  3. From the bread lover: “Hearty food in a warm setting, seemed pretty authentic. I had the goulash, which I’ve also had at a beer hall in Munich, and they were pretty spot on (if a little heavy on the salt). Super filling stuff, so don’t overload yourself on bread. Unique room lined with German steins, a lot to look at. There’s also an ice cream place in walking distance, it’s a cool little strip.”bring fresh beer to your kitchen with picobrew - checkers old munchen

Why Does Everyone Like The Month Of October? Oktoberfest!

Posted on Oct 3, 2018 in Checkers Old Munchen Blog

Oktoberfest is one of the most well-known German celebrations in the world.

The more than two week festival takes place in Munich, Bavaria, Germany annually from late September through the first week of October.

People from around the world travel to Germany every year and the celebrations typically see over six million international visitors.

At a recent Oktoberfest celebration, almost eight million liters of beer were served to thirsty guests. The locals call Oktoberfest, “Wiesn,” the name for fairgrounds.

The local celebration has taken place since 1810 and is an important part of local culture. Fortunately for those who are fans of beer, German food, and a really good time, Oktoberfest has spread the world over with celebrations big and small.

Oktoberfest is often enjoyed at great restaurants, breweries, and in local communities, perfect for those who can’t make it all the way to Munich to enjoy the amazing cultural celebration.
