The opening of the keg will take place on the Friday night. With the exclamation “O`zapft is!” (“It`s tapped!”), the first beer is handed to the mayor of the city who then declares the Oktoberfest officially open.

There will be a special “Festbier” available which is brewed specially for the Oktoberfest by braumeister Christian Mϋller. Also available will be the Stellenbrau Jonkers Weissbier.
