Beer Guzzler’s Oktoberfest This Time In November

Hallo, shall we refill that enormous mug with some chilled German beer? Because it’s already October and this year’s Oktoberfest seems distant. Don’t lose hope that easily because the dates are now confirmed. It may not be in October but Oktoberfest is finally here and come November, beer drinkers have a reason to raise a toast.

It’s that time of the year when you can guzzle down glasses of beer and be loud; because you can. However, there are a few changes this year; the three-day beer fest has now been cut down to a one-day fest that will happen on 30th November, 2012.

Be assured that unlike last year, Oktoberfest 2012 claims to be authentically German what with:

• German wheat beer and other flavoured beers to quench your thirst

• Typical German food with a range of Bratwursts (sausages), sauerkraut, pretzels, rostisteak, potato salad, apple strudel and other Indian and continental food with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options

• A German band ‘Die Sulmtaler’ that will set the mood

To be part of this beer-ful carnival, you can book a whole table and enjoy with a group of 10 friends or even book individual seats if you’re a smaller group.

If you are ready to shell out Rs. 2,500/- (exclusive of taxes) for unlimited beer for an entire day, then you should book your seats soon as they have over 1000 tickets waiting to be grabbed. Psstt. With all the taxes, the exact price would be Rs. 3,434.

Oktoberfest 1 litre mugs will be on sale for Rs. 500, so if you want to hold on to that beer till eternity, buy one and they will serve you beer in it because sometimes half empty glasses are just not fun enough to hold.

Here’s how you can grab your passes: Send an e-mail request to and their team will get in touch with you. Closer to the date, table numbers will be allotted and you will have to go and pick up your tags and beer vouchers.

Oh, there is red and white wine too!

Oktoberfest 2012 will be held on 30th November from 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm at Royal Western India Turf Club, Race Course, Mahalaxmi.
