IT’S no coincidence that in the world of beer, good things come in sixes. It’s why we have the six pack and why the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest celebrates its sixth year as South Africa’s favourite, proudly national annual touring festival of Bavarian bier culture.

With a new venue, refreshed festival layout and an expanded entertainment programme, Tops at SPAR Bierfest 2016 invites you to get in touch with your inner Germaniac, lug on the lederhosen, dust off the dirndls and get ready to party with oompah from Friday 30 September to Saturday 1 October.

The TOPS at SPAR Bierfest brings with it barrels of bier to Sibaya. Whether you’re 18 or 80, a loslappie or a Heidi-wannabe, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest brings together the best elements of the legendary Bavarian Oktoberfest in a uniquely South African setting.

Amid a menu packed with traditional Bavarian food will again be the legendary one litre (half-litre for the ladies) steins of freshly brewed Bavarian recipe craft biers, traditional Oktoberfest games, competitions, oompah music, party pop rock favourites and a chance to win a trip to the Oktoberfest in Munich 2017.

As with all its events, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest supports responsible drinking and will have a range of options on hand to make getting home safe, resulting in a

hassle-free and affordable experience. #DrinkSmart!
