Since 1950, the announcement O’zapft is! follows the “tapping” of the first beer keg by the incumbent mayor of Munich in the Schottenhamel festival tent. This signifies the opening of the Oktoberfest in Munich. Afterwards twelve firecracker shots can be heard as a signal that the beer may now be poured in all festival tents.
This year, the opening will take place on Friday, 23.10.2020 at 12 noon at Alpenrösli in Klosters.
The beer keg will be tapped by the current Alpenrösli hosts Marco and Niggi. Afterwards we all toast to an unforgettable Oktoberfest.
The anticipation is huge!
