Similar with the German Club of Manila and Sofitel Manila, the annual Oktoberfest celebration has also, sort of, became a tradition in dencio.com. I have been blogging about the event for several years now and what I can say is, the tradition stays true to the original Oktoberfest but the celebration gets bigger and better every year.
This year, the 75th Oktoberfest will be celebrated here in the Philippines. That means, Barrels and Barrels of Beers and Pounds and Pounds of Bavarian food will be served again at Sofitel Manila’s newly renovated Harbor Garden Tent on October 18 and 19. A close to home party for our German Friends and a Truly Magnificent Cultural Experience for Filipinos.
Some Oktoberfest Trivia by the Numbers:
- 28, 548 Maß beer (traditional one liter mug) consumed in a span of 2 days during Oktoberfest 2012.
- 3,500 – Number of people that came to Oktoberfest 2012
- 950 kgs of German sausages consumed (Ring Bratwurst, Cheese Sausage, Cervelat Sausages, Münchner Weisswurst, Münchner Bratwurst and Hungarian sausages) in a span of 2 days during Oktoberfest 2012.
- 260 kgs of Pork knuckles consumed in a span of 2 days during Oktoberfest 2012.
- 200 kgs of Sauerkraut consumed in a span of 2 days during Oktoberfest 2012.
- 75 – years of existence of Oktoberfest and the German Club in the Philippines (since 1906)
- 4 – Years that Oktoberfest is held at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza
- Bavarian Sound Express -The name of the Bavarian band specially chosen to play at Oktoberfest 2013
Of course the stars of the Show are the Beers and the Food! The beer will be provided by our very own San Miguel Brewery but the food, an all-imported array of traditional and authentic Bavarian goodness!
You must try the cheesy something sausage! It is so good! Crispy tight skin, juicy meaty goodness with cheese that literally burst in your mouth in every bite!
To pump up the celebration, The Bloomfields will be rocking the house with their retro 60s music when they perform on the October 19.
