MELBOURNE | It’s September, and you know what that means? Oktoberfest! Why does Oktoberfest start in September you may ask? Basically it’s to do with the fact that the weather (in Germany) is better and the days are longer in September.

In Australia, we have neither the weather advantage in September nor the rich history of Oktoberfest as part of our culture, but we all like a good festival, drink and music so of course we try and celebrate Oktoberfest with fervour.

In Melbourne (and Sydney), one of the best spots to celebrate Oktoberfest is at Munich Brauhaus. The fact that the venue is modelled after a traditional Bavarian beer hall, serving German beer and food is the obvious reason, but more specifically Munich Brauhaus has the largest selection of Oktoberfest beers on tap in Australia.

For those who aren’t aware, each year there are six breweries who brew beer conforming to the Reinheitsgebot (“German Beer Purity Law”) within the city limits of Munich. The beers are generally light/golden Marzens which are brewed in March and allowed to ferment during the summer, before being served at Oktoberfest. Only beers meeting these criteria can be designated “Oktoberfestbiers”.

The 6 breweries who make Oktoberfest beers are Spaten, Löwenbräu, Augustiner-Bräu, Hofbräu-München, Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr. Of these six, only Augustiner-Bräu won’t be on the taps at Munich Brauhaus.

We were guests of Munich Brauhaus earlier this week and tried all 5 of the Oktoberfest beers in advance of their launch on the taps and thoroughly enjoyed them, with memories of the time we actually went to Munich for Oktoberfest flooding back. We also tried some of the traditional Germany food on offer including the schnitzels, house made haute sausages and of course, pretzels.

If you want to listen to us talk about the beers and share Oktoberfest stories, check out our Brunswick Beer Collective Oktoberfest episode here.

Oktoberfest at Munich Brauhaus in 2016 runs from 16 September to 31 October, so put on your dirndl and lederhosen, and prost!
