Ideas for a Bayern Munich Themed Party
The simplest idea for a Bayern Munich themed football party is to just buy in plenty of good German beer and pretzels. Both have a history in Bavaria stretching back centuries, and they go perfectly together. However, be warned - pretzels can be very salty, so you develop more of a thirst, so you drink quicker! They must have been invented by a German pub landlord! If you prefer to make your own pretzels, we have a recipe, and if you're looking for something more substantial to eat, we have some more Bavarian recipe ideas below.

Food for a Bavarian Themed PartyBavarians are perhaps best known for their meat dishes, especially pork based recipes. Weißwurst - white sausage - is a local delicacy made from veal, bacon and parsley, cooked and served in a pot of hot (but not boiling) water. These sausages do not keep for long, and need to be eaten fresh, and I'm not aware of many suppliers outside Bavaria, but if you ever get a chance to sample them, it is an interesting experience, as long as you remember the rules of etiquette when eating them: the skin is not eaten, but the sausage should not be sliced. It can either be cut open lengthways and the contents eaten with a fork, or one end removed and the contents sucked out!
The other famous sausage from the region - although not strictly from Munich - is the Nürnberger Bratwurst. It is customary in many parts of Germany to eat these - and other sausages - with chips. OK, nothing unusual in that. But the Germans like chips with mayonnaise. Now that sounds a bit odd to us Brits, but having chips with salt and vinegar on sounds odd to the Germans, so give it a go - you might enjoy it!
Drink for a Bayern Munich PartyThe Bavarian region is known throughout the world for its beer. There are apparently in the region of 4,000 brands of beer produced in Bavaria alone, but we would not recommend trying to sample them all in one day, even during Bavaria's famous Oktoberfest. Germany's oldest brewery - rapidly approaching its 1,000th anniversary - is in Bavaria. As well as many famous lager-type (helles) beers, Bavaria produces excellent darker beers and Weißbier. We suggest you seek out a few different ones and have a tasting session! Among the best known is Erdinger Weissbier , which is brewed in the world's largest wheat beer brewery!
