Oktoberfest

No list of beer festivals would be complete without a mention of this huge event which takes place in Munich from late September through to the first weekend in October. With around 6 million visitors this is the world’s largest beer festival and it has been running since 1810. Unlike many other beer festivals Oktoberfest does not showcase beers from around the world as only beer brewed within Munich’s city limits is allowed at the festival.

    The best festival in North america it s “Mondial de la bière de Montreal ” . Since 1994, offering up over 500 different beers, meads, ciders and other beverages for taste testing consumption, the Mondial de la Bière typically ensures that more than 200 beers are new to the festival. Over 180000 visitors for the event in 2016
    And the entrance is free.
