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.

Tomorrow the 177th Otkoberfest starts at 11am with the traditional parade through Munich to the Theresienwiese the site of the Oktoberfest. Then the official opening is when the Christian Ude the mayor of Munich declares “O’zapft is!” or It’s tapped! as he taps the first Keg in the Schottenhamel-Tent.  Check out the official Oktoberfest Website for info.  If you want to learn some Bavarian check out The Wiesn-Dictionary
