Der Pschorr

That breathes the spirit of Joseph Pschorr, who set new standards in the art of brewery. He, for example, invented the first method of cooling beer two hundred years ago. In the winter he had long pieces of ice cut from the Isar River, and stored beer on top of it in deep vaults. His name still is an obligation for us today

The 16-day-long festival was declared open with the tapping of the first keg of Oktoberfest beer by the Lord Mayor of Munich, Christian Ude.
Oktoberfest, the world's biggest beer festival, was first held in October of 1810 to celebrate the royal wedding of Crown Prince Ludwig, later King Ludwig I, to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen.
Beer is the major source of income at Oktoberfest. In 2012, visitors drank 6.9million 'mass' the one liter beer mugs and ate 116 oxen
