By Chris Chen

What better way to bond with your colleagues than by celebrating Oktoberfest with great food and beers? Below are some fun food ideas for an Oktoberfest themed office lunch and/or cocktail hour

It’s Fall which calls for tons of beer festivals but the biggest one of all is happening right now (Sept 20 – Oct 5) — Oktoberfest.

Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held annually in Munch, Bavaria, Germany. The main highlights of the festival would be its traditional German cuisine, music and the Bavarian beers.

Don’t let the location stop you from celebrating. Let’s bring Oktoberfest to you. FoodtoEat can fill your catering needs and help you celebrate one of the biggest festivals in the world.

Here is a sample Oktoberfest menu to get you and your colleagues drooling:
