Oktoberfest has begun in Germany! The celebration of beer is held every year in Munich and draws a crowd of nearly 6 million people, making it the world’s largest fair. Festival-goers feast on traditional German foods and drink 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.
