Stuttgart's beerfest - Always worth a trip Sep 29, 2013
While living in the area I made it to this fest (the spring and fall version) a couple of times. Convenient train connections make this a great experience. I personally don't like driving to it, although parking is plentiful. Let's face it though. You'll have a beer or two, so let's just take public transportation. ;)

All in all. It's like any other beer fest in Germany. It has rides, and food, and drink. BUT it has OUTSTANDING food and is just more favorable to fests like Oktoberfest, which I will say over and over again, is completely overrated.

At this fest you still have a chance to get inside a tent when you arrive reasonable early (before 6:00pm), and reserving a table for a group of your friends is not impossible. It is however still preferable to plan ahead if you do show up with a group.

Here's are some of the links that will get you reservations:

I've been to both and they are both good choices. You'll get a wristband to get in and out of the tent, plus however many beers and chickens you paid for in advance. A table usually seats about 10 people.

The atmosphere still gets pretty crazy, so I wouldn't bring small children in the later hours of the day, or just keep them outside the tents. The food options outside are better, IMO. ;)
