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!
