Editor's note: as with anything else the tradition of Oktoberfest has been transformed to meet the current age. It began as a celebration for a royal marriage in the 1800s and has devolved into a drinking holiday. Wait, most holidays are excuses to drink nowadays, right? Sorry, I lost my head for a minute. Anyhow Oktoberfest officially ends this weekend but the historical fest wasn't until the middle of October so just go ahead and celebrate both.

Good evening Herr Glockenspiel,

you have a wonderful blog with many interesting records.

I have been looking for some German beer songs for a long time.

Thanks,

Purzelknirps
