beer pouring

        It seems like only yesterday when Richie and I cheered and celebrated this famous worldwide beer festival with a big mug of...iced tea. (True story. What can we do? We're not really beer drinkers. But that doesn't mean we can't join the fun, right? Hehehe)

And just like that, it's Oktoberfest once again!

        And if you're looking to celebrate an authentic German beer festival here in the Metro, head on to Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila on October 17-18 and join the German Club Manila as they cerebrate the 76th Oktoberfest! Party with the world famous original Hofbräuhaus band from Munich! And yodel along with Lizzie, an internationally acclaimed female yodeller! (Yodelehi--hooooo!)

        On October 17-18, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila’s Harbor Garden Tent will be transformed into a beer garden, or "Biergärten" as they call it in Germany. Set up will be these long tables and benches.

        See your friendly waiters and waitresses in dirndl and Lederhosen for that complete Oktoberfest feel.

        And of course, what is Oktoberfest without huge mugs and free flowing ice cold San Miguel beer!?!


        To accompany your ice cold beer, Sofitel Philippine Plaza's Master Chefs will be preparing an amazing Bavarian spread, which includes not just pretzels and sausages, but a whole lot of other stuff as well! 

Here's what they served during the launch...

I love their pretzels! Because it's drizzled in rock salt!

        This festival will also include exciting raffles with millions worth of prizes to be won! The ticket fee for this Oktoberfest is not just for a night of partying and merry-making. But proceeds of this festival will actually go to the German Club’s welfare/charity projects.
