Proprietor Manfred Vollmer is very proud of the reputation of this tent as the friendliest tent of the festival. It prides itself on an emphasis on being family friendly with great fun for all! Over the past 16 years, the waiter and waitresses have built a reputation and pride themselves on never forgetting to smile no matter how frenzied the atmosphere within the tent. Additionally, two Tuesdays during the Festival there is a “kid’s day” with especially low prices. And with a capacity of over 8500 guests there is plenty of room for all.
This tent thinks of themselves as a large extended family with many of the same guests back each and every year. They are back each year to enjoy one of the biggest beer garden which serves, the most excellent Augustiner beer, authentically, from the huge wooden barrels. This brew has original wort of 13.77% and an alcohol content of 6% which is medium-bodied with a mellow taste that is considered moderately strong. This brew has a very pale golden color which provides a floral aroma coupled with a hint of toasty malt that cuts down on the bitterness. It is very refreshing and drinkable, but has a more dense body then most of this typical beer style. While you are sampling the beer, you should try the world famous suckling pig which is prepared in the traditional Bavarian custom of marinating in a malt beer sauce served with potato salad. This authentic cuisine will be a treat for your taste buds.
The sounds of the Augustiner Oktoberfest Chapel brass band sounds under the direction of Reinhard Hagitte add to the festivities all day and all night long.
