Oktoberfest in Singapore
Oktoberfest is a three-week festival held each year in Munich, Bavaria, Germany during late September and early October. It begin in 1810 to celebrate the wedding of their Crown Prince. Well, the people of Munich really love to party and has been partying every year for the past 197 years.
Some people claims that Oktoberfest is a tourist trap and the food and beer sold were more expensive compared to normal days. Not quite sure if that is true. Well, who cares? So long as there is good food and beer.
I was at Vivo City last Saturday afternoon when I remember that Brotzeit (That great place which serve Paulaner Beer at Vivo City's waterfront) is having a Oktoberfest celebration for the weekend. So I went over to check it out. Imagine having beer and meat for lunch. Shoik.
Ordered their pork knuckle. Well, how can you have Oktoberfest celebrations without pork knuckle?
Actually, this is the first time I had pork knuckle. Unbelievable right? Especially when I love pork so much.
The beer for that day is specially brewed for Oktoberfest. It goes well with the pork knuckle.
Had 0.5 litres instead of 1 litres cause I'm driving. Remember, if you drink, don't drive. The Oktoberfest beer is stronger but rather smooth. Too bad they don't sell this beer on normal days.
And as we are eating and drinking, a german band was playing in the background. So this is how Oktoberfest should be. Eating meat and drinking beer. Life is an enjoyment.
Don't feel sad if you missed the Oktoberfest celebration this year. Erdinger Weissbier will brings the Oktoberfest festive spirit to Singapore between 12 Oct to 15 Oct.
Nevermind if the real Oktoberfest at Munich ends on 7 Oct 2007.
Nevermind if Erdinger isn't one of the Brewery taking part in the real Oktoberfest at Munich.
Most people can't tell the differences. (I can't tell the difference too)
I'm glad that I 'celebrated' Oktoberfest before 7 Oct and drank the Oktoberfest beer specially brewed by Paulaner.
