It seems like yesterday that we hosted the Boise Music Festival. We've just transitioned from 100-degree heat right into Fall temperatures and that means the warm weather might just be over. So, let's have a Bier!

I was just writing about Oktoberfest at the Ste Chapelle Winery on Sunday when I saw another list of events that begin Saturday. This is when I did it and fell down the rabbit hole. I use that analogy when an innocent search turns into an abyss of clicking realizing - it happened, Alice! That's okay because I never knew that we had so many German restaurants in Boise. That brings us to our first one that celebrates one year in Boise, Das Alpenhaus Delikatessen.

Are you ready to Prost for some Biers? Let's grab a Bierkrug and wait...can you smell the Dirndl? I'm sorry that could get annoying as I try to speak German with a silly app translator. Follow me for some great beer, brats, and German pretzels!
