Another one of the never ending festivities at the Mountain Brauhaus is our Bauernball, a dance celebrated throughout the fall consisting of live music by a famed German/American band, ample German specialties including; schnitzel, bratwurst, sauerbraten among countless others, flowing German beer and wines, fun is sure to be had by all. At the start of the night patrons will notice the dance floor adorned with various colored ribbons hanging candies tempting those as they pass. The idea of the game is to successfully take a candy without the “sheriff” catching you in the act.
Back in the medieval times of Germany, Bauernball originated as a peasant’s ball, a rustic dance, typical of the Tyrol region in Austria. It was a German social event, where attendees would come dressed in costumes representing the various different German speaking countries. Each year a game was played while dancing to help allow all those involved to forget about the realities of everyday live and enjoy the night for what it is. Come join us at the Mountain Brauhaus for a modern twist on an age old good time.

Schlachtfest is a one of a kind experience that is sure to be fun for the whole family and a one for the scrapbook. Celebrated four times annually throughout the fall at the Mountain Brauhaus in Round Top, NY; festivities include live German/American music by a renowned German band, authentic German/American cuisine, abundant German beer on tap, topped with a traditional Schlachtfest celebration parade lead by our very own Master of Ceremonies.
A Schlachtfest is a traditional German celebration going back thousands of years, celebrating the pig, as pork is traditionally a staple in the German diet. Each fall townspeople would harvest their pigs and process them into various roasts, sausages, soups and other delicacies making sure to utilize the entire pig without waste. Schlachtfest is a way for the German people to praise and celebrate the pig and all that is has done and provided for them throughout the year.
Today we celebrate Schlachtfest at the Crystal Brook Resort and Mountain Brauhaus to enjoy great food and drink as well as continuing a great cultural tradition. The evening starts with a traditional Schlachtfest dinner including, Metzel soup, Sultze (headcheese), Cucumber Salad, Fresh Ham, Bratwurst, Blutwurst, Liverwurst, Hox, boiled potatoes, dumplings, sauerkraut, finished off with our famous Napoleon for dessert. After the traditional meal is over the festivities continue, dance, have fun, and be a part of an authentic ceremonial Schlachtfest parade. Following the parade, the pig is then raffled off for you to take home a piece of pork to enjoy with your family. This is sure to be a night that you’ll never forget!

Maifest got its origins back in tenth century Germany, when villagers and townspeople would erect a pole in the local village square and decorate it with sausages, cakes and multicolored ribbons to celebrate nature’s bright reawakening after winter’s cold darkness. People would dance around the Maypole, believing that it would bring good luck and wealth to those who partook in the festivities. However modern day celebrations in Germany and Austria are very similar to those at the Mountain Brauhaus in Round Top, NY where the coming of spring is celebrated amongst friends.
Americans have been enjoying the famed German Oktoberfest celebrations for decades, but luckily you don’t have to wait for fall to enjoy a fun German celebration.
Come join in the festivities of Maifest, a traditional German celebration of the arrival of spring in an authentic German atmosphere like no other in North America. At The Mountain Brauhaus’s Maifest the great German-American food is plentiful and the beer and wine flow freely. Of course what would a German celebration be without live German music, provided annually by one of the best German bands in the Northeast, and dancing entertainment by The Mountain Brauhaus Schuhplatter Verein.
