The real Oktoberfest beer… in truth, what is served in current times at the Oktoberfest is a more robust version of the original Münchner Helles, specifically brewed for the festival. The origins of the beer and the festival are interlinked and go back to 1810. On October 12, Crown Prince Ludwig, the future king of Bavaria, married Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen and decided to organize a large public festival. The event was such a success that it was decided to make it an annual occurrence.
