Oktoberfest Melbourne huuggeee! Next up Sydney

Last Saturday was St Kilda's second Oktoberfest (or 6th SpecTAPular seasonal beerfest since we opened) and the second biggest night we've ever had (last Oktoberfest pipped it by a whisker)..

The rain stayed away and we had what can only be described as a blast.. The staff looked awesome in their costumes (particularly the ladies) and the ommpa band played up a storm downstairs. More photos will be posted soon.

Of the beers I tried, my personal faves were Spaten Oktoberfestbier, Gilden Kolsch, Red Hill Weizenbock, Mash Eisbock & especially Last Drop Kellerbier..

The only disappointment of the day was that the Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen keg was off which was a huge shame given the fact that it was the first time on tap in Australia!

Now to do it all again in Sydney this coming weekend!

  1. Thanks for the update re the Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen. I was looking forward to trying this one so it's a shame that it was so obviously tainted. Hopefully you'll get some other rauchbiers in.
