Pork knuckles, bratwurst, games, and loads of beer: the world’s largest, and possibly oldest, beer festival is back. Here is where to celebrate Oktoberfest 2022 in Singapore.
Held in Munich since 1810, Oktoberfest is a celebration of Bavarian folk culture. It typically starts around two weeks before 3 October, and involves a beer festival, cultural activities, and a fairground. In 1985, around 1.7 million people joined in for its 175th anniversary, and the 1910th edition holds the record for the most beer consumed at over 1 million litres.
While German restaurants in Singapore hold on to traditions by offering Bavarian dishes, festival beer (fest bier), and beer tapping ceremonies, others have invoked the spirit with deals on beer. Still, that is a win for all of us. Read on for more.
