Rummel Haus Open House - The historic Rummel Haus, on the Round Top Family Library property, has been lovingly restored thanks to donations from our community and local foundations.  Come see the great work that has been done to restore this 1860's farmhouse and purpose it as an activity center for the Library's young and adult patrons and for the community.   Light refreshments will be served.   Come to Round Top and enjoy all the great German heritage celebrations that will be taking place that weekend.

The 2nd annual OktoBierFest features two main events.  For those interested in the craft bier scene, there will be craft bier tasting from 1-4PM in the hall. Breweries from throughout Texas  and other parts of the USA will be represented. There is a small admission of $10 to the tasting plus $1 per tasting ticket.

The Biergarten opens at 12 noon under the outdoor pavilion. Fresh German sausage from the pit, sauerkraut and potatoes will be available all afternoon.  Imported German  keg biers from Paulaner, one of Munich's most popular breweries, will be available.  The three different biers from Paulaner being offered are the Wies'n  bier, typically served at the Munich Oktoberfest, the Oktoberfest bier which is an amber version of the Wies'n and the Hefeweizen bier, a highly carbonated bier made from wheat with added yeast resulting in a nice head of foam.   Bierfest visitors will be able to buy the traditional drinking vessels from the brewery to enhance the taste of these internationally acclaimed biers. These biers are sold for $3 per serving.

At 1:45 the Keg tapping ceremony will take place.  A special keg of  Paulaner's Munich lager will be tapped to the fanfare  of "Ein Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit"! Tasting of this bier will also be available.  This is a gravity fed keg requiring the tapper to be hammered in with a wooden mallet, just as it was done a century ago. No CO2 required! At 2PM the German music begins. On "tap" for this year's musical entertainment are the Round Top Brass Band and the Enzian Buam (boys).  The Band will be playing traditional German brass band music and the Enzian  Buam will be entertaining you with the best yodeling and alpine music this side of the Atlantic. Entry to the Biergarten is FREE.

The Gallery at Round Top presents - TOWNSFOLK - The photographic exhibition and book record some of Round Tops history, with photography by Bernard Mendoza and stories by Marilyn Albert.  Townsfolk is a series of environmental photographic portraits and essays based on personal reflections from both those who have maintained their long family traditions with a strong emphasis on their German heritage and those more recent settlers who have not only made a considerable difference and set their own mark on the town, but have also assured its continuance.  To preview the exhibit and learn more
