The most wonderful time of the beer is here once again! Singapore’s most authentic and largest Bavarian Festival, Oktoberfest Asia 2015 is back by popular demand for the third year running! It gets bigger and better with each subsequent year, and this year’s celebrations takes the cake with freeflow beer all night long and a sumptuous buffet spread.
"Anyone can drink beer, but it takes intelligence to enjoy beer" Stephen Beaumont, one of the world's most authoritative voices on beer, once wisely remarked. There is a huge difference between getting blind drunk by mindlessly chugging beer and getting blind drunk from over-indulging in the tastes and aromas of good beers. Oktoberfest Asia 2015 that will be held at Marina at Keppel Bay (Keppel Island) from 8 to 10 October 2015 is just the place for the latter. Ticket prices start at $80 onwards per pax.
An exclusively customized 500ml Stein Glass will be given to you before you enter the doors and step into beer paradise. Six different Bavarian beer taps will be flowing for free from 6pm to midnight just like the beer waterfalls in your dreams. Beers from Bavaria's finest breweries – Schneider Weisse, Paulaner Brauhaus, Weihenstephan, Kloster Weltenburger and Dreamfields will satisfy your thirst at Oktoberfest Asia 2015, along with a freeflow of soft drinks. Revelers who wish to mix up their drinks can also find Jagermeister, Champagne and Wine bars located within.
Of course, chugging beer goes along hand in hand with feasting, which is why for the first time ever in Oktoberfest Asia, you are invited to pile as much food as you want onto your plate and keep going back for seconds at the all-you-can-eat gourmet Bavarian buffet that operates from 6.30pm to 9pm. The buffet menu has been specially curated by Chef Josef Nagler of Weisses Bräuhaus Munich, an authentic German restaurant in Munich that specialises in beer infused dishes. Indulge in traditional dishes such as Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle), Bratwurst mit Sauerkraut, fish, chicken and other various German food.
For five whole hours, an authentic Bavarian band that will be specially flown in from the Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich itself will bring Bavarian culture to you with musical ballads and folk dances. This seasoned Oktoberfest band has captivated the German audience for 24 years at the world famous Hofbräuhausin Munich. Their repertoire of traditional melodies and jolly Bavarian dance music is fantastic and world renowned. The Original Hofbräuhaus Show will feature a yodelling queen, shoeslap dancers, bell ringers, whip crackers and alipine hornplayers while the Bavarian music, Oompah music and dancing music will rise the audience to their feet and have them dancing on the tables to the Oktoberfest dance moves. A lucky draw will be held everynight for raffle prizes and you can pit yourselves against friends or strangers in the games area (of course there is beer pong in case you ask).
Oktoberfest Asia 2015's strategic location makes it perfect for all kinds of occasions – boys' night out, girls' night out, gathering of friends, dates, anniversaries, birthdays and even company functions. There is ample car-parking (however if you are drinking, we advise you not to drive), easy coach access and taxi pick up and drop off. It is hidden away from the hustle and bustle of city life with a private garden ambience and 180 degree waterfront views. The main marquee tent is fully air-conditoned and furnished with a main glass wall that overlooks Sentosa. If the celebrations get a little bit too loud and crowded, you can step out to have a drink under the stars and enjoy the cool ocean breeze anytime you wish.
Early bird ticket prices and standard tickets start from $80 per pax and up at SISTIC
from 8 Oct – 10 Oct 2015. In case you have not paid attention, one ticket entitles you to an Oktoberfest Asia 2015 Stein Glass sounevir, freeflow beer, all-you-can-eat buffet, a night of authentic Bavarian festivities, a true blue Munchen band, an atmosphere that rivals Oktoberfest parties all around the globe, and the time of your life.
