Oktoberfest is the longest running beer and traveling fair held annually in Germany. This popular festival is celebrated worldwide with German-inspired food, activities and lots of beer. This folk festival runs for about 18 days from September to October. The celebrations have been going strong for 206 years, starting in 1810. Oktoberfest is a very important part of Bavarian culture.

I just love the idea of adding beer to a mac and cheese! It sounds lovely and a cold beer to go with it would be perfect!
