Oktoberfest Research Team Members
Our intrepid group of Research Team Members enjoying the 2005 Oktoberfest stopped by the Hofbräuhaus to prep for the Wies'n and compare a few notes from the field manual. (From left) "Einfahrt", "Chugger", and "Barleyman". More news from the field available on their blog.
Research Team Member Elmer Eddy (r-Maß raised)
Field Research Team Member David Vorp handles a couple of Maß that he just negotiated with a "Buy One, Get One Free" coupon from the book he holds in front. Adds a little more flavor to an afternoon at Seehaus beer garden in the Englischer Garten. His wife Allison took the photo.

Field Report from Kurt Vandenboogaard- April 2005 visit
We also visited Viktualien Markt and the Hofbräu
Keller, twice. The H-B Keller has a 5 Euro menu inside the Stammtisch
area, next to the main restaurant, were the locals play cards. We also
sat at a cafe on Leopold Strasse in front of the Paulaner Wirthaus to
drink Paulaner while watching the BMW's.

LtoR: John Fote, Jr., Chris Fote, Eliska Jezkova, Larry Hawthorne, David Fabish. (Not shown is Teresa Fabish, David's wife who took the picture.) The Fotes are from Medford, NJ. The Fabishes from Ann Arbor, MI. John and David proudly display their copies of the 4th Edition of The BDG2M.
Pub Crawls: Check out "Steve's Pub Crawls". Steve Dulieu, a long-time research associate, has provided us his own personal experiences in weaving (good word) a few small neighborhood pubs into an itinerary covering some of the best beer halls and beer gardens listed in The Beer Drinkeer's Guide to Munich. When he's not a Research Team Member, Steve is an operational manager with London Transport who knows the importance of public transportation in getting to and from the best watering holes without risking life and limb to do it. Check out Steve's picks. They augment the BDG2M rather well.
