Kim Jong-un initiated the first Beer festival in North Korea.

Kim Jong-un had a new idea. He reportedly is the master mind behind North Korea's first ever beer festival. The North Korean Oktoberfest knock-off lasts for 20 days, will be from now on an annual event.

The Taedonggang Beer Festival is located in Pyongyang at the Taedonggang river banks and is open to tourists. Russia Today has published a video from the North Korean Oktoberfest that show uniformed waitresses serve beer in big mugs. 

The first North Korean Beerfest is still small scale with 800 guests. The Munich Oktoberfest 2016 to open on 17th of September expects millions of guests again. There will be 98,000 seats in 14 tents. Over 13,000 people work at the Oktoberfest during the 17 days.

It is certainly more pleasing to see Kim Jong-un putting his mind to beer than to missles.
