Oktoberfest is Here!
What's on tap?
With the beginning of October, we're enjoying Oktoberfest in full swing!
Originating on October 12th, 1810, the festival began as a celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I and consists of eating a whole lot of food (Sausages and Grilled Chickens are a staple!), dancing and of course, drinking a whole lot of beer!
The original festival takes place in Munich and typically hosts over 6 million visitors over 2 weeks. With most of us celebrating locally, we've got a list of things to do in Hong Kong to celebrate Oktoberfest!
(Keep checking back for updates!)
Throughout October, Beerliner will have a special combo available at both their Langham Place and Tuen Mun Town Plaza locations. For $298 per set, including an Erdinger Dunkel or Erdinger Weissbier, order a crusted dry-aged rib-eye steak with thyme-butter sauce, smoked salmon cake, and potato salad, or roasted suckling pig with smoked pork loin, pork cheeks in stout sauce, mashed potato, and salad.
