Get the Ger­man beers in

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

QUENCH your thirst with Ger­man beer and stuff your­self silly on Ger­man hot­dogs and sauer­kraut at this week­end’s Por­to­ber­fest.

The an­nual event is on again and kick­ing off at mid­day this Satur­day with a live DJ and “beers of the world” drink spe­cials.

Event or­gan­iser and Court House Ho­tel man­ager Ja­son An­der­sen is wel­com­ing any­one over the age of 18 to at­tend.

“It’s a pretty big day with a best dressed com­pe­ti­tion and all of our staff will be dressed up,” he said.

“It’s a free event and we’ve got com­mem­o­ra­tive stein glasses to buy and to keep re­fill­ing.

“We’ve done it for the last four years and it’s just grown and is a great day to so­cialise and have a few coldies.”

There will be “Ger­man danc­ing girls” dur­ing the day and Big Noise will hit the stage at 7pm to keep the crowds en­ter­tained.

“We had about 400 peo­ple last year, so it’ll be a big one,” Ja­son said.

“There will be Ger­man food for sale and beer in­clud­ing Asahi, Peroni, Guin­ness, Heineken and Carlsberg - they’re not very pop­u­lar for our cli­mate ex­cept on Por­to­ber­fest.”
