Steins Fly Off Shelves

October 7, 2013

MINSTER — Almost as common as the German Alpine hats, which were sported by dozens of Minster Oktoberfest-goers this weekend in downtown Minster, were the German steins.

There were tents of vendors selling German-themed memorabilia and souvenirs at Oktoberfest, and one of them was a family-owned booth with shelves upon shelves stacked with the steins. Its owners, siblings John, Bob, Jim and Ron Sippel and Margaret Walker, started the business in their hometown, Vandalia, in 1977. John Sippel is the founder of the Oktoberfest there.
