Rainbow Heat and Power attend Oktoberfest 2014

3 October 2014

On Saturday 20th September the 181st 2014 Munich Oktoberfest commenced, with the ceremony of tapping the first barrel of beer. The Mayor of Munich is charged with this duty and only took 4 strikes; the record is 17 in 1950. When the beer has been tapped the Mayor shouts “O'zapft is”, marking the opening of the festival.

As a group Rainbow Heat and Power, Treco and Wye Valley Energy are taking customers as a “thank you” to Oktoberfest over this weekend. Taking part in the trip is Duncan’s Renewables, Dunster Heat Limited, Maden Eco, McComish Property and Cruden Renewable Energy Solutions. They are visiting the Winzerer Fahndl Big Tent, which is hosted by the Paulaner brewery and has seating inside and out for 10,900 people.

The group are dressing in traditional Bavarian costume and we look forward to the pictures for Monday’s news item. Watch this space…
