"Ozapft is ‘s"

The barrel ‘s tapped!

This Bavarian exclamation is referring to the first barrel of beer ceremoniously opened at a beer festival.


At the broaching of Lenten beer or of especially strong “May bock” and, of course, at the Munich Octoberfest (beer festival in Munich - Oktoberfest), the lord mayor draws the first litre of beer at the stroke of twelve noon.
