To celebrate Oktoberfest in 2012, Hacker-Pschorr developed a new Original Oktoberfest beer tap handle representing Hacker-Pschorrs traditional beer maid image. The image was inspired by U.S. model Nicole Bailey from Denver. The new 2012 Original Oktoberfest tap handles are making their debut upscale bars and restaurants nationwide.
While millions toast Oktoberfest as a celebration of beer, few realize its origin actually honors a celebration of love and marriage. In fact, now the worlds largest festival, Oktoberfest grew from a wedding party for Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese, held in October 1810 in Munich. Prince Ludwig commissioned Josef Pschorr, then the brewmaster of the Hacker-Pschorr brewery, among other Munich brewers, to develop special brews to commemorate the occasion. The beer was so good that the party lasted for days and Oktoberfest beer was born. The rest is history.
Today, Hacker-Pschorr is one of only six breweries in Munich that brews and serves beer at Oktoberfest, along with its sister brand, Paulaner. More than six million people continue to celebrate on the land donated by Mr. Pschorr and Hacker-Pschorr Original Oktoberfest beer is the original from Munich and similar to the brew that was served at the very first Oktoberfest in 1810.
