This years Oktoberfest kicked off just the other day, the 19th to be more specific. Unfortunately, I have yet to make it there but I wouldn’t be a true beer lover if I didn’t dream about making the journey. I will make it there some day!!
I was just reading up on it and in 2007, over 6.2 million people visited the festival making it the largest fair in the world. Nearly 7,000,000 liters were consumed in 2007. Yes, that isn’t a typo…almost seven million liters. Apparently the price of beer has gone up a bit this year. Take your pick between Augustiner, Paulaner, Spaten-Franziskaner, Schottenhammel, Löwenbräu, Hacker-Pschorr and Hofbräu with a Maß (1L) setting you back between €8.30 – €8.60.
Ohh, I wish I were there!!!
Mers found some great photos from this years festival. Head over to The Big Picture to see them.
