The weather gods are anything but kind to the bierfest 2013. "I had ordered temperatures around 22 degrees. That would have been ideal, but we won't get that this year," says schmid, said michael schmid of kulmbacher brewery in his half-time review of the beer week, which kicked off on a much too bright saturday. "Nevertheless, we can be proud that so many people found their way to the tent, but we served much less beer than usual." "But we don't want to set new records every year at the beer festival. This is a festival with tradition", adds company spokeswoman helga metzel.
Relatively quickly came to the beginning of the week, the hoped-for cooling, but with rain. "We have had significantly fewer visitors. But at the isartaler witches were 3500 people in the tent. And at the day of the generations there were 2100, that's also another 250 more than the year before", says schmid.
