Today, Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer fair, attracting millions of visitors each year. During the festival, massive tents are set up to serve traditional German foods and types of beer. Live music and dancing are also an important part of the festivities. Oktoberfest is a great opportunity to experience German culture and enjoy food and beer, but if you’re not a beer lover you can enjoy a cocktail with DrDrink’s Cocktail Machine!
