CocoVail, Barcelona’s First Beer Hall, is proud to announce our 2nd Annual Vailfest / Oktoberfest in Barcelona. No, you’re not drunk (or maybe you are)… that’s a ‘k’ instead of a ‘c’ in October, it’s not Octoberfest, it’s Oktoberfest.
Bust out your lederhosen and bring your beer steins prior to busting a move like Frankenstein (for Halloween), it’s Oktoberfest, baby! While Oktoberfest is celebrated all over the world now, we know it’s important to honor this great tradition with our own rendition.
While we won’t have a big tent, massive steins, or live bands playing traditional Bavarian tunes, we will bring the noise in other forms and make sure to give a nod to the South German festivities.
Fun Fact: In 2017 Oktoberfest party-goers consumed over 7.5 million liters of beer in 18 days! We repeat, 7.5 MILLION LITERS of beer. Holy Moses, Baby Jesus, and Mother Mary, that’s a boat load of beer!
What is Oktoberfest?
Oktoberfest started in Germany (Saxony-Hildburghausen) on October 12th, 1810. It originally was an event to honor the wedding of Prince Ludwig aka King Ludwig I to Princess Therese. The citizens of Munich were invited to a big party and people got super wasted by their standards. This may or may not be historically accurate, but we’re humans, so it’s probably 100% true.
Another Fun Fact: Apparently Oktoberfest was non-alcoholic during it’s inception, so what you just read was very misleading. Oh well, it’s more fun this way anyway, right?
Moving on, Oktoberfest originally took place in present day Bavaria, and now the festival is present almost anywhere. It makes sense, because we are generally looking for reasons to party, no matter the occasion.
