75 men from around the US (and Europe) convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 23rd year. Devil Dog, Shawn Fritz exhibited the "gemutlichkeit" of the new ROY17 and will enjoy the coveted ROY hat for the next year. Long overdue, 7 aka VI took home the HAM17 award as veteran of the year!! Congrats to both. The Spirit of Ofest was ever present. No wonder this group continues to get more popular.

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.
