How to order a beer at the Oktoberfest: A Bier, bittschen
Maybe the most important thing to know before you hit the Weis’n. How to order a beer in Bavarian:
A Bier, bittschen – One beer please or a beer please.
Make sure if you just one 1 beer you put up your thumb. If you use your pointer finger they will take it as you want 2. So, thumb up = 1 beer. Pointer finger up = 2 beers. Thumb and pointer finger = 2 beers.
O’zapft is (Angezapft ist) – It’s Tapped
Every year the Lord Mayor of Munich declares the Oktoberfest to be officially opened with “It’s tapped!”, as he hammers a tap into the very first keg of Oktoberfest beer.
