More from a press release:
Each year beergarden makes commemorative glassware for their Oktoberfest celebration. In years past they have had 1/2 liter to full liter clear glass steins and boots. For the 5th Annual Oktoberfest they will carry commemorative ceramic steins while supplies last. Buy it full of your favorite Oktoberfest beer or just buy the stein. Munich traditionally kicks off Oktoberfest with the mayor pouring the first pint to open the festival. To honor this tradition, City Councilor Claire Syrett will pour the first pint at 5pm on Saturday, September 21st.

Moi Poki. Hot Crab Beer Cheese Dip with Bavarian Pretzels.
