It’s the beginning of Fall which can only mean one thing: Oktoberfest is upon us!
Did you know Oktoberfest originated from Munich, Germany, and dates all the way back to 1810? Suppose you’ve ever had the good fortune of partaking in the seasonal festivities of Oktoberfest. In that case, you can thank Bavarian Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen, as it started as an occasion to celebrate their marriage.
It’s a great time to get together with friends and family while also enjoying some of the best brews. So great, it’s no wonder why this celebration has been going on for more than two centuries!
