“Oans, zwoa, drei, g’suffa!” – one, two, three – drink!
Oktoberfest – One of the year’s most highly-anticipated events has always been a favorite among Filipinos and the expat community alike. A lively gathering filled with merrymaking and good-natured fun, the annual Oktoberfest aims to showcase the best of German culture through great food, entertainment, and of course, its famous beer.
Taking the fun and excitement to the next level, the German Club Manila recently signed an agreement with Solaire Resort & Casino to be the official venue for the 80th Oktoberfest, which will be held on October 4 to 6, 2018 at the Oktoberfest Tent at Solaire.
“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.
Located in the vibrant Entertainment City, the integrated resort is the ideal partner to host German Club Manila’s annual highlight event, which is expected to be bigger and better than before. Aside from its expertise in staging international and local events, Solaire is also home to the country’s finest bars and restaurants, who continue to provide impeccable culinary flavors and world-class service.
“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 Bastian Breuer, Vice President of Food & Beverage at Solaire Resort & Casino.
A 2,400sqm meter tent will serve as the venue for the three-day beer festival. Guests will get to savor authentic Bavarian beer from the world’s oldest brewery, Weihenstephaner while German Club Manila will spearhead the event program. Another highlight of the event is the Bavarian Sound Express, who will once again delight guests at this special Oktoberfest. German Club Manila and Solaire assures guests that this year’s event is the closest they’ll get to having a festive time, the authentic German Oktoberfest way.
“We are also happy to have the 80th Oktoberfest as part of our 5th-anniversary highlights, and guests will be pampered with an overflowing selection, Bavarian delicacies like pork knuckle, weisswurst, homemade sausages and German bread just to mention a few. Plus, a robust program will keep the fun going on all three days,” adds Michael Dinges, Vice President of Culinary at Solaire Resort & Casino.
