GAB Oktoberfest Malaysia Is Back!

Yes. Time flies. It's already October and it could only mean one thing. Time to party with beers! It's the time to celebrate Oktoberfest in Malaysia! What is Oktoberfest, you ask? It initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese's meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’. Since it started in German, then it is better to celebrate with a German beer like Paulaner. Oh, there is a special edition 1 liter Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug.

Do you know that Paulaner was first brewed by monks from the Paulaner monastery in 1634 making it almost 380 years old – however it is still the “youngest” of the Oktoberfest Beers. Oh, Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier is not a wheat beer but instead a lager and it's a little bit stronger (6% alcohol) than the non-Oktoberfest Paulaner variant.

As with last year's Oktoberfest, GAB will be organizing themed parties across the country. If you want to grab the special edition 1 liter Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug then you must like the Oktoberfest Malaysia Facebook Page, to find out more about the locations of the GAB Oktoberfest Malaysia parties.

It's time to celebrate Oktoberfest 2013 during this month of October and it's more fun doing it with a mug or two of Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier and remember to drink sensibly. Now, let me go and have a mug first. :P
