In Germany, the Oktoberfest celebrations actually start in mid-September, so what better time than now to usher in this delicious season where sausages and suds reign supreme…live from Bar Passe!

Travis Peters, Gary Hickey, Mat Cable, Matt Russell, Ben Forbes, Sherwood Alger, Kade Mislinski & Devon Sanner

Our celebrity co-host was one of our brethren in the beer-sphere, Sherwood Alger of Hensley Beverage Company. Sherwood hoisted a stein of Spaten Oktoberfest with us while sharing some fun facts about Old World brews. We also welcomed Devon Sanner of the Carriage House and Gary Hickey of Charro Steak, two of the chefs behind the Gastronomic Union of Tucson, who discussed the group’s plans for a Downtown Whole Hog Block Party. And many of the other chefs involved with the event turned out for this broadcast!

Bar Passe’s local pork bratwurst made with spent grain from Dragoon Brewing Company!

Bar Passe proprietor Kade Mislinski sat down with us as well to talk about his Old World suds and how beautifully they pair with his sausages. We were treated to his Oktoberfest special that featured a local pork bratwurst, German potato salad, and a draft Oktoberfest beer. Prost!
