Craft Beers for your Oktoberfest celebrations and fall festivals.

HISTORY

Oktoberfest began on October 12, 1810, when Crown Prince Ludwig got married to Princess Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen. These royals strayed from bougie tradition and turned the wedding into a public event, inviting the people of Munich to come to the fields in front of the city gates and celebrate the union.

The celebration lasted for days; free food and beer flowed through the city. In the beginning, this beer was darker and maltier, closer to a Munich dunkel. The celebration concluded with a horse race.

Seeing as the royal family couldn’t celebrate a wedding every year on October 12, it was the annual horse race that promoted the tradition of Oktoberfest. In modern Munch, this tradition has been drunk under the table.
