Celebrate Oktoberfest! Prost!

Let the Oktoberfest celebrations begin! 🍻

Oktoberfest is a huge beer festival in Bavaria, with traditional Bavarian food, music and, of course, beer!

This incredible celebration of all things Bavarian is world-famous and this year it is the 186th Oktoberfest! The first Oktoberfest was held to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen, and was originally only a horse race with no particular focus on beer. Now, more than 6 million people attend Oktoberfest with the total amount of beer drunk filling more than three Olympic-sized swimming pools!

It all starts with a gun salute on the first Saturday, followed by the mayor of Munich tapping the first beer keg, with the cry “O’zapft is’!”. This literally means “it is tapped!” in the Bavarian dialect. The oompah bands at Oktoberfest are famous for their unusual regional brass instruments, including the Alpenhorn, which was traditionally used as a way to calm down anxious cows around milking times in the Swiss Alps.

But you won’t have to travel too far to experience this Bavarian celebration! We’ve brought the food, music & beer right to your doorstep…
