Cape Town Bierfest

2012-09-04 15:46
Dates: 13 - 16 September

If you can't quite afford a trip to Munich for the famous Oktoberfest, the good news is, something equally awesome will be happening at the Newlands Brewery in Cape Town this year.

Closely resembling the Oktoberfest in Munich, The Bierfest in Cape Town promises to be an authentic Bavarian festival complete with limited edition beers brewed exclusively for the event, German food and even Oompah bands!

"The Bierfest is a recreation of traditional Bavarian beer festivals," says Andrew Douglas, Director of The Entertainment Group (TEG), producers of the event. "Halls will be draped in traditional style and guests can enjoy an array of Bavarian cuisine supplied by the finest local purveyors of German food, be served by Fraulein while listening to an entertainment lineup."

While you could book single tickets, organisers advise booking for groups of 12 in order to secure a table. Tickets cost R85 per person and you would also need to make sure you exchange your Rands for Crowns, the official currency of Bierfest. A pack of crowns will cost you R100.
