Could not fly to Wiesn for the Oktoberfest this year, why not have it in your backyard with your own friends. Here’s the skinny on the how and where.
The more the merrier is what beer fest is all about, beer always arrives in six packs doesn’t it. So the food needs to be simple and in plenty. Stick to the easily available but do give em those fancy german names like Hendl (Fried Chicken), Brezeln (pretzel), Knödel (potato or bread dumplings, desi batatavada), Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on a stick) and a few desi favorites and you will be ready to roll.
Trendy platters and servers are a must to make your shindig a must attend on your invitees to do list.
Beer cocktails would be a major hit with the ladies. Here are a few of our favorites.
1 1/2 oz Gin
1 oz Freshly pressed lemon juice
1 oz Honey syrup (1:1 honey and water)
3 oz beer
1 Lemon wedge for garnish
How To Make It:
Combine gin, juice and honey syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a collins glass with or without ice. Top with beer and garnish with lemon.
1 seedless watermelon (3 kgs)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup maraschino liqueur
4 12-ounce bottles white beer
How To Make It:
Blend the watermelon until liquefied. Strain out the pulp, saving only the juice (makes about six cups of juice). Stir in the sugar for two minutes or until dissolved. Refrigerate. Gently stir in the the maraschino liqueur and beer.
For that edge serve it in rustic mason jars.

Here’s a list of the ultimate beers that are available off the shelves in India.
1) Stella Artois
This six-century-old Belgian brew comes with a whole set of pouring rituals – and a chalice – but the light, full-bodied taste is worth it. Nobody does it quite like the Belgians.
The creamy Belgian wheat beer hits a home run with its hints of orange peel, coriander and spice.
Clean and crisp, this dry beer is manufactured with yeast, ingredients and technology that all live up to impossibly high Japanese standards – naturally.
With a kickback vibe from its home country, this Aussie lager is full-bodied, malty and eminently drinkable.
The toasted maltiness and mild fruitiness of this pale gold lager make it a staple at boys’ nights.
6) Leffe Blond
The light Belgian beer gets its sunny hue from pale malt. Perfect as an aperitif, it’s smooth and fruity, with an aftertaste of bitter oranges.
7) Kingfisher Ultra
It’s never just about the product when it comes to Kingfisher – it’s a lifestyle choice. And this light, refreshing beverage is a choice we can get behind.
Crisp, clean and dry, this Italian lager, like Mama’s recipe for bolognaise sauce, is still brewed as it was back in 1963.
Beyond its fresh, light taste, the single best reason to drink Bud is to transport you back to those good old college days.
10) Schneider Weisse
Full-bodied, slightly fruity with a mild bitter aftertaste – it’s the perfect way to wash down all that bratwurst.
11) Corona Extra
Even if she’s the only one drinking it, your cooler isn’t complete without this Mexican export. Don’t forget the lime.
12) London Pride
Smooth, creamy, full-bodied with just the right amount of bitter, this British dark amber ale goes down easy.
13) San Miguel Pale Pilsen
The light golden brew, with a distinctive hoppy character, san Miguel pairs well with Spanish food, despite its Filipino origins.
The Danish company’s flagship brew, the Pilsner is a pleasing mix of bitter and sweet – a combination Liverpool fans will understand well.
We gave you the lowdown, now it’s your time to rock and roll….Have funtastic beer fest this October!!!!
