Friday, 5 Oktober

If you experienced it last year, then you’ll know exactly why ‘Anzapfen’ is a highlight at Oktoberfest Brisbane.

This tradition has been celebrated at Oktoberfest in Munich for a century, with the city’s Lord Mayor tapping the first keg of beer and offering the first stein of beer to the Head of State, announcing “O’zapft is” {“It is tapped”}.

You’re invited to join a raft of VIP’s for this ceremonious event as the Brisbane Lord Mayor Graham Quirk helps get the two-week Oktoberfest Brisbane celebration underway!

We’ve been privileged to have Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk, tap our first keg in 2008 and look forward to welcoming him back again this year to kick off 2018!
