Books & Beer

Hello and welcome to October! 


This month we will be looking at books specifically about beer!  Please remember to drink responsibly. If you are a beer connoisseur, you are probably already aware of Oktoberfest and National American Beer Day. If not, those are just the two of many celebrated events around the world. Oktoberfest was originally a horse race to honor Prince Regent Ludwig of Bavaria, the later King Ludwig I, and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen in October of 1810 for their upcoming nuptials. This event was created by Andreas Michael Dall’Armi, Member of the Bavarian National Guard, who would later in 1824 be awarded the first citizens gold medal for inventing ‘Oktoberfest’. Internationally Oktoberfest is celebrated from September until the first Sunday of October for a total of 16 days.
