August Break: Dult Time Again

I’m on an August Break from my regular blogging schedule. Here’s today’s picture.

It’s Dult time again in Regensburg. I previously posted about Dult here.  It’s a twice a year beer festival that happens here in Regensburg, once in May and once around August.    There are rides.

Tasty food.

Beer.

Friendly beer tent staff.

Hen parties.  Americans would call these bachelorette parties.  I saw no less than six separate hen parties this weekend.  They’re kind of hard to miss.  Often, they wear matching t-shirts.

…and this photograph includes my favorite part of Dult. 

No, not the ferris wheel.

No, not the cute girls in Dirndls.

Look to the right… see the Mini-Pfannkuchen stand?

Yeah.  These.

In butter and powdered sugar.  So, SO delicious.

Have you ever had mini-Pfannkuchen?  What’s your favorite part of a beer festival?

MaiDult is here! (Have some beer…)

One of the great things about living in Germany is that there are always beer festivals.  You don’t have to wait for Oktoberfest in Munich to get your beerfest on.   For example, Regensburg has its own festival twice a year called Dult.  In May, it’s Maidult. In the fall, it’s Herbstdult.  It has all the same things you’d find at Oktoberfest – beer, lederhosen and dirndls, live music, giant pretzels, and rides-  minus the enormous flood of tourists.

Right now, it’s Maidult.  This weekend is the last weekend of Dult, running until the evening of Sunday the 26th.   There will be fireworks at the closing, probably around 10pm since it’s not fully dark by 9.

At Dult, we have beer:
