Jozi, get ready to raise a frothy glass! The Tops At Spar Bierfest is back for

its 5th festive year; set to once again celebrate the burgeoning world of

beer and recreate the revelry, tradition and, of course, the tastes of the

epic annual Munich Oktoberfest.

Tops at Spar Bierfest in association with Tsogo Sun, Jägermeister,

Gearhouse, Dryver, Good Fellas and Jiguja will be housed inside a 4 000-

seater Bavarian Brauhaus, festooned with festival décor direct from

München, and will rock beer-lovers, ale aficionados and fun-loving revelers

in a host of sessions over two weekends (Fri, 9th October – Sun, 11th October

and Fri, 16 th – Sat, 17 th October) at Montecasino’s Outdoor Event Area.

Take our word on this one; you won’t want to miss this German-inspired

party! Fetching frauleins in dirndl skirts will greet you with a smile, a live

oompah band will blow your blues away, and you’ll raise your stein glass to

the start of another year’s legendary festival of bier, as you enjoy a great

line-up of artists and bands for this year’s celebration of the suds.

Hosted by The ‘Mayor of Munich’, much-loved local comedian, and actor

Brendan Murray, this year’s hotly anticipated Bierfest activities include the

‘Tapping of the Keg’, ‘Best-Dressed,’ and ‘Mass-Heben’ (stein lifting) – all

set to the stonking tunes of SA’s best-loved party band, Me and Mr. Brown.

Presenting partner and specialty beer brand No. 3 Fransen Street will also

be presenting their three small batch brands – a Cream Ale, a pert Irish Red

Ale and a traditional Krystal Weiss – plus long-time favourite: a limited

edition Bavarian-styled ale, specially named the Royal Bavaria Oktoberfest


Glam Cam 1

Backed by the expertise of their master brewers, No. 3 Fransen Street is

tempting ale-loving consumers to discover new beer experiences by

enjoying a wider variety of beer styles. These master brewers will be

available to enlighten beer-curious attendees with a veritable flood of

insider info and anecdotes at Bierfest’s “Braumeister Ecke” – a.k.a

Brewmaster’s Corner.

Offering value for money and an all-round entertainment spectacle, TOPS

at SPAR Bierfest has fast established itself as a not-to-be-missed annual

event that couldn’t be easier to organise for a garrulous gatherings of

friends or colleagues as Bierfest offers a broad variety of specially ‘crafted’

packages (including pre-booked tables, delicious Bavarian-style meals and

costume hire) ensure all the preparation is arranged before you arrive at

your table.
