    Everyday Drinkers Podcast 31: Oktoberfest

    As of September 19th, a significant yearly event has started: Oktoberfest.

    Do you like dark and cloudy beer which is said to taste awful? Well, that was the concept of a Pilsner before the 1940’s. Pilsner is a Bohemian style beer, an area of the world which has changed over time and taken on new names, currently it’s known as the Czech Republic.
