TOPS at SPAR Bierfest 2015
We raise our stein’s to the speedy approach of the annual TOPS at SPAR Bierfest, as this year’s celebration of froth, food, fun and friends.
TOPS at SPAR Bierfest -in association with Tsogo Sun, Jägermeister, Gearhouse, Dryver, Good Fellas and Jiguja – will be hosted inside a 4 000-seater Bavarian Brauhaus festooned with festival décor direct from München. Modeled on the much-loved Munich Oktoberfest, the ever-popular TOPS at SPAR Bierfest will once again serve up it’s unique ‘celebration of the suds’, recreating the revelry, tradition and, of course, the tastes of this epic annual celebration.
The celebration of all things frosty, frothy and fun will get the German-inspired party started in Durban at Suncoast from 4th – 5th September. Then continue on in Johannesburg at Montecasino from 9 – 11 October, and again from the 16 – 17 October. Then finally in Cape Town at Newlands Brewery from the 6-8 November.
Bier lovers and event-goers are encouraged to dress in customary costumes like dirndls and lederhosen for this ultimate celebration of culture, family and friends.
You and your friends attempt an array of traditional Oktoberfest challenges. Visitors can also look forward to a range of activities and competitions such as the ‘Tapping of the Keg’, the ‘Mass-Heben Competition’ and the ‘Snuff Cannon’ – as well as the inevitable ‘Best-Dressed’ competition.
Master Brewers from specialist brewery No. 3 Fransen Street will also be located onsite for tasting and beer education.
The event is not open to visitors under the age of 18.
