80 men from around the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 26th year. RigoBigo (Rigo Bororquez) brought the ROY hat back to the 909. He's the third winner from the Inland Empire, Corona, CA. MoJoe (Joe Ullrich) easily won the HAM award for the veteran of the year. Both guys exhibited the spirit of "gemutlichkeit" at Oktoberfest. The friendliness, openness, and spirit of good times that makes Oktoberfest the magical season that it is.

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.
