"Oktoberfest: Blood and Beer", the new Netflix series

This year the mythical beer festival, Oktoberfest, will not be held, not even in Germany, where it has been celebrated for more than 200 years. This will be a strange year for the Bavarian city of Munich, where last year's Oktoberfest celebration welcomed around 6 million people. The celebration is usually held from the second half of September and during October. In return, to fill this gap, Netflix offers us from October 1, 2020 the series "Oktoberfest: Blood and Beer".

The Serie

Set in Munich in 1900, directed by Hannu Salonen and starring well-known artists on German television and theater. The thriller is based on a true story with some fictitious changes to avoid rights issues.

The story begins with an ambitious project by the brewer Curt Prank, who seeks at all costs to dominate the Oktoberfest celebration in the city, his tactics are violent and unorthodox. In turn, his daughter Clara falls in love with a humble brewmaster, who does not allow himself to be bent by his father's pretense.

Curt Prank proposes the reinvention of Oktoberfest, with the construction of a tent for 6000 people, 20 times the size of traditional stalls. The project involves a fierce struggle between beer dynasties. The series shows historical events of the time, such as nationalism, industrial advancement or the struggle of women for freedom.

The first season is now available on Netflix with six chapters of about 47 minutes each. The series has a quality production and a good setting, both in the costumes and in the set design. It is listed as a non-English speaking period drama. Some critics have already called it "a shortened, German version of Peaky Blinders."

This year we will not be able to enjoy Oktoberfest among tents, overflowing jugs and happy songs, but we will be able to learn more about its history and tradition thanks to this new installment from Netflix.
