After February carnivals in Bavaria the world-famous “Strong beer festival» begins – «Starkbierfest». Strong beer has higher level of strength (6-8%) and calories, that’s why medieval monks named it “liquid bread”.
During the Strong beer festival, the beer restaurants and breweries organize beer party everywhere around Munich, but the most famous of these is held at the restaurant «Paulaner am Nockherberg», where beer fans drink tons of the famous beer Salvator and sing dozens of Bavarian beer songs to the accompaniment of the orchestra.
The beer party is held in the huge hall of the restaurant for 2500 people, and in good weather it continues even in the beer garden. With beer everybody surely orders pork shank, grilled chicken and other Bavarian specialties.
