What is Oktoberfest?:

The website justbeerapp.com explains what Oktoberfest is. “The first Oktoberfest was held in 1810 in Munich, Germany. It was in honor of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The festivities began on October 12, 1810, and ended on October 17 with a horse race. In the following years, the celebrations became yearly, and the festival was prolonged and moved forward into September due to the weather.”

The festival surrounds itself with German beer called Marzen (it is made for Oktoberfest and brewed in March) and German food such as various sausages along with huge Bavarian Pretzels. The first Oktoberfest beer was made by the famed brewery Paulaner. Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier traditionally is served in a large stein/glass.
