Samstag, 07.10.2023 – Anzapfen Oktoberfest German Club


The Brisbane German Club is putting on a MONTH of Bavarian festivities for you!

…starting with the Anzapfen ceremony on this Saturday and we will not miss it.

If you’ve experienced it in the past, then you know exactly why Anzapfen {Opening Ceremony} is a highlight at any Oktoberfest.

This tradition has been celebrated at the Oktoberfest in Munich for a century, with the city’s Lord Mayor tapping the first keg of Bier and offering the first stein poured to the Head of State, announcing “O’zapft is” {“It is tapped”}.

Word is, that the very first Oktoberfest ever celebrated in Brisbane was right here at the German Club many, many decades ago. And that is why it is called THE ORIGINAL OKTOBERFEST! Come and enjoy the Biergarten atmosphere provided just for you this month. Indulge in traditional Bavarian cuisine, imported German beers and the Club’s own Oktoberfest band.

The Brisbane German Club is pleased to announce this year’s Oktoberfest will be bigger and better than ever before, putting on a month of Fun, Authentic German Froth & Food!

The event will be held over four weekends commencing with the traditional keg tapping ceremony on Saturday the 7th of October then, after the opening event, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the 29th of Oktober. On each festival day there will be entertainment, fun competitions and give aways.

See you there with “Prost!”
