Oktoberfest all started in 1810 in Munich (Bavaria), Germany, and marked the wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig and Queen Theresia. This celebration still runs in Munich from mid-September to the beginning of October, and it’s still a very important part of Bavarian culture.
Oktoberfest beers are typically brewed in March, known as Marzen Oktoberfest. They are full-bodied, rich and toasty, with a dark copper-color and a mild hop profile.
It’s time to bring out the delicious bratwurst and apple strudel and celebrate Oktoberfest! If you like your beer, this celebration is definitely for you.
