Montana-Cans and Flying Fortress pays homage to Oktoberfest
Special MontanaCans BLACKBRÄU Edition – O’zapft is! There is one festival on the planet that everybody knows about, including the team at Montana-Cans. Since 1810, the Bavarian capital of Munich has celebrated the internationally renowned, “Oktoberfest”. The festival which runs from mid to late September until the first weekend in October. It was originally created to celebrate the marriage of the Crown Prince Ludwig with Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Today it is an international celebration of all things beer, festivities, the colors light blue & white and Sausage dogs (Dachshund). Thats right, Sausage dogs.
The Dachshund is part of the Bavarian psyche. The stubborn little four legged creature shares a lot of traits and characteristics with it’s Bavarian folk. Characteristics like loyalty, inquisitiveness, assertiveness and determination. And did I mention they were stubborn? At Oktoberfest the Dachshund get hailed by the crowd and the „Dackel” even have their own dog-raceing!
We welcome the release of the special edition Montana BLACK, LIGHT BLUE -5030 (Bavarian Blue Edition). We like to call it the BLACK Bräu “Oktober” edition which also celebrates our proud Made In Germany ethos. There was no better artist to create the artwork for such a delicate spraycan than FLYING FÖRTRESS. Born and raised in Munich and even now living up North in Hamburg, he is no stranger to the joys of drinking beer and the beauty of the legendary blue colored Bavarian sky! FÖRTRESS is maybe almost as famous to the world graffiti community as Oktoberfest is known to beer lovers. It doesn’t stop there though. As an integral member of the JBCB crew and purveyor of all things cool, FÖRTRESS’s work extends also far into illustration, apparel and collectible vinyl toy design. With Beer & Bavaria in his blood, the integration of the iconic “Dackel” was just a logical step for him as an Oktoberfest insider.
We are proud to share the Montana BLACK “Oktober” edition Light Blue-5030. A touch of a Bavarian Blue in a homage to our favourite Volksfest. „Prost!”..
