London, UK (PRWEB) September 9, 2009
It's official: the price of a pint has gone up again for Oktoberfest 2009. Munich City Council have announced a price increase of 3.8% from last year, with the average cost of one litre of beer 8.44 Euros.
The news will come as a blow to fans of the annual beer fest, with prices already hiked up an extra 5% in 2008. 6 million litres of Bavarian beer are drunk at the festival every year, believed to be the best in the world for its 'pure' mix of hops, barley and water.
The recent price hikes may be enough to put anyone off knocking back a few, but you can still enjoy the festival on a budget by staying at one of the hostels in Munich. Whilst most of the rooms are long gone, there is still some late availability for group bookings.
To help beer fans get the best of the fest, HostelBookers have also put together Oktoberfest travel tips. With tips ranging from food stalls to attractions beyond the beer tents, it's the essential guide to this year's events.
