Cancel all your October plans and start saving your hard-earned cash in preparation for next weekend because the Oktoberfest event to end them all is happening on the Coast. And we’re mildly pumped to say the least.
Yes, you did indeed read that right. For one glorious beer-filled day only, Munich will descend on the Coast and this year’s festivities are set to be the best yet.
We’re probably most excited about the beer hall. It’s the biggest the Sunshine Coast has ever seen! Just imagine tossing back a few steins with friends, while simultaneously munching on an oversized pork knuckle. It’s bliss. Actual bliss we tell you.
In addition to various beers being available on tap there will also be a wide variety of ciders, cocktails and wine. (So something for everyone). And after all that booze you’ll want something to balance you out. Let us suggest a visit to the German Sausage Hut, where all your naughtiest food fantasies will be realised. We’re talking Bratwurst, Frankfurter, Debreciner or even Cheese-Kransky, not to mention heaping on all your toppings, from traditional sauerkraut and onions, to bacon and cheese. We’re feeling full just thinking about the endless possibilities.
So, throw on your best lederhosen or dirndl and head over to the fest. We’ll see you there.
