Oktoberfests around the Globe
Wednesday 23 September 2009
Oktoberfest, the most famous beer festival in the world, kicked off its 176th season in Munich on Saturday
The wildly popular beer drinking bonanza draws millions of lager lovers from across the planet for sixteen days of fun, festivities and hangovers. But don’t think you have to go to Germany to enjoy Oktoberfest. The world’s biggest beer fest has spawned copycat events all over the world. And if you’ve been caught on the hop because you thought the clue was in the title and the Oktoberfest actually started in October, don’t worry, we have a good selection that actually take place next month
So don your dirndl, lace up your lederhosen and let us pull you a pint with ten of the best.
