TOPS at SPAR BIERFEST - #WIN tickets for 24-26 Oct MonteCasino, Johannesburg

Hi Guys,

Dust off the dirndl and lederhosen, serve up some würst and sip on some foamy bier—it's Oktoberfest time again! Although the 16-day Munich festival began on September 20, the celebration is just getting started in Joburg, as Bierfest has returned to Montecasino for two weekends, 17th – 19th October & 24th-26th October. One weekend has already passed and this is the last one to be there and enjoy!!!
TOPS at SPAR BIERFEST is South Africa’s biggest, annual, national, Oktoberfest festival of fun, food, Frauleins and of course –biers! This event happens in association with DRYVER, Good Fellas, JIGUJA, Jagermeister, Associated Printing and Tsogo Sun. It is more than just an excuse to get together in a 4000-seater Brauhaus over a weekend at Montecasino with your nearest and dearest to imbibe quality, specially -crafted Bavarian biers! It’s also a feast of fine Bavarian cuisine, an opportunity to dress-up in lederhosen, pigtails and dirndls, its dancing to the ridiculously infectious oompah beats and letting loose while singing “Heidi!” at the top of your lungs.
Historical significance of this is 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. From the moment one enters the Brauhaus, the senses are assailed by a rich mixture of traditional Bavarian oompah music (played live by a seven-piece band throughout the day), beautifully coloured décor, the aroma of Bavarian cuisine and of course - our freshly brewed Biers – made but once a year for the occassion.
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 specialty 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).
Frauleins in traditional attire will greet you with smiles as you are escorted to your table and thereafter ensuring that your Bierfest experience is nothing short of magical. More than just a beer festival, Bierfest places great care and consideration in its meal choices for hungry Bierfestarians! Bierfest menu caters to all tastes, from the succulent eisbeins to healthy vegetarian options and delectable platters.
A smorgasbord of traditional Oktoberfest challenges will be on offer to test your strength and skill. A new feature is the “snuff kanon!” This device with its medieval origins does exactly what its name suggest – it is a cannon that shoots snuff.
From the moment you are seated until the moment your tired legs take you home, Bierfest is the one event you will attend this year that will have you longing to be back next year too! Value for money, and every moment an entertainment extravaganza, Bierfest will rock you!
Standard Bier Hall Ticket: only R125 per person includes entrance to the event, along with a complimentary bier tasting. All tickets can be booked through the Bierfest website or through Bierfest’s Facebook page - SABierfest has been offered to give 4 double tickets to it's readers for any day between 24-26th Oct 2014 in Montecasino (conditions apply).  Contest ends 24 Oct Friday at 0200pm.

    Abstinence diminishes, discriminates and says no. Beer makes u expand, unite and say yes. It is the greatest exciter of the Yes function in Man..Beer is art, Beer is connectivity, Beer is personal, Beer is history. Enough said and enough reasons given why I would be spotted at a corner relishing man's own gift to mankind.
