Easy Tiger

Easy Tiger’s Oktoberfest celebrations in Austin, Texas have been in full swing, and this year they’re celebrating on September 21 – 25. They’ve got a duck and pork sausages, apple strudel, Bavarian pretzels, and plenty of beer. 


For Oktoberfest here, Cosmic does the beer and the food truck Leroy & Lewis does the sausages. It’s a little bit more low-key, but the selection of drinks and food is great. A celebration not quite as authentically German as some of the other places, but so enjoyable.

Yes, this restaurant in Austin is technically an Irish pub, but that doesn’t mean they don’t join in on the Oktoberfest fun. Here you’ll find lots of classic German foods and some British ones. They’ve also got a great selection of imported German beers — drink like you’re overseas!
