Have you ever tried making your own kraut? Might be an interesting try. Otherwise supremely jealous of the tap list  :D

I have not. Couple of posts have intrigued me to consider it...just haven't done it as of yet.

Ken, the beer and food menu looks fantastic. If we lived closer I'd crash the party ! You just need some German potato salad - mine is pretty damn good !

Sounds great! My wife and I go to the German American Fest in Oregon, OH every year at the end of August. More German beers than the Oktoberfest in Germany and the best German food, music, dancing, and rock throwing.

I have gotten the kraut in a mason jar thing down pretty well.  It take about 3 months or so for it to get really good and sour.  The first week can be very messy, if your not careful.  After that just seal the jars and let it sit in a cool dry place for a few months.
