The occasion for the first Oktoberfest in 1810 was the wedding of the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen. On October 12th 1810 the festivities began and they ended on October 17th with a horse race. Since it was so well-received, the festival was repeated in the following years, then extended and at this point brought forward into September.

In celebration, Sun Singer has been stockpiling the perfect beers for your personal Octoberfest. We have over a dozen selections chilled and ready to celebrate. ‘Tis the season…no need for excuses. Prost!
