    Great article, apart from the bit about calling the use of the word 'Stein'... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_stein You would order a Mass (i.e. the measurement of beer they serve in a Krug). A Bavarian would never call it a Stein... as this refers to stoneware which isn't what they serve beer in at the Wies'n (which is what the locals call Oktoberfest, probably worth mentioning that too for anyone likely to go to avoid confusion as it takes place at the Theresienwiese).
