Oktoberfest will take place this weekend on the west side of the Arkansas River.
There are numerous changes going on this year, but one of the big ones is getting rid of the pitchers and bringing in the stein.
"One of the biggest things this year, there are no pitchers. They wanted to get away from people having an excess amount of beer" said officer Craig Murray.
Festival director Tonja Carrig explains the change, "This is authentic to Munich, Germany. Theirs are glass, ours are acrylic and ours you get to take home."
So far, people seem to like the change.
"They are very nice, they look prettier, but they should be bigger," said Sally Rhode.
"There are a lot of pitchers that go unused and the stein is more authentic and I think that's a good change," said Jefferson Davis.
The stein can be purchased at admission, merchandise, or when you buy a drink.
