Party brewing at Tooborac Hotel
THE BEERS will flow at the Tooborac Hotel’s sixth annual OkTOOBerfest beer festival on October 28. Each year the hotel hosts families, groups, and friends to celebrate German tradition, craft beer and all things local.
Hotel owner Valerie Carlin said the traditional Oktoberfest has been an important part of Bavarian culture since first being held in 1810, and is a tradition that is celebrated all over the world.
“There is something for everyone here at the festival,” she said.
“We offer a jumping castle and fun-filled activities for the kids, a wide range of craft beer for the adults and live music for everyone to enjoy.”
Head brewer Pete Martin is celebrating his third OkTOOBerfest at the hotel and said he was looking forward to pouring the limited-edition German inspired brew.
“This beer is only offered once a year so make sure you come and have a stein or two”.
The venue will set up with the band on stage, brewery on show, outdoor food facilities and a children’s area.
Kicking off at 11am on OkTOOBer 28, tickets are available online or at the gate.
All adult tickets include a 0.5 or one litre stein filled with Tooborac craft beer and children under five are free.
On the day, a total of nine craft beers will be offered on tap between their indoor and outdoor bars with plenty in the fridge to take home.
Tooborac will offer a wide range of award-winning brews such as our Shearer’s lager, Stonemason’s pale ale, Gunslingers American pale ale, Woodcutter’s amber ale, Blacksmith’s porter, seasonal delights and their new Mid-Strength Traveller.
Owners James and Valerie Carlin, manager Vince Martinico and all the staff invite the public to enjoy the warm central Victorian hospitality, a taste of the country and a touch of German frivolity.

Household rubbish bins often contain items that could have been recycled.
Our recycling bins can be contaminated with non-recyclable items that cause problems during sorting.
Your kerbside recycling bin can accept many household items such as aluminium and steel cans, glass jars and bottles, milk and juice cartons, foil trays and aerosols, rigid plastic containers and bottles, cardboard, newspapers and magazines.
Items such as plastic bags, garden waste, food scraps, polystyrene and foam, nappies, waxed cardboard, syringes and medical waste, soil and rocks, clothing and textiles, chemicals, liquids and paint should not be put into your kerbside recycling bin. Recycling tips:
It is important that you don’t place items in plastic bags, as they will not be recycled.
Items don’t need to be sparkling clean when put in the recycling bin, just empty. Remove solid food scraps and liquids.
To save room in your recycling bin ensure boxes and bottles are flattened. Bin collection tips:
Place bins out the night before or by 6am on the day of collection.
The bin lid must be closed for collection. The truck’s mechanical arm cannot lift overfilled bins. Extra items placed on top or next to the bin will not be collected.
Place bins close to the kerb at least one metre apart and away from trees, cars and other bins. Bins should face the road with the handles and wheels towards the property.
Remove bins promptly after collection. Each time we recycle right we reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
This saves energy, reduces the need to extract raw materials, saves limited natural resources and helps communities and the economy by encouraging innovation and creating jobs in the recycling industry.
Last year’s OkTOOBerfest beer festival was a big hit.
