Now in it’s eighth year, Tops at Spar Bierfest, South Africa’s largest annual festival of Bavarian bier culture is back again, bringing its lederhosen, dirndls, pigtails, oompah music, frauleins, eisbeins and jugs of specially-made, cold biers to Cape Town.
Leading each 5-hour long romp of oompah, provided by Adolf Thelen’s Songscape Oompah Band, bier and Bavarian cuisine is the return of award-winning actor and stand-up comedian Brendan Murray in the role of Klaus Über Hüber, the mayor of Munich, with a supporting cast of feisty frauleins, Rainer Augustine the jolly innkeeper and one of SA’s top party bands, the Rockerfellas.
As always, guests can participate in a range of traditional Oktoberfest-inspired games between biers, on-the-spot competitions and other audience participatory activities.
2019 dates and times to be confirmed.
Venue: Sun Exhibits, GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World, 1 Jakes Gerwel Dr, Goodwood, Cape Town
