And just like that, Oktoberfest is here. If San Miguel Beer's 3D party last Friday (September 10) at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds is any indication, this year's Oktoberfestivities look bigger and better than ever. [firstpara]
But of course: This year marks the 200th year of our most favorite of holidays. Solid partying is but expected.
San Miguel is bringing out their big guns, and the German Club, along with Sofitel Manila, promises to do the same.
San Miguel, for one, will be offering the three Bs—beer, babes, and bands— for a month and a half. That's right, one month and a half of merriment, care of San Miguel Beer! (Click here to see what SMB has lined up for us)
The SMB big nine – the Pale Pilsen, the Premium All-Malt, the Super Dry, Cerveza Negra, San Mig Strong Ice, Red Horse Beer, San Mig Light, Gold Eagle Beer, and Oktoberfest’s own Oktobrew – will be served in this year’s beer festivities.
What inuman is complete without sounds? The likes of The Dawn, Gloc 9, Pupil, and the Philippine All Star Dancers will be performing at succeeding SMB Oktoberfest events all throughout Metro Manila.
Out of town drinkers can also head on to the CNLA, VISAYAS, and MINDANAO areas for the Oktoberfest Sustaining Parties and check out Parokya ni Edgar, Spongecola, the Kitty Girls, and the Mocha Girls headline the festivities way down south.
