• Oktoberfest Long weekend @ Murrys Brewery and Winery (3443 Nelson Bay Road Bobs Farm, New South Wales 2316)

    Oktoberfest at Murray’s Brewery

    • 3 special festival beers
    • Oompah-licious festival food
    • Prizes for best dressed
    • FREE ‘rocktoberfest’ concerts and Brewery Tours

    The world’s biggest festival is coming to Port Stephens, with the launch of Oktoberfest at Murray’s Brewery this October long-weekend. And the celebrations will continue all month!

    Three specially-brewed festival beers, Oktoberfest food including a range of gourmet sausages, and house-made pretzels with mustard, plus free ‘rocktoberfest’ concerts will be performed at the Oktoberfest-themed Bobs Farm brewery.

    One of the region’s favourite and most fun groups, Crocq Trio Band, headlines festival entertainment, with a huge free R&B and soul concert on Sunday 2 October. While on Saturday 1 October Newcastle Indie/Roots artist, Tom Blake, performs. And there will be live entertainment each weekend across October.

    “So break out the lederhosen, start practising your oompah-pahs and celebrate the world’s biggest festival, down under, at Bobs Farm this October. There’ll be spot prizes for best dressed. Hope to see you there!” says brewery owner, Murray Howe.

    The Oktoberfest in Munich is the largest festival in the world. In 2016, almost 7 million litres of beer are expected to be consumed there. This consumption accounts for about 30% of the entire annual beer production of all the Munich breweries combined. Visitors also eat a staggering 400,000 sausages – or around one sausage for every two seconds during the festivals business hours! And the festival record for number of beers carried in one go is 27!

    “It seems that beer really can stimulate an economy,” added Murray. “In Germany, Oktoberfest is one of the nation’s biggest exports, and last year the festival generated a staggering AUD$1.63 billion for its economy.”

    Many people may not know that Oktoberfest is also the name of beer style.

    “Technically, authentic ‘Oktoberfestbier’ is brewed only by the breweries within the city limits of Munich. All other beers brewed to emulate the original must be labelled Oktoberfest-style beer! Murray’s is also brewing a traditional Oktoberfest beer – or should I say Oktoberfest-style beer, which is smooth, clean, and rather rich, with a depth of malt character,” says Murray’s Brewer, Alex Tucker.

    “We’re also pouring a German Schwarzbier and another weird and wonderful German-inspired beer which we haven’t decided on as yet. There will be loads of festival food specials to accompany our German-style beers – think sausages (maybe not 400,000 of them though), and pretzels with housemade mustard,” he added.

    What is known today as the world’s biggest beer festival actually started out as a Royal Wedding on 12 October 1810 – where a horse race was the big attraction, and not the beer. Today, Oktoberfest is all about the beer. The festival celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2010, and amazingly, only wars and cholera epidemics have briefly interrupted the annual beer celebration across the past two centuries.
