The first Oktoberfest was a communal celebration of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. It was held just outside Munich and attended by both royalty and citizens. The epic event started on Oct. 12, 1810, and lasted five days. The festival became an annual event, a celebration of autumn, harvest, agriculture, and the year’s locally brewed Märzen - a dark beer, suitably aged and in prime condition for fall consumption. By the 1870s, Josef Sedlmayr, brewer at Franziskaner (today part of Spaten), noticed that lighter beers were becoming more popular. So, he developed a Vienna-style lagerbier that was introduced at Oktoberfest in 1872, becoming the official style of Oktoberfest bier. Downtown Phoenix Oktoberfest will feature a variety of German Oktoberfest-style biers and das boot to drink them from!
Oktoberfest is the world’s largest festival drawing over six million people from around the world each year. In addition to the festivities, bier and good times, Oktoberfest features the best in traditional German food including bratwurst, weisswurst, currywurst, soft pretzels, schnitzel, spatzel, sauerkraut, and warm potato salad. Keeping with tradition, Downtown Phoenix Oktoberfest will bring a bit of Munich to Phoenix with authentic fare from local restaurants and food purveyors.
