Wiesn 2022 welcomed us back with open arms. It was our 30th anniversary!!! It was so great to see so many old friends and made many new friends. We had 100 guys from around the USA and Europe and S America. Duke took home the prestigious ROY award and Davey Boy was a great winner of the HAM award. Both guys were up early, out late, and spreading gemutlichkeit. We were featured on ARD TV and BR24 TV channels in Germany.

Hacker Herren will be a Man Down in 2018-Rookie John Hough (Der Stier)
I have never been so certain that i knew who the Rookie of the Year was going to be. John talked about Oktoberfest and thought about Oktoberfest almost every single day. I visited with him in Seattle and he found a bar that sold Hacker Pschorr Munich Gold on tap so that we could train together. In this picture, he was breaking in his lederhosen with his beautiful wife, Sara. He was so passionate about joining the Hacker Herren and was already recruiting his buddies for 2019 (remember, he has never even been yet!). We will all hoist a maß for you, John. RIP. See you in the clouds inside the tent, Der Stier. Prost!
Here are some of the pictures that he has sent to me over the months of his training... I'm sure it'll give you a sense of how excited he was to join the Hacker Herren
