This is the one annual festival where thousands - sometimes millions - of beer and food lovers throng some venue to indulge mercilessly and endlessly in one huge routine of nothing but unbridled fun and ecstatic thrill.

We all love beer. Dammit.

And as we all know, the best tastes of beer don't go down unless accompanied by some wild music, crazy girls, booming sounds, fantastic company and of course, scrumptious foods. Which is exactly what October Fest is pretty much all about - unhinged hedonism.


After a little two-year lull,the wildly-popular October Fest, itself a German tradition that has now been spread out across the entire universe, is proudly back in town.

Add some musical bands into the mix - and some pretty girls - and you've got your whole weekend very covered. Really.

According to a top source at the Big Five Breweries,the 2016 Octoberfest promises something that's a little out of this world and a little out of this town.

"It's as epic as epic can be. I mean, we have over ten different types of brews on tap including Temstout, Simpils, Kifaboack and the much-loved Karamell.

Also, brace yourself Octoberfesters because we shall be also offering something so delicious you'll probably lose your minds - a beer and cheese combination! ", she says.


Also, on top of all of the amazing stuff that are lined up for revelers, on hand also will be an array of some of the illest and most electrifying performers kicking it on stage and driving the attendees wild.

Bands like Simply Tona as well as the Beethogs will be tearing up the guitars and booming up the drums as revelers continue chatting the night away with drink after drink after drink.
