Schlachtfest: Slaughter of the Pig

Tucked away in the woods near my home is a German commune. They hold four events a year. The final event is Schlachfest: the pig roast.

You park in a field then hike down a quarter mile path to a rustic lodge. Here they have authentic German food and music, served bier hall style. 

Picnic benches in the woods and German beer. With a 30 piece band ​​



I got a local Oktoberfest beer

They have a full Menu of authentic German food. Schlacht means slaughter of the pigs. Or pig roast. My wife gets the pork roast and I get the Schlachtplatte

Only one thing left to wash down all that delicious food and beer
