and they are going to join us for an evening as they tour the West! This will be a great opportunity to say hello to Christoph and Mrs Hofherr in a more chill environment vs. the chaos of the Hacker Festzelt.
Then a few days later we will return to Prost Bar in Lincoln Park, Chicago. The Midwest team will come from Chicago, Cincy, and beyond, I'm sure. Prost is a great German bar that hosted us for our last training session prior to Ofest 22. They have very good food and of course a nice selection of German beers in a great environment.
Can you join us? Prost!

ARD TV and BR24 online featured the Hacker Herren on their #1 news sites in Germany. The video was watched by millions live on TV and 100's of thousands online. The comments were very positive about the friendliness of the group and were impressed that we raised $25k for our waiters and staff during Coronavirus times. Next year they plan to come visit us again and do a live shot with us from the Wiesn. Prost to Nicole Reman and ARD TV for doing this story on the Hacker Herren.
And at the 1:20 mark of this video, you see Jill Meyer, the Chamber of Commerce leader from Cincinnati being interviewed. She is now an official Hacker Herren as she enjoyed the festivities with us throughout our trip along with her team member, Spencer Mapes. Thanks to Spencer and Jill for joining in with us and learning about the official Oktoberfest. I'm sure they will take some of the fun back to their awesome Oktoberfest Zinzinnati in the future. Prost!
If anyone epitomizes the spirit of Oktoberfest and shared the gemutlichkeit that defines Oktoberfest it is Mike (Duke) Carpentier. Duke was the friendliest guy in the tent. He met everyone, had funny stories to share, was there from opening to closing each day (and two days before!!) . He really embraced the spirit of the Hacker Herren and loved being a part of the group. When he broke out the bandana and one eyed glasses, the inner pirate in him came shining through. Maybe next year he will take along his trusted partner, Salty the Parrot! Prost, Duke and congrats on ROY22. See you in '23.
Davey Boy spread gumutlichkeit throughout the HackerFestzelt and won the Hackermeister award (HAM) for Veteran of the Year!!
Davey Boy had his best year yet. The guys all recognized him for having a great smile and spreading the Hacker Herren love throughout the group and the entire tent and beyond. He was up early and out late with that huge smile. Continuing the party even after the Wiesn was closed while enjoying a Rum and Coke with Blitz along with his doner sandwich. Congrats, Davey Boy. I'm sure Frannie is very proud of you. Can't wait until the grandkids are 21!!!

The Lord Mayor announced that Oktoberfest will happen in 2022 as originally planned. This should be a Wiesn as normal Oktoberfest. There will not be any restrictions. We have over 100 guys joining our group this year. First time we will be over 100 people. Not sure how we will pull it off, but I do know that we will pull it off. We have such a great group of veterans/leaders that we will ensure all the guys have a great trip. We will be staying 61 people at Ars Vivendi and 40 people at Hotel Seibel. All the rookies will be at the Ars Vivendi.
We are working on the schwag with @dencoincorporated again this year. We will be looking good again with our custom shirts.
This year we will be hosting two members from the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce. It'll be their first visit to Oktoberfest Munich. Amazing that they do such a great job putting on the largest Oktoberfest in USA, but never have been to Munich Ofest. They will have a great time. They did a great job hosting us last year when we had our Oktoberfest on US Soil for the first time.
Hopefully you will begin training early so that we don't miss a step once we arrive in Munich this year.
Prost and stay tuned!

The Hacker Herren will be the official keg tappers at some of the Oktoberfest tents in Zinzinnati. We are going to have another awesome year and take advantage of the biggest Oktoberfest of 2021 being in the Queen City and the sister city to Munich. Vido will demonstrate his legendary status inside the tents in Cincinnati so that he will be a legend on two continents! Bad Monkey, Jon Sanchez has done a great job of working with the leadership of Oktoberfest in Cincinnati and the Chamber of Commerce to help us put together a world class itinerary for the 3 day weekend. The schwag will be awesome once again and we will make some new friends and renew some old friendships. Hope to see you there Sept 16-18, 2021.

Plan B Hacker Herren Oktoberfest 2021 will be held in Cincinnati, OH on Sept 16,17, 18, 2021!!! This year it will be the largest Oktoberfest in the world since Munich is still on hiatus. Of course, the Hacker Herren only goes to the biggest and the BEST Oktoberfest. It was going to be good... Now with the Hacker Herren, it will be GREAT! We expect to have over 100 Hacker Herren along with wives, GF, SO's and daughters attend this awesome party over the weekend. This will be an outstanding weekend for the whole gang! The Oktoberfest Zinzinnati committee has embraced the Hacker Herren and are going above and beyond to provide us with an AWESOME VIP +++ Experience. Save the dates. More info to follow shortly. Price should be around the same as in the Munich Oktoberfest so budget accordingly. We are so excited to see everyone for the first time in way too long. No passport needed this year... Just be ready to laugh, sing, dance, and hug one another as we share the gemutlichkeit with our friends in Munich's sister city, Cincinnati!!

The Hacker Herren are a diverse and fun group of guys from all over the world. They are proud to be part of this great group and aren't afraid to show their pride by wearing their Hacker Herren shirts and/or lederhosen in some interesting places. Where is the most fun place you've worn yours?? Send pix and lets enjoy the fun times together since we weren't able to enjoy Oktoberfest this year. We can stay connected in other way.
|Alex (Smitty) Smith was able to negotiate a great deal in his lederhosen. |
|Roy X wins the award for looking the best in his Trachten. Hopefully, as his little ghosts and goblins get older, he can return to the Wies'n|
|Sparty knows how to party. May not be wearing lederhosen, but he has a bang up outfit|
|K-Bax and Kopenhagen may have left their lederhosen behind, but they sure know how to enjoy a mass|
