It’s like Oktoberfest in May! The historic Waldmann in St. Easy celebrates the arrival of spring with a host of activities for their inaugural Maifest, everything from piles of pretzels to German volkmusic and a Bavarian dance group—and most importantly the new beer. Starting with the tapping right at 12:15, Waldmann will serve up its cask-dispensed Maibock and barrel-aged Imperial Berliner, an unfiltered, deep golden, malty German style Maibock. Saturday, May 18th, Noon. $5.Art Humes
