Oktoberfest (2016) at 1 Utama Shopping Centre
[ADV] Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers actually became a digital media agency proper when we were engaged for Oktoberfest back in 2011 and this continued the following year as well. As such, we have lots of fond memories attending the Oktoberfest parties especially the big ones at 1 Utama Shopping Centre. In fact for some of the parties we even got some of our girls to wear the Dirndl.
This year, Luen Heng F&B once again partners with 1 Utama Shopping Centre to bring Oktoberfest back for the 12th year at 1 Utama, this time with a four (4) day party from 6 to 9 October 2016 (Thursday to Sunday). This festivities this year will be held for the first time on the Level 5 Rooftop, Old Wing, 1 Utama Shopping Centre from 6.00pm onwards.
Get ready for nights of live music, performances, games and a variety of local and international food and drinks. The event is for non-Muslim patrons aged 18 years and above and will be in the big tent will be constructed at Level 5 rooftop carpark.
This year’s party sees Euro-Deli and German Chef Jochen Kern (award recipient of the coveted World Association of Chefs Global Master Chef title) serving an array of German delicacies such as pork knuckles, sauerkraut, salads, soups, beef goulash, fish and chips, Jäger Putenschnitzel, meatloaf and grilled meats, bread station with German sourdough bread, pretzels, gingerbread hearts, cheese cake, apple strudel, bread butter pudding, and waffles. There will also be a smoking hot German BBQ Big Pan serving up German bratwursts.
Look out for these German brews:
Konig Ludwig Weisbier
Erdinger Weissbier (5.3% ABV), pioneered in the 70′s, was the first German wheat to be distributed nationwide in Germany. Erdinger is brewed according to traditional recipes and has no preservatives, additives and pasteurization, complying with the Bavarian Purity Law 1516.
Franziskaner Weissbier (5% ABV), a traditional Bavarian wheat beer with more than 600 years of history, is refreshing and aromatic in character. This Bavarian beer is naturally cloudy and copper-coloured and enhanced with a sweet malt taste with a smooth creamy texture for finish.
Lowenbrau, (5.2% ABV), an original “German Munich Beer”, is famous at Oktoberfests. It is a lager beer that is refreshing with a taste of malt and mild hop bitterness. The beer is light to the taste, bright golden yellow in colour, and truly complements the Bavarian drinking experience.
As well as some other brews including:
And a selection of fine wines for those of you who don’t drink beer or cider.
