"7.1 million litres of beer..."

Munich Oktoberfest kicks off Saturday and last year revelers drank copious amounts of "bier"!  Wow!

There are very few times during the year when one can get away with wearing leather shorts and stumbling about with a litre stein of beer. The strictures of modern society are such that if you were to attempt that on an idle Tuesday in April, you would probably receive a stern talking to, if not a straight-jacket. However, for about two weeks a year, this behaviour is just fine. Such is the magic of Oktoberfest.

How can you not LOVE a sixteen day celebration of beer!

SIGIS will be Oktoberfest blogging through the duration.  Order your gear now.  I've taken my dirndl out of storage! (THAT ought to get Mr. SIGIS home from Iowa!)

7.1 million litres of beer on the wall, 7.1 million litres of beer. Take one down and pass it around... 7 million, nine hundred, ninety-nine thousand, nine hundred, ninety-nine litres of beer on the wall...
