The Germans have a rich tradition of brewing finely crafted beers recognized worldwide for their body and character. Cities take great pride in their local brews, which are often made from centuries old recipes.
During Oktoberfest, Germans celebrate their heritage with music, food and fun. Despite its name, the festival runs from mid-September through the first week-end of October. The first Oktoberfest was held in October of 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria and Therese of Sachsen- Hildburghausen. Eventually, revelers moved the festivities earlier to take advantage of the milder weather and longer days. While the official celebration takes place in Munich, there are numerous Oktoberfest celebrations around the world.
The Munich event takes place on an area named the "Theresienwiese", and is called "die Wiesn" ("the meadow", in Bavarian dialect) for short. A special Oktoberfest beer (Märzen) is brewed for the occasion, which is slightly darker and stronger, in both taste and alcohol. It is served in a one-liter-tankard called Maß.

Authentic Oktoberfest Maerzen Beer
"Marzenbeer gets its name from the time when brewers brewed a large batch of beer in March to last through the summer and stored in barrels for the fall festival,"says Hallertauer Hopfenhaendler, Hans Steininger. Today, it is the traditional beer of the Munich Oktoberfest and also is still the traditional drink in September and October. No style of beer is more closely identified with a country than the Oktoberfest Maerzen. "The traditional Marzen style beers have a complex maltiness, with a color that can range from deep gold to reddish amber and has a medium to strong alcoholic content," continues Steininger. The maltiness is most present in the bouquet. The palate is malty too, but not overpoweringly so.

Only six local Munich breweries are allowed to serve beer at the Oktoberfest --
Löwenbräu, Spaten, Augustiner, Hofbräu, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr --in so-called Bierzelte (beer "tents") which hold some 3,000 to 10,000 people

Löwenbräu's history dated back to 1383 when the innkeeper at Zum Löwen (the Lion's Inn ) began brewing his own beer. While it belongs to one of the six breweries from within the Munich city limits which is allowed to serve their specialties at the Oktoberfest, it also sponsors a huge beer tent which can hold almost 6,000 revelers. Löwenbräu has been served at every Oktoberfest in Munich since 1810.

Spaten Oktoberfest Ur-Maerzen
Spaten has a rich history as one of the oldest breweries in Germany. Spaten Oktoberfest Beer, created in 1872, is the world's first Oktoberfest beer.
In fact, the mayor of Munich taps a keg of their Oktoberfst Beer to officially start the celebrations. Spaten Premium Lager. This beer is our specialty. In 1894 Spaten became the first brewery in Munich to produce this brand of light lager. Golden in color with a well-balanced hop-flavor. The full rounded body is a superb balance between hops and a malty sweetness.

In 1294, monks of the order of Augustinians established a monastery directly outside of Munich's city walls. The monastery was moved inside the city in 1315; a brewery operated by the monks was first mentioned in 1328. The monastery was granted the right not only to brew beer but also to sell it on their premises which started the tradition of brewery-owned beer halls that still exists today.
In 1803, during a wave of secularization that swept through Europe following the French revolution, the State of Bavaria took ownership of the Augustine monastery, including the brewery. The latter was sold to the Wagner family in 1829 which still owns the company today.

Hofbräu beer is of course, the only beer served in The Staatliches Hofbräuhaus in München (lit. state court-brewery in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, owned by the state government. The Hof (translated as court) comes from the brewery's history as a royal brewery in the Kingdom of Bavaria.

As a sister to Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner is one of the most popular beers at the yearly Oktoberfest. Its name stems from the Paulaner monks who brewed this beer first in 1627. During the Lenten period (40 days before Easter) abstinence, which only allowed for bread and water, the monks reasoned that beer could be drunk as "liquid bread" not violating their fasting promise. Their innovation soon entered sites outside the monastery permitting enjoyment for ordinary people.
Paulaner Oktoberfest-Märzen was originally a seasonal brew, however, is now brewed and enjoyed all year long. With its caramelized, barely malty nose, the rich, full taste with a creamy and full finish makes the Paulaner Oktoberfest a very popular beer.

Another Munich brewery whose beer brewing process has remained virtually unchanged for over 580 years is Hacker-Pschorr. Adhering to the Purity Law its brews neither contain preservatives nor additives. A crucial element in the brewing process is the maturation time; the longer the ingredients are allowed to marry, the smoother and richer the flavor. Hacker-Pschorr stands out for a maturation period aging at least three times longer than usual brews.

German Beer Purity Law from 1516

Beer brewing has been regulated by law in Germany for over 800 years. A long-standing tradition to which all German brewers still remain true today.
The law was first applied in Bavaria, and by 1906 it became law for the entire German Empire. Although the law is applicable only for beer brewed and sold in Germany, the majority of beer destined for export markets is stilled brewed according to the so-called "Reinheitsgebot", or Purity Law.
The law stipulates that beer may only be brewed using natural ingredients i.e. nothing but malt, hops and water. Since natural yeast also forms part of the brewing process, this was later added to the list of permitted ingredients.
In 1165 a fine was levied in Augsburg for serving "inferior" beer.
In 1487 Duke Albrecht IV proclaimed a regulation establishing a uniform beer price.
"One measure winter beer shall cost one pfennig and a measure summer beer shall cost two pfennigs." Each brewer was required to, from that time on, swear a "Brew Oath" before the ducal treasurer, whereby he would "use only barley, hops and water for the beer, knowledgeably simmer it and add nothing else nor allow anyone else to add anything." This regulation was originally only decreed for Munich. In 1987 this 500 year old regulation was renewed by the Munich brewers.
1493 George the Rich of Bayers-Landshut proclaimed a regulation which was extended to all of Bavaria in 1516 by Duke Wilhelm IV. This regulation is well-known as the German Beer Purity Law from 1516./
