O'zapft Is! Prost! Cheers!
O'zapft is! O'zapft is! This is the traditional way Oktoberfest -- aka "Lager Christmas" -- has kicked off for centuries. Literal meaning, "it's been tapped!" But really means it's party time, der bruder! Drinking Socially podcast hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza -- along with the rest of the world -- are bummed that the city of Munich canceled the actual Oktoberfest once again this year. But fear not! We're keeping the spirit of this celebration alive and well with the help of some classic Märzen's and some brand spanking new Untappd badges!
So drop the needle on your favorite David Hasselhoff record, put some sausages on your George Foreman grill, and spill beer on your felt hats and tubas. This Lager Christmas, keep the milk and cookies in the fridge. We're celebrating with the greatest beers on earth. It's liter-hosen time. Did you see what we did there?
Traditionally, Oktoberfest ushers in a harvest celebration of drinking Märzens and festbiers. And while many Oktoberfest celebrations around the world have been canceled, Untappd invites you to join in on the fall fun by safely hoisting a stein or two of beer from one of the six traditional Munich breweries.
On this holiday episode of Drinking Socially, Hickok and Dispenza lift their steins full of Paulaner Oktoberfest Märzen / Original Münchener Märzen as they unlock the "Oktoberfest (2021)" badge.
To earn this badge, simply check-in one (1) beer from one of these original Munich-based breweries: Augustiner-Bräu München (Augustiner), Hacker-Pschorr, Staatliches Hofbräuhaus München (Hofbräu), Paulaner Brauerei, and Spaten-Franziskaner-Löwenbräu-Gruppe (Spaten) between September 18, 2021 - October 3, 2021.
