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.
