  1. I take two trips each year to different festivals, I first saw Hammerschlagen at the LaCrosse Oktoberfest in Wisconsin back in the 90’s. I started to see them everywhere, and have been planning my trips these past several years based on where they are going to be! Last year, I visited two beer festivals and saw them on my trips to Corpus Christy Texas, and to Kansas City Kansas. The year before that, I saw them at a beer fest in Des Moines Iowa and the Oktoberfest Northwest in Washington. Three years ago I saw them at the Grand Rapids beerfest in Michigan and the Cleveland Oktoberfest in Ohio. The year before that I saw them at the Bavarian Hunter in Minnesota and on Soldier Field in Chicago Illinois. I heard Hammerschlagen was going to be in Colorado for the Breckenridge Oktoberfest this year, so I flew in with some friends and had a blast with Hammerschlagen. When I was at Breckenridge, someone told me Hammerschlagen was going to be at the St. Charles Missouri Oktoberfest so I planned my second trip to go there. Sure enough, the Hammerschlagen company was in Missouri, too! Anyway, I had a blast with Hammerschlagen at Breckenridge!
