Oktoberfest; the world’s largest beer festival is beginning this weekend. I know it’s the 3rd week of September, but most of the festival actually takes place this month. The festival has become popular and is celebrated all around the world, but if you get a chance to head to the birth place of it all you won’t be disappointed (if you are attending the festival this year – you can’t see me right now, but I am green with envy). Oktoberfest comes but once a year in Munich, Germany – it is in fact one of the cities largest and most profitable tourist attractions. The 16 day party attracts over 6 million people every year who consume around 1.5 million gallons of beer. Sound like a good time? Trust me, it is.
