Becktoberfest returns to Reinbeck

After a two year hiatus the Becktoberfest fall celebration has returned to Broad Street in Reinbeck. Over 100 festivalgoers made their way to downtown Reinbeck on Oct. 2 for live music, the Reinbeck Farmer’s Market and German food and drink. The Hungry Charlies food truck offered a menu that included schweinsbraten, schnitzel, brats and Bavarian pretzels, while the Dig Inn bar had a rotating selection of German style beers on tap.
