According to the literature, Big Bear has been holding their Oktoberfest for thirty-eight years now.
Before entering, there is a line about fifty people deep. Dress warmly. It may be seventy down in the flatlands, but it will be in the fifties in the mountains. Twelve bucks a person will get you in.
Do you like oompa music, twelve dollar beers, and brats from Costco? If you answer yes, then this is the place for you.
I would love to tell you, dear reader, that I had the time of my life at the Big Bear Oktoberfest. But alas, I did not. In fact, I realized that I could go home, eat a Costco brat, drink a beer, and watch the latest episodes of Heroes without risking a DUI. And that is what we decided to do.
