Thanks for looking, all. As for the beer, I have never found the beer  
served at Oktoberfests (Munich, Stuttgart and now Calpe) particularly  
strong, but of course when your frame of reference are Belgian beers  
like Duvel, Kwak or Delirium, then everything else is just a light,  
refreshing beverage :-)
