Nobody raises their mug until the Mayor says so

The festival has only started after the official gun salute and the mayor shouting O’ zapft is! (“It’s tapped!”) and offering the first mug to the Minister-President of the State of Bavaria. Only after that, can the festival start.

The beer is specially brewed for Oktoberfest and it’s extra strong. One mug of beer here is equivalent to 8 shots of Schnapps.
