2016 sees the 500th anniversary of the Bavarian (beer) purity law. The Bavarian brewing industry is set to celebrate the anniversary with a huge beer festival: the big birthday party will be held in Munich July 22-24 2016 for locals and guests from all over the world.
Some 100 Bavarian breweries will be presenting their best beers in the area of the Feldherrnhalle and Odeonsplatz. For three days, thousands of visitors can enjoy the beer diversity of Bavaria at the beer benches between white pagodas and high-class tents.
The industry will be presenting the unique diversity of Bavarian beers and invite everyone to taste them. Culinary specialities from all over Bavaria will be on offer. It goes without saying that a real festival has to offer music and entertainment – there will be three stages in the heart of the Bavarian capital.
Visitors to the big anniversary party can find out the answer to this sip by sip –from brewery to brewery with a special 0.3-litre festival glass. Payment is by means of the „beer thaler“, which can be traded in everywhere.
Along the way, your thirst for knowledge of Bavarian beer and its ingredients will also be quenched: how are brewing grain and hops cultivated and processed? What is malt really? How is beer brewed? What distinguishes the numerous Bavarian beer types? Answers to these and many questions and many others will be given in the midst of Munich in July 2016
