Sponsored by Spaten Beer, the original Munich Oktoberfestbier.
It’s a fact – Munich’s famous fest kicks off in September and ends typically on the first Sunday in October. This year, the first keg will be tapped on Saturday, Sept. 19th – the same day as Philly Oktoberfest.
More Oktoberfest facts:
* The event marks the marriage of King Ludwig I to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810.
* Six million people attend the festival each year – the world’s biggest festival of any kind.
* Only beer from Munich’s six breweries is poured: Lowenbrau, Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr, Hofbrau, Paulaner, Augustiner.
Philly Oktoberfest won’t be as crowded as Munich’s, but we’ll pour more varieties and have just as much so fun. So…
Grab your lederhosen, pull on your dirndls!
