BYOF – Bring your Own Food

Many of the biergartens encourage you to bring your own food and just buy your drinks there. Head to some of the farmers’ markets and pick up hearty Bavarian fare like bowls brimming with thick stews, and plates piled high with sausage and potatoes.

Munich beer is strong!

German beer is known to have a higher alcohol content than American brews. If you are used to milder brews, you should pace yourself while drinking the Munich beer. Remember that at Oktoberfest, beer is sold only in liter quantities.
