It’s not hard to believe, but hard to imagine, that this year we’ll miss another global event. This autumn, there won’t be beer tents, fairground rides, and people from around the world singing, dancing, and splashing beer in Munich. The world-famous Oktoberfest has been cancelled for the first time in the past 70 years, but its spirit lives on. Though it’s a popular belief, that Oktoberfest is only a tourist attraction, locals participate heavily as well. In parks and squares throughout Munich, stall holders and fairground-ride owners were allowed to set up, retaining a shred of experience this year. From afar, if you’re an avid fan of the festival, missing the action, the only way to support the event is to plan the trip for next year, and sip on German beer from Munich breweries like Paulaner and Hofbräu. Just because we are socially distant doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun. Throw on your Global Intuition shades, have a glass of tasty beer and celebrate with friends online with a “happy hour” that lasts all month long!
