Prost is one of the most well known drinking toasts in the world. Considering that the oldest brewery in the world is in Germany, we think it's easy to understand why. There's even a book entitled, "Prost! The Story of German Beer", writer by Horst D. Dornbusch. Prost to that!
Oktoberfest, at least in Munich, is Sat, Sep 16, 2023 – Tue, Oct 3, 2023. This is according to OktoberfesetTours.
Say Prost! Sounds simple, right? Many people dive right into taking a sip because their a) impatient or b) thirsty or c) impatient and thirsty. It's generally not a lack of respect because most people simply don't know the proper rules of etiquette. We blame Budweiser.
Know Your Neighbor. Don't be shy. Look around. See who you are drinking with. Lock eyes. Celebrate the glory.
Prost is a great name to build a drinking establishment around. As you can see the United States does not lack for places with the word "Prost" in their name.
