From now until October 7, you can dine in the middle of a beer garden patio complete with Bavarian music, atmosphere, and authentic ceramic steins of Brau-Weisse Ayinger beer. This Oktoberfest favourite has been specially brought in from Bavaria and is joined by fest favourites such as salted pretzels, Black Forest sauerkraut, spaëtzle, and schnitzel.

This is a fun way to partake of the yearly tradition that Bavarians the world over have come to cherish. Raise a mug and say “prosit“!
