    Oktoberfest Celebration: Online Beer Tasting

    Despite Oktoberfest being cancelled again this year, Democrats Abroad Germany has just the thing for you to celebrate: an online beer tasting!

    DA Germany will gather online on Saturday, October 30th at 7pm CEST for the 13th Annual Democrats Abroad Oktoberfest Extravaganza! Instead of meeting in our usually reserved gallery seats, we will meet online from the comforts of our home for an online beer tasting.

    Our online Oktoberfest ticket (€46) includes:

    • 5 beers 
    • 1 tasting glass
    • Professional moderation and guidance during the tasting in English from Vagabund Brauerei

    The tasting will last approximately 1-1.5 hours. The beer and glass will be sent to you prior to the event from the tasting company. These tasting packages can only be sent to addresses in Germany and EU member states. We encourage other country committees to join in on the fun, but please note that if your shipping address is outside of Germany, ticket costs are €51 (an additional €5 is added to the ticket price to account for shipping costs).

    To reserve your tickets, you must complete this registration form (click here to open the form). In order to receive the beer kits in time, you must RSVP by October 11, 2021. The tasting will be held on Zoom and we will send participants the meeting log-in information 48 hours before the event.

    **Please remember that Democrats Abroad may only accept donations from U.S. citizens.**

    An Oktoberfest Prize Draw will also take place throughout the two Oktoberfest events. Click here for more information.

    DA Saxony Thanksgiving Hike: Sächsische Schweiz

    Join us as we opt outside on Saturday, November 27, for a hike through the beautiful Sächsische Schweiz National Park. We will meet in Rathen before heading up to Basteibrücke through the picturesque sandstone mountains. After some time exploring the history and geography around Basteibrücke, we will continue through the forest to Stadt Wehlen before looping back to Rathen along the Elbe. As we hike, one of our Dresden-based members will be passing along tidbits about the history, archaeology, art history, and geology of the area!

    In total the hike will cover approximately 9 km with a steep incline [stairs] to start off the journey. We will meet at the Rathen railroad stop at 10:00 on Saturday, November 27, and then together take the ferry across the Elbe. Besides your travel to and from Rathen, you will need €2 for the ferry, a packed lunch or lunch money, and of course water! We are suggesting a donation of €10 to help support the ongoing work of DA Germany. Hikers of all ages are welcome! 

    Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

    3G rules apply.

    State Team Year End Review and Look Ahead

    You're invited to the State Team 'Year End Review and Look Ahead' to look at the successes and possibilities of the Democrats Abroad state-focussed outreach. Over the last several months, multiple teams have formed representing the interests of overseas voters from key states. We'll look back at the formation of this movement and the various activities of the different state teams. We will also strategize how to make an impact in the 2022 election cycle and win elections up and down the ballot.

    For more information, have a look at this article by one of our Ohioans Abroad volunteers.

    Join us on Slack to find out what the states are planning and find out how to get involved. If you have any questions, please write to [email protected].

    Saxony Book Club: "When Nietzsche Wept" by Irvin D. Yalom

    Join DA Saxony in Halle on December 12 at 3:00 p.m. as we discuss the novel As Nietzsche Wept by Irvin D. Yalom. 

    In 19th-century Vienna, a drama of love, fate, and will is played out amid the intellectual ferment that defined the era.

    Josef Breuer, one of the founding fathers of psychoanalysis, is at the height of his career. Friedrich Nietzsche, Europe's greatest philosopher, is on the brink of suicidal despair, unable to find a cure for the headaches and other ailments that plague him. When he agrees to treat Nietzsche with his experimental "talking cure," Breuer never expects that he, too, will find solace in their sessions. Only through facing his own inner demons can the gifted healer begin to help his patient.

    In When Nietzsche Wept, Irvin Yalom blends fact and fiction, atmosphere and suspense to unfold an unforgettable story about the redemptive power of friendship. – Goodreads.com 

    After the book discussion, we'll head over to the Halle Weihnachtsmarkt to share a Glühwein and get into the holiday spirit together.  

    All are welcome to join, even if you don't get a chance to read the book! RSVP to let us know you'll be there.
