In 1810 some bier loving German royalty decided to get married (Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Theresia of Bavaria if you really must know). It was their very successful 16 day celebration starting in late September and continuing on through October that later became the annual event known as Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany.
Beer drinking Americans tend to celebrate Octoberfest only when prompted by marketing & advertising by big-label bottlers… and we tend to prefer the “oCtoberfest” spelling variation.
The 2016 festival begins September 17th and goes until October 3rd. Check out some Oktoberfest Biers you can buy here in the U.S. for your own tent party. Don’t forget the big-ass pretzels.
