Win Two Free Tickets To Hang With the Brauhaus Schmitz Crew At Cannstadter


Hey, speaking of Brauhaus Schmitz

The 141st annual Cannstadter Volksfest Labor Day Germano-palooza is this weekend and as is their custom, the crews from both Brauhaus Schmitz and Wursthaus Schmitz are shutting down operations for a day and all rolling up there in two big buses to hang out, relax and drink a whole lot of beer.

The bad news? That means both places are going to be closed on Sunday.

The good news? You can go with them to Cannstadter if you come up with the best caption for the above photo.

Here are the event details, straight from owner Doug Hager:

  • Bus leaves Brauhaus this Sunday at 2PM sharp
  • Bus leaves Cannstadter at 9PM
  • Free beer all day
  • Bring a little cash for food, games, rides etc.
  • Lederhosen & Dirndl strongly encouraged!

So who’s up for it? Captions go in the comments. Best one wins the free pair of seats on the bus.

  • Dan

    “Aaaaand doctor. Did we miss anyone? Oh damn, he says we missed Dr. Imhaus of the Zurich Relief Fund. We have to do the roll call again.”

    The plague which wiped out mankind as we knew it over 100 years ago can be traced back to this photograph. Doctors gather around a mysterious lunch that appeared in quarantine.

    Let it be said that there is no such thing as a free lunch!

    As you can see this hospital food hasn’t changed appearance in 15 years

  • Lorisdanto

    While the experts were examining the crime scene, looking for the missing wurst, the chubby Strohenaim was trying to hide all the evidence by rubbing his hands in his pockets and meanwhile scratching his genitals. Only Miss Froehling, who right behind him was trying to hide the wurst in Strohenaim’s darkest hole, knew who the culprit was.

    Ok before we operate I have to enter the Brahaus caption contest. You there? Ok write this down. “A man walks into the hospital. He has a carrot in his nose, a banana in his ear, and a cucumber in his other ear, and says “I dont feel well, what’s the matter with me?” The doctor says “You’re not eating properly!” ” Hahahaha! That one’s gotta be a winner!!!! Hello? Hello???
