Oktoberfest History Page
With the official cancellation of the 2021 Oktoberfest, our illustrious crew has decided to press on regardless. Instead of travelling to far away lands, they have decided (in the spirit of Animal House), a road trip is in order. Dubbed The Brood X Bier Immersion Tour 2021, they will pile in a 1984 Dodge Caravan and travel to:
A courtesy visit will also be paid to Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas.
Final planning is under way! Stay tuned to the blog for the latest details.
Our European contingent has decided to tour the land of Bier, launching the Oktoberfest 2021 Comfort Tour. A relaxed and civilized trip to Kassel, Bamberg, Nuremberg and of course Munich.
Every two years, my friends and I visit Bavaria, Munich to be exact, to experience the largest beer festival in the world, Oktoberfest. We have been at this since 1993, and it gets better every time! Upon arrival, we will follow the standard plan to meet up at the Hofbrauhaus, and then head out to the Oktoberfest grounds. We then spend the next 5-7 days drinking, singing, eating, and riding around in trains.
This website is meant to capture our trips, and provide context for how we got to this sorry state.
Our group ranges between 5 and 17 Oktoberfesters. We arrive from all around the world, longtime friends, and new friends. It doesn't matter in Munich, as there is always room at the table. Unless it is Stammtisch, of course.
