^^^That was early on Thursday, like 1130 so the tent wasn't packed yet. On Saturday you couldn't even get inside the tents it was so busy.

Hofbrau tent. They had dried hops hanging from the columns so I grabbed some and threw them in my beer.

Horses drawing the breweries' beer barrels:



More Oktoberfest craziness:





Drinking at Andechs on the Marienplatz. They had hops hanging up too so I grabbed a couple cones.



Drinking at the Hofbrauhaus on Saturday, away from the fairgrounds but it was still packed as hell. All the Spanish in the beer haus were chanting like they were at a soccer game.

Well, that's about it from Oktoberfest. I've got tons of crowd pics but who wants to see 10 pages of those?



Right now I'm in Oberwesel on the Rhine and staying in a castle hotel. Great views.





Great beer, too:
