Gents, it’s time lug on the lederhosen, dust off the dirndls and get ready to party with added oompah at the Newlands Brewery, Village Green, from the 4th – 6th November 2016. Yes, that’s right, TOPS at SPAR Bierfest is back! This year sees the much-loved festival celebrating its sixth year in existence as SA’s favourite proudly national annual touring festival of Bavarian bier culture and the festival promises to even bigger and better with a refreshed festival layout and a richly expanded entertainment programme.
Since inception in 2011, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest has delivered South Africans a taste of the Munich Oktoberfest right to their doorsteps. The country’s biggest annual, national touring festival of Bavarian bier culture revels in all that is good about bier, bratwursts, pretzels, frauleins and of course – the music they call “oompah!”
“In 2016, as we mark our sixth year of being SA’s favourite bierfest, we thought it was time to shake things up!” comments Bierfest owner, Andrew Douglas. “We are revising the layout of our big beautiful brauhaus to give patrons a more natural flow from the outside areas which lends itself to a revamp of the live music aspect of the event.”
And, while the traditional oompah music remains a staple, this year’s entertainment lineup will see the inclusion of South Africa’s most-loved mock rock mash-up band – The Rockerfellas. But it’s not just live music that bier lovers can look forward to at the festival, there are lots of opportunities for audience participation where traditional Bavarian bierfest activities are the name of the game (think best-dressed competitions or OR milking a life-size imported Bavarian cow) and where amazing prizes can be won, including a chance to win a trip to the actual Oktoberfest in Munich 2017!
