177th Tapping

This year marks the 177th tapping of the first barrel of beer celebrating Oktoberfest in Munich. What better way to celebrate than have the party last for weeks - this year September 18 - October 4.

Hofbräuhaus prides itself in being the most famous beer hall in the world. You can expect oompah bands, waitresses in traditional "Dirndls", homebrew beer in one-liter steins, and hearty Bavarian food such as veal sausage with sweet mustard, crackling pork roast and pretzels.

You can join in the celebrations and make yourself some hot baked pretzels. For My Hot Baked Pretzel Recipe.
