    I attended the München Oktoberfest last week and I looked for the BierBike but it was not in evidence. Frankly, the crowds were probably too thick for it.
    Some Oktoberfest math — a Maß (tankard) of Bier holds a liter. That’s 2.2 pounds of beer. An Oktoberfest seating is six hours. At my table, people were working through more than one Maß per hour. Figure the average celebrant consumes 18 pounds of Bier in an evening.

    By extension, a standard 160L barrel of beer like the one shown in that photo would power 10 Germans for about 12 hours.
