A couple of years ago, FHM was invited to a massive celebration of booze, grub, and tunes aka Oktoberfest. Safe to say we went home woozy, well-fed, and wild.
2018 is a special year because it marks the German Club's 80th anniversary for Oktoberfest, the longest-running and largest celebration of its kind in the Philippines.
"The German Club is a 112-year-old membership club in Manila, and this year, we are celebrating our biggest Oktoberfest yet. We are very delighted to continue this tradition in the Philippines and celebrate the occasion with our Filipino friends. We are pleased to have a new partner in Solaire." says German Club President Tobias Rast.
Happening from October 4 to 6 (6 p.m. to 2 a.m.) at the Solaire Oktoberfest Tent, Oktoberfest 2018 will be a grand showcase of German culture, featuring free-flowing German beer (over 25,000 liters of beer from the world's oldest brewery, Weihenstephan), traditional Bavarian food—sausages, pretzels, and schnitzel—and 12-man German band Bavarian Sound Express, who are flying in from Germany. There will also be traditional Oktoberfest games and an exciting raffle.
"As one of Manila's premier destinations, we only aim to give the best experiences to our guests. We are honored and thrilled to be hosting this year's Oktoberfest, and we want to make it even more memorable by ensuring that everything's authentic—the beers, the food, and the entertainment. It’ll truly put the spotlight on the best of German culture," says Solaire VP for Food & Beverage Bastian Breuer.
Guests (18 years old and above) are required to wear smart casual or a traditional German outfit (lederhosen or dirndl, anyone?). Ticket holders are entitled to a one-day entry and will be given a wristband based on their designated zone. They will also be given a German beer mug, which they can take home, and can enjoy free flow German food and beer as well as snacks from the midnight buffet.
