Cheers with Beer on Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest, the 16 days beer fest is celebrated in Germany annually, for the honor of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig’s marriage. The vibrant fest stretches from September 19 to October 4, 2015. Let’s revive some facts and yummz.

  • It must not be surprising if I say around 2 million beer gallons is consumed by 6 million people at the fest.

  • Different tents offer different kind of beer.

  • Capacity a tent can accommodate is 10,000 people.

  • The traditional stein costs around $13 (33 Ounces).

  • People with hangover can rest on the beds arranged by the Red Cross society.

  • Best recipes offered on the fest includes:-

  1. Brezn (pretzel)

  2. Wurstl (sausages)

  3. Haxn (pork knuckle)

  4. Hendl (roasted chicken)

  5. Weisswurst (white sausage)

  6. Kaasspotzn (cheese noodles)

  7. Schweinsbraten (roasted pork)

  8. Reiberdatschi (potato pancakes)

  9. Steckerlfisch (grilled fish on stick)

  10. Knodeln (potato/bread dumplings)

  11. Obatzda (spicy cheese-butter concoction)

  12. Sauerkraut or Rotkraut (pickled red cabbage)
