Owen Morris in Fat City of Kansas City’s Pitch Weekly says something interesting about Irish and German beer in reference to this weekend’s big German festival thingy at Crown Center.
Crown Center has learned from the mistake of the Irish Festival that didn’t have any authentic beer. For this event, it got Warsteiner as a host.
Although I am a loyal Guinness drinker, like any self-respecting native Dublin man or woman, I am also on the record as an avowed fan of Boulevard Beers, in particular their Pale Ale and their Wheat.
But anyway, is Crown Center itself now really choosing beers for its various ethnic festivals?
You can of course argue authenticity until the cows come home, and I just might another day. But right now my new Irish home is full of cows.
And for the record, in case the Germans take offence, I also like Warsteiner. Because I’m such a positive guy.
You’ll probably find a lot of Irish people at Oktoberfest in Crown Center, not least because so many Irish in Kansas City are also German. Listen to them clap at any Irish music show and you’ll know what I mean.
