You can find out more about both the festival and beer itself at the beer and Oktoberfest museum in the oldest townhouse of Munich dating back to 1340. We love the old recipe for beer on display. Barley malt, hops, water and nothing else! It is the instruction from a Munich brewery dating back to 1487 and prescribes, these, and only these, as the ingredients for beer brewing. The instructions were adopted throughout Bavaria in 1516 as the Purity Law – the secret of success for Bavarian beer. All of this information, and more, can be found at the museum. But that’s not all. We can’t drink beer without counting down the months until Oktoberfest, where Bavarian beer is celebrated to its fullest. So of course, the concept earns a big spot at the museum. Today, Oktoberfest attracts visitors from all over the world and has become the flagship of Germany's culture of beer and traditional festivals. Almost seven million visitors have enjoyed the festival in recent years. Did you?
