On October 12, 1810, Crown Prince Ludwig was married to Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates. The fields were named Theresienwiese ("Theresa's meadow") in honor of the Crown Princess. Although the name remains the same, locals have since simply abbreviated it to the "Wiesn". Oktoberfest was born! Modern celebration has replaced the small tents with giant brewery-sponsored beer halls that can hold up to 5,000 people apiece. It now lasts 16 days, sees about 6 million visitors and pours 5.5 million liters of beer.
Ninety Acres Beverage Director, Michael Smythe, has organized a fantastic celebration in the classic Oktoberfest tradition. Taste brews from Yards, Six Point, Brooklyn, Dogfish Head, Heritage, Great Lakes, Weyerbacher, Hofbraü and Hacker-pschorr breweries. The Chefs at Ninety Acres will present a fall lunch buffet, to pair with the tasting of these craft brews.
