OCTOBERFEST GIRL

A reunion with the brewery owner Antonia from the family saga The Brewery on the River Isar

Munich in September 1901: it is not unusual for beer to be stolen at Oktoberfest. But when the owner of the brewery house Brucknerbräu witnesses how a farm girl wants to steal a run-down horse from the unscrupulous brewer Hopf, her curiosity is aroused. Before she knows it, Antonia helps little Mina and the two of them are caught up in an adventure that allows them to see the friendship between man and animal with new eyes; and the magic of the unique folk festival with its show booths, fragrant sweets and countless amusements. Because there is only one such festival in the whole world: at the Wiesn in Munich under the gaze of the Bavaria statue.

Julia Freidank

Julia Freidank is the pseudonym of a much published author of novels and non-fiction books. As a native of Munich, she’s always been extremely interested in the fascinating history of her hometown. Since Munich without its brewing culture would be unthinkable, it was only a matter of time before she penned something about one of its brewery pubs. The result is this richly-coloured family saga, which began with the previous release The Brewery on the Banks of the Isar: Fateful Game.
