OKTOBERFEST AT HILLCREST QUARRY
The traditional Oktoberfest Cape Town brought to you by Namibia Breweries is around the corner! The event promises a perfect combination of great German food, games & activities, world-class entertainment and excellent Namibian beer, brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot, the 1516 Bavarian Purity Law. Friday night is for over 18s only and on Saturday you can bring your kids for a family day out.
Oktoberfest is the world`s largest beer festival, celebrated annually in Munich, Germany. Today other cities across the world also hold Oktoberfest celebrations that are modelled on the original Munich event. Here in South Africa, one of the most incredible venues in Cape Town, Hillcrest Quarry in Durbanville Winelands, will play host to the official Oktoberfest Cape Town brought to you by Namibian Breweries.
The Opening Of The Keg
The opening of the keg will take place on the Friday night. With the exclamation “O`zapft is!” (“It`s tapped!”), the first beer is handed to the mayor of the city who then declares the Oktoberfest officially open.
What makes the Oktoberfest Cape Town extra special is that all the beers on offer have been brewed according to this law, so their quality is unmatched. There will be a special “Festbier” available which is brewed specially for the Oktoberfest by braumeister Christian Mϋller. Also available will be the Stellenbrau Jonkers Weissbier.
Highlights over the weekend, among others, include the 500 years celebration of the Reinheitsgebot and performances by the Kirchdorfer band. They have been the official band in the “Hacker-Festzelt” at the Oktoberfest in Munich since 1994 and will be flying in straight from there to perform at the Cape Town Oktoberfest.
Traditional German food on the menu will include Schweine Haxn (Pork Knuckle); Schweinebraten (Pork Roast), Bretzn (Pretzels), Weisswurst, Bratwurst, Obatzda and much more.
