    The first Oktoberfest, via the Warsteiner site. (https://warsteiner.com/partner-brands/king-ludwig-i-and-the-oktoberfest/)

     

    Frauleins fair in their colorful dirndls, the sounds of an oompah band, and kegs overflowing with foamy brews can only mean one thing 'tis time of year: Oktoberfest! If you live in the States, chances are an Oktoberfest will be coming to your area within the next few weeks. If you live in Germany, you are a lucky devil indeed--for you get to enjoy the largest Oktoberfest in the very place it originated--Munich.

     

    Oktoberfest can be traced back to 1810, when Germany's Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) married Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Munich's citizens were invited to celebrate the union of the royal couple. There were horse races--and no doubt dancing and drinking. The festivities were such a hit that the local folks that the tradition was repeated the following year--giving rise to Oktoberfest. Soon, local breweries and food vendors would bring their goods to the event.

    It was this spirit of Oktoberfest (and frankly, a love for beer myself) that inspired my Authentic Beer Stein. This is a period-accurate beer stein that holds 30 fluid ounces of your favorite beer--making it regulation size for Oktoberfest and other beer-cheering gatherings. Best of all, it's made of pure, solid copper and hot-tinned on the inside right here in the USA at our American factory. We like to think it will turn any choice of beer into an all-American experience!
