The city’s only microbrewery promises days and nights of entertainment, and its classic Oktoberfest Bier.
Jakarta, 12 August 2014—Paulaner Bräuhaus, the only home of real German beer in Jakarta, will be delighting beer lovers and partygoers from around the world when its sensational Oktoberfest kicks off on September 24. This is perhaps the party of the year.
Paulaner Brewmaster, Arie Susanto, will kick-start the opening night with “Anstich”, which is tapping the first litre of his specially brewed Oktoberfest Bier. The ingredients are all brought in from Munich and brewed on site at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta microbrewery.
To give this ultimate beer festival an extra-special Bavarian touch, the renowned German band Xelchten is being flown in by Lufthansa straight from Munich to Jakarta to keep revellers on their feet day and night. What’s more, funny Oktoberfest games like beer glasses holding and beer chugging competition will bring out the naughty child in everyone.
“We are promising all the elements of a genuine Oktoberfest: women wearing dirndl dresses, men in traditional leather lederhosen, barrel after barrel of beer, delicious wurst and pork knuckle, and hour after hour of singing and dancing,” said Sri Murtana, Paulaner Restaurant Manager. And the party rocks on for five nights only from 24 until 28 September, challenging even the most hedonistic of happiness-seekers to keep pace.
Entrance pass to the Paulaner Oktoberfest includes delicious family-style Bavarian food, free flow of special Oktoberfest Bier and priced at IDR 688,000 net per person. Meanwhile, group passes are available from IDR 5m net per table of 10 persons for companies and families looking to host guests and friends or to celebrate in a fun and memorable atmosphere—whatever the occasion.
Everyone is invited to come and experience the proud traditions of the world’s most funky folk festival. Prost, as they say in Bavaria!
About Oktoberfest Bier
This beer is an institution: the Oktoberfest Bier from Paulaner, with its full-bodied, pleasant taste, pairs beautifully with Paulaner’s hearty delicacies like Hendln (roast chicken) or Schweinshaxen (pork knuckle). Its alcohol content of 5% per volume makes it somewhat stronger than the usual lager beer. The specific gravity of the Oktoberfest Beer is also slightly higher, starting at 13.5%. With a hint of malty sweetness, the Oktoberfest Bier boasts the perfect balance of strength and flavour.
