Photos: Armory Oktoberfest By Brauhaus Schmitz is Not To Be Missed

Last night I covered the Armory Oktoberfest By BrauhausSchmitz (23rd Street Armory), it was AMAZING.  When Kory Aversa told me about this event last Spring, I was excited that Philadelphian’s who hadn’t been to the Hofbräuhaus München in Germany, would get to experience a beer hall of the magnitude of the 23rd Street Armory.


I didn’t think they could replicate the experience as much as they did. It really was a good time. Congrats to Doug Hager , co owner of Bauhaus Schmitz and Chef Jeremy Nolen and their crew from Bauhaus Schmitz for capturing that spirit. The festival goers were jovial from the get go, and enjoyed every minute from the time they sat down. Another spectacular detail, was the entertainment by German Hungarian Dancers and the amazing Accordian afficinado Alex Meixner.
