Official Tapping of the Keg

Thursday, September 18th at 8:00 p.m.

Join Town of Addison Mayor Todd Meier and local dignitaries on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. in the Schloss Addison tent for the Opening Ceremonies. Mayor Meier will officially tap the first keg of Paulaner from Germany by hammering the bronze spout into the keg with a wooden mallet. The trick is to do so without spilling any bier!

Sing along to "Ein Pro-sit" and "No Beer in Heaven" as the festival officially gets underway.

Ein Pro-Sit
Ein Pro-sit, ein Prosit
Der Ge-muet-luch-keit,
Ein Pro-sit, ein Pro-sit
Der Ge-muet-lich-keit!
No Beer in Heaven
In Heaven, there is no beer
That's why we drink it here.
And when we're gone from here, Our friends will be drinking all the beer!
