Oktoberfest booze will be costlier this year

Published on : Tuesday, July 4, 2017

OktoberfestOktoberfest in Munich is one of the most celebrated festivals but the price of beer might increase this year, with a litre costing as much as €0.25 (22p) more than in 2016.

 

 

This German festival, which is all about beer, previously cost €10.70 (£9.40) in the three most expensive tents, but this year will retail at €10.95 (£9.60). The cheapest pay for a stein of beer this time will be €10.60 (£9.30), and it will be only be available in two tents.

 

 

To put these prices into context, one pint equates to about half a litre, so the festival is charging almost £5 per pint. in 2003, the cost of beer has risen steeply when a litre would cost €6.80 (£5.95). However, the city officials pointed out that the price hasn’t crossed the €11 mark yet.

 

 

More than five million punters are expected to flock to Munich from 16 September to 3 October. It is however expected that the travellers will take the rise in the cost by 2.3 per cent in their stride. However, makes the celebration costlier is the soft drinks. A litre of water costs, on average, €8.73 (£7.65) – a whopping increase of €0.46 (40p) from 2016. A litre of lemonade, meanwhile, will be priced at €9.55 (£8.40).

 

 

Wheat beer, Weissbier is the most expensive drink. When purchased in the wine tent, it will set punters back €15.60 (£13.70). This year’s festival will feature 14 large beer tents and more than 20 smaller tents. Tickets to the event cost from around £120 per person.
