Beer & Butter Roasted Vegetables #Weekend Bites

Yum

Our pool club has a beautiful grove area by a lake. An old tradition of having an Octoberfest was resurrected this year. We have been having a dry and mild Autumn so the event had gorgeous weather. Some families brought desserts and others were designated to bring side dishes. Many types of German sausages were provided.

I wanted to keep with the German theme so I roasted vegetables that Germans eat in the Fall: brussel sprouts, onions, parsnips and carrots with butter and beer. They came out terrific.. hardly any leftovers.
