Durban Bierfest 2012

The annual Bierfest will take place for the first time in Durban this year – after huge success in Joburg & Cape Town. The festival aims to recreate the atmosphere, activities, entertainment  – and of course the beer – of Munich’s historically famous Oktoberfest. Get down to Suncoast between 16th and 18thNovember to join in the festivities.

SAB have even had their master brewers create three limited edition special Bavarian-style beers for the festival – the Munich Dunkel (with hints of chocolate, caramel and toffee dominated by malt, with a deep copper to dark brown colour and creamy, light to medium tan head), Krystal Weiss (a filtered version of the usually slightly cloudy weiss beers with vanilla undertones and slight hop aromas) and the easy drinking Royal Bavaria (a rich dark gold with a slight off white foam head, with low hop flavours and a moderately dry finish)

You’ll be seated inside a 2500 seater ‘Bavarian Brauhaus’ and served in traditional style by costumed ‘fräuleins’ with fistfuls of beer steins to wash down authentic food like eisbein, sausage, pickles, pretzels and sauerkraut – all accompanied by the sounds of a stomping oompah band!

There will also be fun tests of strength and skill in traditional-style Oktoberfest challenges including a ‘hau den lukas’ – a bell-ringing slideshow attraction and a competition for the best-dressed King Ludwig and Princess.

Fri 16th Nov 2012, 6pm – 11pm
Sat 17th Nov 2012, 11am – 4pm (Session 1)
Sat 17th Nov 2012, 6pm – 11pm (Session 2)
Sun 18th Nov 2012, 12pm – 5pm
Tickets are R 70 each, in either unreserved or reserved seating.
Tables of 12 or more will automatically be entered into a draw for a trip for two to the 2013 Munich Oktoberfest. All purchases of food and drink at the festival will be transacted with ‘crowns’ which are available in denominations of R20 and sold in packs of five.
