FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) -- In Germany, where a good beer is not just quaffed but cherished, the price of doing so at Munich's annual Oktoberfest is on the rise - again.
Organizers of the annual event said Friday that the average price for a liter of beer inside the famed tents will break through the euro7 (US$8.84) barrier for the first time this year, rising to euro7.06 (US$8.92).
After surveying two dozen groups selling beer at the event in Munich this year, organizers found that they planned to charge between euro6.80 (US$8.59) and euro7.25 (US$9.16). (B-2, Undtd)
