Lecker {tasty} Wein
Award-winning premium German winery Brogsitter will once again bring you the opportunity to sample their classic German white, red and sparkling wines. Nestled in the stunningly picturesque Ahr Valley, near the Rhine River, these wines are so popular locally that few ever leave Germany!

Connoisseurs of Beer
We’ve travelled far and wide to source three flagship beers for Oktoberfest Brisbane. All are brewed according to the German Purity Law, packed with flavour and made only for this festival. 343-year old Bavarian Brauerei {brewery} Tucher Bräu crafts our Lager and Weissbier {wheat beer} while Queensland’s famous Burleigh Brewing Co. will showcase their delicious German-style Dunkelbier {dark beer}.

Unique Stein. Unique Style.
Our beer Steins are designed specifically to replicate Germany’s famous Bavarian beer steins. Like our beers, you won’t find them anywhere else in Australia. Due to Queensland Liquor Licensing regulations, Oktoberfest Brisbane steins are 500ml (rather than 1 litre) and are made from high-quality durable plastic, not glass. We’ve also designed special coolers to help the Steins ‘adapt’ to Aussie weather.

 

When you immerse yourself in German culture, do it responsibly!
