As you can imagine, I get my fair share of requests from PR companies looking to promote this that and the other thing on my blog. For the most part, brewery press releases excluded, these pitches are either irrelevant to the goals of my site and less than appealing (ok, most of them are junk). But, from time to time, I find some of these emails to be rather amusing and sharable.
I recently received an email about an Oktoberfest Inforgraphic. As the beer wench and a lover of all things German, I was intrigued. Furthermore, the creators of the infographic stated: “This infographic shows interesting facts about the Oktoberfest – the world’s largest beer fest – including a detailed map of the area and some guidelines to dress properly bavarian-style for this occasion. Furthermore the infographic gives advice about interesting places to visit in Munich.” And then I became more intrigued.
Until, of course, I clicked on the infographic to learn that it was written completely in German. Despite barely being able to decipher a word on it, I still found the infographic festive and fun — and entertaining enough to share. Hopefully you will too!
