On Saturday, the mayor of Munich will tap the first keg of Oktoberfest beer with the cry "O'zapft is!" ("It's tapped!") Local bars and beer halls are gearing up for the weeks-long celebration. Gordon Biersch gets the party started a little early with tonight's tapping of its annual Oktoberfest beer. The annual affair features the ceremonial tapping of a wooden keg of beer, an oompah band, free appetizers and, of course, giant liter mugs known in Germany as a Mass, each of which holds a whopping 33 ounces of beer. The party runs from 6 to 9, and there's no cover charge, though beers cost about $12.
