Amazing isn’t, beer lovers? 😀
Now just hold on a second… What is Oktoberfest? Background & facts:
Oktoberfest is actually a royal wedding celebration in 1810 in German. It must be so cool (and everyone love beer so much) that eventually, throughout the years, Oktoberfest became a public celebration with fun-filled activities such as horse races, traditional costumes parades, live music, dancing and BEER. Today, Oktoberfest is not only a German affair, it’s a worldwide global celebration that involves 7 million drinkers consuming over 7 million litres of beer! I’m sure most of you are responsible as a part of it. And if you’re not, why not join in the fun this year?
One of the most unique thing about Oktoberfest is the specially brewed beer which is only available in Malaysia when October is here… what beer is it? It’s the Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier *throws confetti*
You haven’t heard of Paulaner? Let me enlighten you, poor soul! Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier Paulaner is a beer originated from German in the year 1634. It was first brewed by monks from a monastery since 380 years ago (holy & vintage, eh?) The Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is different from the typical range of other Paulaners available because it is lager (not a wheat beer). Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is strong stuff, as it contains about 6% alcohol, making them somewhat ‘stronger’ than other “non-Oktoberfest” beers. Now, can you handle it? Come join in the fun & prove yourself!
