Also called the “The strong beer festival”, the Starkbierzeit refers to the entertainment festival which covers the days of March every year in Germany, especially in Munich. The local people take a break for two weeks and carve out for their favorite beverages and the party is thrown in the beer halls with noise and drum beats. The local people also refer it to as the ‘Fifth season’. The roots of this festival can be dated back to the age of Paulaner monks who started making extra-strength beverage in order to sustain for their Lenten fast. Being more interesting, some of the earliest names of this strong drink were ‘Gentlemen’s beer’, ‘Holy father oil’ and ‘Liquid bread’. At the last, it was called as Salvator.

The concept of Starkbierzeit has not been much publicized which is really good for the locals in Germany. If you want to join the party, the only thing which you will need to bring with you is a facial sweet smile, heavy appetite and lust for the strong beer. It is the perfect time to enjoy the fervor, variety and pride of culture, traditions and colors of Bavaria. You will be just needed to book a hotel room and have dining with your family for the coming few days this month in March 2012.
