Hi all! Freising celebrates its rich beer tradition annually with their "Tag des Bieres". Highlights include a beer tour, parade with Tracht, a traditional wooden keg opening, the appearance of the Hallertauer Hop Queen, a tasting of the former mayor's homemade beer, a beer mug shuffle contest, beer barrel race, and of course food and traditional music. The parade marks the official start at 3:45pm and the Anzapfen starts at 4pm. Barrel racing begins at 6pm. Looking forward to celebrating a special part of old Bavaria with you!
For those of you who are interested, there's a tour highlighting the town's old breweries starting at 3pm at a cost of 6.50/4.50€. You can also sign up for the barrel racing contest.
