Biergarten trip report - pics

Have you been to Biergarten in Epcot's Germany pavilion? It's an all you can eat buffet (or as they say now, all you CARE to eat) with the sorts of items you'd expect from Germany: sausages, schnitzels, roasts, cold cuts, potatoes, and yes, pretzels.

You can wash all that down with a liter of beer if you can handle it, served up in an authentically-heavy Oktoberfest-style glass mug.

The music includes oompah and polka numbers, as well as bell-ringing and the almost mournful Alpenhorn, those superlong horns you might associate with commercials for Riccola throat lozenges.

This is the one of the last restaurants to fill up, and reservations can be had here usually even for same-day (try THAT with most restaurants in Epcot!)
