San Miguel Corporation, the organizers of the Oktoberfest 2008, is all ready and set to break the existing world record for the longest beer bar in the world.
The current record in the Guinness book of world records is 240 meters held by Taiwan.
San Miguel is aiming for a staggering 600 meters in total, stretching along the length of San Miguel Avenue and winding down to Julia Vargas Avenue in Ortigas, Mandaluyong City. It is one of the main attractions of the San Miguel Oktoberfest kick-off party slated today.
The event, which will also feature four stages and around 40 local bands and artists, will also attempt to set a world record for the largest beer-toasting crowd. Third Eye Blind will be featured as one of the main acts. Dubbed “San Miguel Oktoberfest 120,” the event launches the longest-ever celebration of the world-renowned festival, now extended to 120 days.
