Here is some inspiration for how awesome I think Oktoberfest is.
Anyways, I have never been and have a couple questions.
The first is, how is the beer served? In the tent above it's quoted as having 10,000 people in attendance. Do you buy beer buy the mug or do you pay something like $30 to get in for infinite beer? Are waiters just walking around with mugs and you hail them? How do you serve 10,000 people beer in a timely fashion to keep them toasty? In the same line of thought, do they serve food to you and how?
Another question I have is security. I get the feeling something like this would not fly in America unless there was security visible always; especially since people are drinking from glass mugs. I've been to several mass drinking events in america and it almost seems like a police state. Are the people and the mood that great across the pond that security isn't really a pressing issue in events such as these? I can't see sort of security in that video.
Lastly, is it as amazing as it appears?
