Drinkers at Oktoberfest in Munich consumed a record amount of beer during the festival’s 200th jubilee celebration.

About 6.4 million visitors — well below the high mark of 7.1 million in 1985 — drank seven million liters (1.6 million gallons) of beer. They also ate 117 oxen, 59 calves and thousands of chickens.
