This will not be happening.
Bayern Munich lost for the third time in seven matches on Sunday, this time going down 2-0 to Borussia Dortmund. That makes for one of the worst starts in the club's history and they're not happy about that. There has to be consequences for this kind of disappointment and those consequences are severe.
From the AFP:
After one of their worst ever starts to a season, German giants Bayern Munich will not be making their traditional visit to their home city's world-famous beer festival, the club said Monday.
"Due to the sporting situation, coach Louis van Gaal has decided there will be training at 11:30am instead," the club said in a terse statement.
Visiting the beer festival "would not make any sense now", Bayern's sporting director Christian Nerlinger told the regional tabloid TZ, after seeing his team slump to a second straight league defeat at Dortmund on Sunday.
That's right -- Oktoberfest has been called off for Bayern. No lederhosen for Lahm, no beer chugging competitions for Olic and Schweinsteiger, no eating knackwurst to the point of vomiting on the sidewalk for van Bommel. And in place of all that fun, there will be training.
At the very least, van Gaal should let them train in lederhosen, though.
