Today was my first experience at a German beer Festival. Many people beleive that Oktoberfest is the only beer festival however when it comes to Germans, any occasion is a reason to drink. The Starkbierfest is a small festival that is hosted all over the city by the different breweries in München.
The festival begins at lunch time with live music, both tradiontal and new songs, soft pretzels and ofcourse a lot of beer. It was safe to say that I felt quite underdressed, I didn’t realise until today how many people actually wear the traditional dirndl and lederhosen. I now know what my next purchase will have to be.
