Modelled on Munich's world famous Oktoberfest, Tops at Spar Bierfest recreates the revellery, tradition, and of course the beer, of Bavarian beer festivals of old. Bierfest will be kicking off in Durban at Suncoast from 12th - 15th September 2013.
Now in its 3rd year, Tops at Spar Bierfest is officially South Africa's biggest beer festival. Founding partner South African Breweries, have once more called upon their Master Brewers to craft three limited edition Bavarian-styled beers, exclusively brewed for Bierfest. Beers include the always popular Royal Bavaria Oktoberfest Bier, the traditional Krystal Weiss Protea Edelweiss and the speciality dark alethe King Ludwig Munich Dunkel. Master Brewers will be located onsite for tasting and beer education at Bierfest's "Braumeister Ecke" - a.k.a Brewmasters Corner.

We are proud to promote beer culture in this country - made all the more unique with our special brand of Bavarian fun and world class entertainment. Our goal is to cement Bierfest as a major event and mainstay in South Africa's event calendar nationwide" says Producer, Andrew Douglas.
