from under the Jew and they land in the tank of water.

      I tried going to this thing one year . Did nothing but piss me off. Too many smartass liberal college kids from UT in Austin. Some Aggies from Texas A&M showed up. That was pretty cool. Couple Aggies beat the shit out of a couple UT pussys.

      Once again,this ain’t an Oktoberfest song,but it’s always been a good beer drinking song. Willie Nelson.

      “Well I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it,cause I know just what I’m gonna do. I start to spend my money,callin everybody honey and I wind up singing the blues. There’s a lot of good doctors who tell me,I better start slowing it down,but there’s more old drunks,than their are old doctors,so I guess we better have another round”.

      The college kids just go for the beer. They don’t care about the heritage ( better be careful. Jews will probably find Oktoberfest offensive)

  2. It’s not a German song,but it’s about beer. ” whiskeys too rough,champagne costs too much and vodka puts my mouth in gear . This little refrain,should help me explain,as a matter of fact I like beer”.

    As for the beer for Oktoberfest,people can have their own Oktoberfest,without leaving home. Start with Spaten. It’s brewed in Munich. The Spaten Optimator. I had many “lost weekends” with Spaten and Bombay,when I was drinking. Spaten is one that has been around since man learned to walk upright. 1158. Warsteiner Beer. They’re a good beer. Kinda the new kid on the block (1753). You can get a 6 of their Oktoberfest at Specs for like 12 or 14 dollars . They’re brewed in Warstein. Franziskaner. They’ve been around since 1354 ( I think) . In ’29 they became part of Spaten. Franziskaner is different. The Hefe Weiss is the one to go with. Pour 2/3 of the beer in a glass. There’s barley left in the bottom of the bottle. Swirl the barley around. Pour in a circular motion when you pour in the glass. The barley will be dispersed through the beer. Shit taste good. I’m not saying some grocery stores don’t carry these beers,but here in Texas I have to go to Specs. Supermarket chains here don’t carry them. If you try the Spaten Optimator,get a Cohiba cigar to smoke with it. Here’s a whole bunch of excellent Kraut beer out there. Some is only sold in a limited time period. Spaten has a winter beer. Back when I was drinking,it came out the second week in November and was gone at the end of January .

    See. Beat the crowd. Enjoy Oktoberfest with close friends and these beers.
