says best of the fest

October 6th, 2008

I could Google it, but that just kills a conversation.  What’s the significance of the blue and white checkered pattern with Oktoberfest?  The Surly can just looks like a picnic tablecloth, but I became interested when I saw the pattern on a Schell’s Oktoberfest label.  Anybody?

 And for the record, this one is great.  Having this beer at this time of year makes me proud to be fractionally German.
