Gemütlichkeit: (gu-moot-lish-kite)

This word has a very broad  meaning. It is an atmosphere of comfort, peace, and acceptance, and it is what Oktoberfest is all about.

from the Alpine VIllage Center we found this delightful glossary of words and phrases to enjoy our Havre de Grace’s 3rd annual OKTOBERFEST, Oct 14, 2017 from noon – 7pm  and the 5th Annual American Legion OKTOBERFEST same day from 9am – 3pm! Of course, here at Bahoukas Beer MuZeum we have the perfect collectibles to bring a little Oktoberfest home. Here’s a link to all the October Events in Havre de Grace.

If you want to carry your very own beer stein to the Oktoberfest, visit us at Bahoukas Beer MuZeum…. we have a pretty nice selection to choose from…
