"O'zapft is!" (VIDEO ADDED)

“O’zapft is”

The keg is tapped and Oktoberfest Munich is underway!

A complete guide is here and the official website is here.

For the next 17 days over 6 million people will participate in Munch's grand festival of beer.  Oh, there's a little more to it than that, but who are you kidding?  The reason one attends Oktoberfest is for the beer, the atmosphere, and fun.

The Washington Post:

Last year’s visitors consumed some 7.1 million 2-pint (1-liter) mugs of beer. This year a mug, called “Mass” in German, tipped the €9 mark, selling at €9.20 ($12.66).

Of course, for your $12.66, that's a lot of beer.  Not your average mug.

SIGIS is, of course, your home for Oktoberfest blogging so get your gear and be ready!
