Save on airfare to Munich and instead host an Oktoberfest in your apartment. The first thing you need on hand is, of course, beer. You can purchase a German-style lager from your local liquor store, or you can pick up a growler from a nearby brewery. You can also ask guests to bring a six-pack of their favorite selections to have a fun tasting! Secondly, a menu of German plates is a must.

To this day, communities replicate this feeling of warmth, graciousness, and togetherness by hosting elaborate meals. A fall harvest can also be enjoyed in your Lincoln apartment! Ask friends to bring a dish that is special to them and come together for a delicious potluck that welcomes the season.
