O’zapft is! - Pfiat di / Sayonara und Grüß Gott / Konnichiwa!

On July 21, 2022, after a break of almost two and a half years due to the Corona pandemic, a get-together for the representatives of the Japanese business community in Bavaria took place in the small "Ratstrinkstube" in the Munich City Hall at Marienplatz in cooperation with the Japanese Consulate General Munich, the City of Munich, JETRO Munich and the Japan Club Munich.

On this occasion, the former representative of the Free State of Bavaria in Japan, Dr. Christian Geltinger, was bid farewell to the Japanese community and the new representative, Ms. Susanne Schierok, was introduced. Symbolically, the mallet was handed over from the former representative to the new representative and the beer keg was tapped, which was brewed by the Munich breweries for the 50th anniversary celebration of the city partnership Munich - Sapporo.
