What do and Oktoberfest and Hofbräuhaus have in common?             Munich’s famous Hofbräuhaus was founded in 1589 by the Duke of Bavaria, Wilhelm V. as the brewery for Royalty. The Oktoberfest tradition started in 1810 to celebrate the marriage of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese. In an effort to allow the commoners to partake in the ceremonies, the noble couple decided to organize a grand wedding party for its subjects outside of the Munich city gates—and some 40,000 happy Bavarians showed up for the fun and to partake of the Royalty’s Hofbräuhaus beer. That was the beginning of Oktoberfest.
