*Disclosure* I was invited to attend this event and partake in great food, and great fun, in exchange for my honest review*
October. It’s my favorite month. The leaves, the food and the festivities. I hold a very special place in my heart for Oktoberfest. The German Festival reminds me of my Poppa, and all the delicious German food my Nana would prepare.
Dave and I were invited to attend Oktoberfest at Foxwoods® Resort Casino, and it did not disappoint! We joined a group of friends and fellow bloggers to sample delicious beers, great food, and enjoy a night filled with fun!
- Hanssens: Oude Gueuze (Belgium)
- Kasteel: Rouge (Belgium)
- Aecht Schlenkerla: Marzen Rauchbier (Germany)
- La Trappe: Quad (The Netherlands)
- Schloss Eggenberg: Samichlaus (Austria)
Dave and I have very different taste in beers, but we both enjoyed the Quad. I also LOVED the Rouge, and we learned that we are not really big fans of sour beers. It was interesting to move outside of my beer comfort zone (I’m a stout girl!) and try some new styles! During the tasting, we also enjoyed traditional pretzels (the size of your head!)
After the tasting we had time to explore the casino, and do a little shopping. Of course we spent more time than I’d like to admit in the toy and candy stores…
Next up? BOWLING! If you’ve never visited High Rollers Luxury Lanes & Lounge, I suggest you do ASAP! It is fantastic! Dave and I have bowled at High Rollers before and it is one of our favorite date night spots! High Rollers features 20 PBA approved lanes including 6 VIP lanes with food and beverage service! (It’s a great place for a date, night out with friends, or even a larger event!) While none of us were blowing anyone away with our skills (Hey, we did just come form a beer tasting!) we all had a great time!
The chef prepared a delicious three-course meal. The first course was Char-Grilled Bratwurst with German potato salad and whole grain mustard.
The second course was Kasseler Ruppchen. A Smoked Pork Loin, with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes
Dave and I had an incredible night at Foxwoods Resort Casino! In all our visits to Foxwoods, we are never disappointed, and always excited about planning our next date night!
Oktoberfest continues through the end of October.
