Samstag, 05.10.2024 – 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 {tapping the first keg Ceremony} is a highlight at any Oktoberfest.

This tradition has been celebrated at the Oktoberfest in Munich for two centuries, 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 Australia’s very first Oktoberfest ever celebrated was right here in Brisbane at the German Club exactly five 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.


Brisbane’s Original Oktoberfest!

The Brisbane German Club is thrilled to announce that 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 every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until the 27th of Oktober. On each festival day there will be entertainment, fun competitions and give aways.

See you there with “Prost!”



Visitors can join the Brisbane German Club in celebrating and enjoying the atmosphere through authentic Live Entertainment, Brisbane’s largest range of imported German Beer, mouth-watering German Food, fun Oktoberfest competitions & so much more… Something for everyone!

Enjoy a meal in the Biergarten or a Bier in the transformed Oktoberfest Hall.
