Oktoberfest records include lost dentures

October 8th, 2007 | Posted by Real Beer

Munich’s Oktoberfest closed Sunday, setting a daily record for beer consumption at 419,000 liters, up from 383,000 in 2006.

Organizers reported it attracted 6.2 million visitors who drank 6.7 million liters (the equivalent of 11 million pints) of beer, ate 104 oxen and lost three sets of false teeth. Some 50 lost children were also recovered.

“Without wanting to put a gloss on it, this really was a great Oktoberfest,” Munich Mayor Christian Ude told a news conference.
