This October is no exception with Oktoberfest in the Gardens back again, bringing along over 20 imported German beers, ciders and wines to ‘prost’ in your dirndl or lederhosen get up amongst the riverside beer halls and German food stalls.

The Australian Drinks Festival – 2016

If you’ve outgrown your usual drink of choice (or decided drinking Espresso Martinis in Melbourne has become too normcore) then get ready to shake things up, (pun intended) raise your glass and say cheers this weekend at The Australian Drinks Festival.

Formerly known as the Top Shelf Festival, the premium drinks festival will see lots of cocktail shaking, wine sipping, beer skulling and dare we say shots poured as the two day event returns to Melbourne this weekend. Collect your Australian Drinks Festival passport and travel through stalls in the ‘Bar Safari’ sampling featured drinks and specials on offer from top Melbourne cocktail bars and restaurants or take part in one (or a few) of the extensive selection of tastings, classes and presentations on offer. Sit in on a Tequila Masterclass with Nick Peters from Melbourne’s Mamasita restaurant and bar or a Sensory Blindfolded Beer Tasting run by ‘Beer Diva’ Kirrily Waldhorn. Learn the Art of the Martini with Phillip Jones, aka ‘the Martini Whisperer’ and taste some of the world’s finest gins with ‘Gin Queen’ Caroline Childerley.

Participate in a Vodka and Food Pairing class or sign up to learn how to distil your own gin with McHenry Distillery. Visit the world’s smallest bar, ‘The Monkey’s Shoulder’ or make your way through the wide selection of premium and craft liquors, spirits, whiskies, beers, ciders and wines available directly from the distillers, winemakers and brewers exhibiting in the ‘Boutique Market’. Then once you’ve found your favourite drinks of choice, sit back and sip away in the wine garden surrounded by local food trucks and live music.

It is no secret that Australians love taking up the opportunity to flock to Munich at least once in their life for the worlds most popular beer festival in the world – Oktoberfest.
It is therefore no surprise to see that bringing an Oktoberfest festival to Australia has been such a success. Following on from the sell-out event in 2014, the biggest Oktoberfest celebration is back with a double dose of Bavarian fun. Located at the Melbourne riverside grounds of Birrarung Marr, Oktoberfest in the Gardens will be two days of celebrations in Melbourne on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th October.

Ladies don your dirndl, and fellas slip on your lederhose as ticketholders will be welcomed to the event with a commemorative event stein and complimentary beverage upon arrival. Then get ready to sip (or chug) a selection of imported European beverages at the pop up beer hall including wine, cider and of course – beer, with over 15 imported German draught beer options.
But a stein of ‘bier’ would not be complete without a pairing of ‘brezel’ and you can sample from an assortment of authentic Bavarian food on offer.  Enjoy the rest of the day amongst the variety or performers, competitions, carnival games, rides and live music to keep you entertained and partying like a Bavarian throughout the afternoon and evening.
