The biggest party on the planet, the munich Oktoberfest 2004, opened this weekend. This year the Oktoberfest also has its own battery powered gadget - The Bavarian Beer Foamer.
The Bavarian Beer Foamer works like a cappuccino foam maker, but it features a traditional blue and white bavarian design. Using the foam maker in a "Mass" beer glass will make the beer look like fresh again. Although it might loose taste as the beer gets stale with repeated foam making.
I suggest to drink the Mass fast enough then you do not need a Beer Foam Maker. The bavarian oktoberfest foam maker sells for 8.50 Euro on Oktoberfest.de
The Munich Oktoberfest is a special kind of event, that everybody should have attended once to understand it. You will dance and scream to music which you normally find aweful. You will dance on benches and tables and it will be fun, that is what beer and a crowd of 1000s fellow beer drinkers will do to you.
