Sydney’s month-long German beer festival is coming to a close this weekend, with live music and brewery tours taking place.
German-beer lovers can catch the last of Hopfest this weekend (March 26th-27th), as the month-long festival at the Lowenbrau Keller at the Rocks, Sydney comes to an end.
Traditional German beer, or bier as the Bavarians call it, will be on offer until the end of the month, meaning that this weekend is your last chance to catch the Saturday Stammtisch.
This German pub tradition includes drinking bier with a special breakfast at a communal table to ease you into the weekend.
Accompanying music will come from renowned German Oktoberfest band Enzianer, who are fresh from a tour of Las Vegas.
Furthermore, the Lowenbrau Keller features a Bier Akademie, where you can learn about the complexities of hops and its uses in the brewing process, along with a few free tasting sessions.
So book your flights to Australia now and you’ll discover that there’s much more to the pubs down-under than just Fosters and Castelmaine.
