Oktoberfest is Here, Let the Shit Show Begin
Munich’s annual Oktoberfest kicks off today. It’s the 182nd year the 16-day beer festival will take place. What started off as a commemoration to a royal wedding is now an excuse to drink profusely for two weeks straight with millions of German locals and tourists from around the world. This year an influx of Muslim refugees may put a strain on the city, but government officials say they will have as much police presence as past years. For those attending, they can expect an assortment of beer tents where 6 million liters of beer will be served, carnival rides, and brezeln and wurst (pretzels and sausages) amongst other German foods. Wherever you are, grab your steins and get to drinking! Prost!
