While it’s called “Oktoberfest,” the reality is that Germany’s most popular beer festival begins in September. Yeah get your tickets ASAP because this thing kicks off this Saturday on September 21st.
Forgetting for a moment that over 7 million liters of beer (14,793,634.94 pints for all you metric-hating Americans out there) are guzzled at the event, one of the reasons that Oktoberfest is so impressive is the women who work there. The beer maidens go through rigorous training which enables them to carry up to 10 mugs of beer at once–with minimal spillage.
Of course, that means that the spillage is left to other areas.
