Oktoberfest threatened

Forget about terrorists, wars, and global warming. A real crisis is brewing for the Okctoberfest in Munich this year.

Oktoberfest 2014: fears of pretzel shortage as bakers threaten to strike - Telegraph

Quote:
If we don’t get any further by mid-September, we’ll strike in the bakeries. Then there will be a lack of pretzels and bread rolls,” Mustafa Oz, deputy regional president of the NGG gastronomy union, told reporters from Focus, a German news magazine.

I have attended several in Munich. Don't recall having any pretzels. Much beer? yes.

I love german pretzels. But since I'm eating low carb now, maybe this would be a good year for me to go.

I'm sure that the government will bend over backwards to reach a settlement.

Not quite Munich but was at the Oktoberfest festivities in Beaver Creek CO last weekend, no shortage of beer, pretzels, and brats. I'll be checking out Vail this coming weekend to make sure their Oktoberfest is adequately supplied.
