Germany: Oktoberfest By Aaron Johnson, Joel Anderson, 2018
- Germany: Oktoberfest
Did you know that Oktoberfest is a 204-year old tradition? And that the festival started as a celebration of the marriage of Prince Ludwig and Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen, in 1810? It wasn’t until much later that Oktoberfest became a beer festival. And the beer consumed during Oktoberfest is also quite unique. It’s brewed specifically for Oktoberfest, for one thing. Oktoberfest beer isn't produced during any other time of the year, and it's only sourced from German breweries. Lovers of a good celebration and tradition, Anderson Design Group handcrafted a vintage travel poster of Oktoberfest, a colorful illustration styled after the original designs of early-1900s travel art. Available as a canvas banner, art print, or metal sign, this handcrafted artwork would make a great conversation starter or gift.
