Munich Starkbierfest photos - a preview
“A gallery of Starkbierfest photos from Munich - it's the best strong beer the world!”
Munich’s Strong Beer Festival might not be as famous at the city’s annual Oktoberfest, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less fun.
The Starkbierfest is a fantastic way to wave goodbye to the European winter and party, part of a Bavarian tradition that goes back centuries.
The monks started it you know.
The holy men made a vow not to eat during the 40 days of lent before Easter. But how could they possibly make it through without any food? A few carbo-rich strong beers should do the trick!
Here are some photos taken at Starkbierfest celebrations in Munich, both at Paulaner am Nockherberg and at the Löwenbräukeller.

At the Starkbierfest in the Munich Löwenbräukeller, very nice atmosphere there as well!
An already devoured ox carcass hangs on its spit at the Nockherberg festival hall
during the Munich Starkbierfest. It's almost enough to make you stop eating meat!

Yes we can! That's me attempting a little inter-photo descriptivity
at the Munich Strong Beer Festival.
Arriving at the Nockherberg in the snow! The white stuff doesn't fall every year at
Starkbierfest time but when it does it's something quite special. There's nothing like
the thought of getting inside for a few cosy beers in weather like this!
It's cold outside! But at least you can avail yourself of a giant pretzel if you have
to go outside for a cigarette or something at the Munich Starkbierfest.
The action is well underway inside the Festsaal at Paulaner am Nockherberg.
