It’s no big deal but we are having our first OKTOBERFEST celebration on Wednesday, October 6th from 5-8 pm.
The event features the release of our first FESTBIER! This beauty lager will be draught only plus you get to drink it straight out of a Winterlong branded stein. Throw in some tasty German-inspired food for the fest and this is what beer garden dreams are made of!
What is a Festbier?
This beer style is a German lager made for drinking! It showcases German malt flavours without being too heavy or filling. Hop character is on the light side and the lager is smooth and clean. The 'fest' part of the name stems from the fact that it is currently the main style of beer served at Oktoberfest in Munich.
Our take on this modern German beer features mostly German Pilsner malt with some Vienna, Victory and Munich malts for the classic crackery, bread dough and lightly toasty malt character without being too sweet. It will leave you wanting more.
We will have some pouring outside in the beer garden as well as on tap inside.
We are putting together a fantastic lineup of German-inspired foods, sourced from local producers. Think share platters, with some vegetarian and vegan options as well.
This event will be a ticketed event. As with all our events, it will be a family-friendly, and there will be a 'Beer Drinker' Ticket and a 'Non-Beer Drinker' Ticket option.
