WHAT IS OKTOBERFEST?

Oktoberfest is a German festival that is celebrated for multiple days anywhere between  late September to the first Sunday in October and lots of beer is consumed.

For this reason, breweries typically get in on the celebration that feature music, dancing and dressing up in folk costumes.
