The Oktoberfest is the world’s largest festival held annually in München, Germany. This 2-week event runs from late September to the first weekend in October. Oktoberfest attracts more than 6 million people from around the world every year.

In addition to Oktoberfest beer (with nearly 7 million liters served during the festival in previous years), fair attendees enjoy a variety of traditional foods including Brezen (pretzels). The knot-like cable in these socks is based on the shape of Bavarian pretzels intertwining down the leg and onto the foot.

So pour yourself a beer, grab some delicious brezen, and O’zapft is!
