It’s the last week of Oktoberfest! The celebration of beer is held every year in Munich, Germany, and draws a crowd of nearly 6 million people, making it the world’s largest fair. Festival-goers feast on traditional German foods and imbibe large quantities of Oktoberfest beer, a special type of beer that must be brewed within the city limits of Munich. It’s estimated that during the 16-day celebration, almost 7 million liters of beer are consumed.
