After 83 years of Bräurosl: No application for the Wiesn 2021
Farewell to the largest folk festival in the world: The Heide family announced they will not be applying to run the Bräurosl at the 2021 Oktoberfest. "Mind games about a reorientation have been going on for some months now," said Daniela Heide during a press conference. The family's Oktoberfest tradition goes back to 1936, when great-grandfather Georg Heide took over Bräurosl at the Oktoberfest for an initial period of three years. After the Second World War, the Pschorr beer tent was back at Theresienwiese in 1951, and was later taken over by Willy Heide – who, by the way, initiated the traditional concert at the Bavaria statue and was also the spokesman for the Oktoberfest hosts for many years.
