5 Top Beer Apps for Oktoberfest

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) - There may be approximately 2,000 "Oktoberfests" organized annually throughout the world, according to the official site of Munich, but the German city's Oktoberfest, which is currently underway, trumps all of them.

The three-week long festival, hosted on 26 acres near Munich City Center, will welcome about 6 million beer lovers, employ 12,000 workers and generate an estimated 1 billion Euros for the city.

Dating back to 1810, when Bavarian Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Sachsen-Hildburghausen in an epic five-day wedding celebration, the Munich Oktoberfest is said to be the largest folk festival in the world.

But don't be fooled by sightings of Bavarian lederhosen, dirndls, and the limited menu of bratwursts, pork knuckles and chicken - Not all of the traditions at the original Oktoberfest are two-centuries old. In fact, TheStreet recommends that the most devoted beer festival fans download these five Apple ( AAPL) iPad apps to fully tap into the fun (responsibly, of course):
