The Wiesn mug of beer: A tasty calorie bomb
Oktoberfest beer has a higher original gravity than normal light beer and is always served in full pulls. Original gravity is the percentage of non-volatile substances dissolved in water from malt and hops before fermentation. In addition to vitamins and flavorings, these are mainly malt sugar and protein. For this reason, one Wiesn beer has nearly 500 kilocalories. For comparison: That’s equivalent to an entire plate of penne all’arrabbiata.
