So this is what it’s all about:

Oktober Bierfest is modelled on the world renowned “Oktoberfest” – Europe’s largest fair attracting 5 million people each year.

An authentic Bavarian Bier Hall will greet guests upon arrival. Bavarian themed draping, bunting and décor adorn every inch of the bier hall…literally transporting you to another place and time. You will be seated on sturdy wooden bier benches with fellow revellers on the path to merriment as the live Oompah band blows your blues away.

Genuine Bavarian Fraulein will deliver fistfuls of frothing Bavarian-styled bier crafted by brew masters from The South African Breweries Ltd. Raith Gourmet, South Africa’s finest purveyors of German food, will provide a feast of Bavarian fare ranging from cold meats, a selection of German sausages, pork knuckles, chicken schnitzel, sauerkraut and giant pretzels.
