Beer Buzz: Oktoberfest

459

We can thank Munich’s King Ludwig I for our annual month of beer guzzling. It was back in 1910 that Ludwig proclaimed October a time for grand festivities to commemorate his recent wedding. At its core, Oktoberfest is a celebration of the fall harvest, but over the years the tradition has evolved into a worldwide hops-fueled party with oompah bands, liederhosen, dirndls, and bratwurst. Grab a stein, leash up your dachshund, and head over to one of these fine SoCal fests:
