Oktoberfest Celebrations Around San Diego

Originally celebrated in early-1800s Germany in honor of the country's royal family, Oktoberfest today is simply a reason for 6 million people to come to Munich to drink, eat and be very merry.

The Munich celebration may have more than 150 years on us in San Diego, but that doesn't mean we don't know how to throw a party. Here's where you can chug a hefty stein of lager, chow down on a Bratwurst and oom-pah-pah to your heart's content.
