The format is always similar - plenty of beertents and plenty of beer to drink once you are there. This is often served in staggering measures with a litre being quite normal, and the waitresses serving up to 10 'Steins' of beer at once, is a real sight to behold and wonder! Beer is served from 09.00/10.00 in the morning until 22.30 at night, although certain tents have later licenses until 01.00. During the festival there are also plenty of special events, entertainment and activities to keep you amused.
Over 6 million visitors now make the annual pilgrimage to the festival for beer lovers - make sure you're there to sample the fantastic atmosphere!
