Event Details

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!

Gates open to the public at 4pm on Friday, Oktober 11 and the ceremony will kick-off at around 4.30pm, after which the festival taps will be flowing with beer specially-brewed for Oktoberfest Brisbane.
