Ted Marti, head of August Schell’s Brewing Company, counts the number of empty kegs the day after the Oktoberfest celebration held on site. Marti wanted to get a firsthand count of the expired kegs to make sure the mix was right for future product runs.
This year’s Oktoberfest had lower numbers than in 2016. Marti estimated 1,000 less people visited the brewery, but he is not disappointed with the turnout. “It was still a wonderful celebration,” he said.
