Much to our delight, beer festivals are all the rage and
hardly a weekend goes by without a hops-induced event.
This weekend Montecasino plays host to South Africa’s largest Oktoberfest-styled event,
the TOPS at SPAR BIERFEST. Not only can revelers sip on specially-crafted
Bavarian biers in the 4000-seater Brauhaus, they can also feast on fine
Bavarian cuisine, dress-up in lederhosen, pigtails and dirndls, and dance to
ridiculously infectious oompah beats!
Attendees will be partaking in a 204-year old tradition that began
in Munich, Germany. History has it that when Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig
married Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen on October 12, 1810, he invited the entire city
of Munich to what eventually became the world’s biggest after-party.
Founding partner South African Breweries have once more called upon their
Master Brewers to craft three special, limited edition Bavarian-styled biers just for Bierfest.
The ever-popular Royal Bavaria Oktoberfest Bier, the traditional Krystal Weiss
Protea Edelweiss and the speciality dark ale - the King Ludwig Munich Dunkel.
Master Brewers will be located onsite for tasting and bier education at Bierfest’s
Braumeister Ecke (a.k.a Brewmasters’ Corner).
