DATA: from the 15 March to the 06 April 2019
PLACE: Munich, Germany
Who said that to attend the biggest beer event in Munich, do you have to wait until September?
From March to early April 2019, for about 3 weeks, the Bavarian city is ready to welcome hordes of "thirsty" tourists to its Monaco Starkbierfest. It is one of the most interesting events of the month, dedicated to his majesty the Beer.
Over 3 weeks of pure fun at the beautiful location of the Paulaner am Nockherberg, and other small producers who open their doors to the Monaco Starkbierfest. The event takes place in the Munich metropolitan area. There are booths just like at the Oktoberfest, and 4 major labels including Paulaner e Löwenbräu.
The name Starkbierfest contains the very essence of the event; it literally means, in fact, Festival of strong beer. A force that originates mainly from the taste and flavor of the proposed beer, whose guidelines impose an alcohol content of at least 7,5%. The latter is characteristic of the precious Salvator Stout, produced by the master brewers Paulaner monks, according to the traditional recipe. The famous Doppelbock, until the nineteenth century, was exclusive only to the monks and the prince. Later it was marketed during the period of Lent. Someone claims they did it to get visitors !!!

Today, beer is served in the famous one liter Keferloher. You can accompany it to Bavarian gastronomic dishes. In fact, the Monaco Starkbierfest is not just the place to drink beer at will. You can indeed delight in Bavarian gastronomic specialties. Chicken, duck, pork knuckle and much more; peppery bread and traditional desserts. And, lots of music. You will find the "Die Nockherberger" Octoberfest-Orchestra and the "Take 5 Live" Octoberfest-Band to accompany your days of fun.
