86 men from around the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 27th year. The Rookie of the Year (ROY) for 2019 hails from Atlanta. Congrats to Skip King. He really embraced the gemutlichkeit that makes Oktoberfest the special place that it is. I was humbled to have the Veteran of the year, Hackermeister (HAM) awarded to me (Ken Bloom) The guys really made me feel special on the occasion and MoJoe did a great job presenting the Vest to me.

Chive On, Taylor Steinbeck is 2014 Rookie of the Year
Taylor Steinbeck brings the ROY 14 award back to the 909! His father was the original ROY for the Hacker Herren. Taylor made his old man proud by bring the prestigious hat home with him. He fell in love at least 3x/day (and broke lots of Frauleins' hearts), enjoyed the great Hacker Pschorr beer, and mingled with all of the guys throughout the weekend. He was up early each day, at the tent at opening and stayed until the closing. He lived the Oktoberfest Spirit for all three days. Congrats Taylor Steinbeck, ROY 14.
