Wassailfest in downtown New Braunfels, Texas

 

It's my favorite time of the year in beautiful New Braunfels, Texas

 

No, not tubing on the river

No bluebonnets either

Not Wurstfest

but Wassailfest

 

Yes, you heard me.

 

What is a Wassail you ask?

 

Wassail (Old Norse "ves heil", Old English was hál, literally 'be you healthy') is a beverage of hot mulled cider, traditionally drunk as an integral part of wassailing, a Medieval southern English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good cider apple harvest the following year. The name comes from the salute 'Waes Hail', first used as a simple greeting. The later Danish-speaking inhabitants of England seem to have turned "was hail", and the reply "drink hail", into a drinking formula adopted widely by the indigenous population of England.[1]

 

So TONIGHT and only TONIGHT meet in Downtown New Braunfels from 6-9PM there will be over 30 different tastings of Wassail.

Hope to see you there!
