Steins at dawn you beer lovers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Port Dou­glas Ma­rina will once again play host to a world of beers on Port Dou­glas’s favourite day, Port­to­ber­fest, on Satur­day.

There will be a bevy of beers served up by beau­ti­ful danc­ing frauleins and plate­fuls of bratwursts to sat­isfy the ap­petite.

With 12 bars of­fer­ing the beers of the world, taste buds won’t know what hit them.

More than 1000 rev­ellers are ex­pected to pack out the iconic ma­rina as or­gan­is­ers are set to de­liver the most en­ter­tain­ing Port­to­ber­fest ever.

Since the 2007 Port­to­ber­fest, the next of Port Dou­glas land­mark lifes- tyle events has been suc­cess­fully build­ing its rep­u­ta­tion here in our lit­tle piece of trop­i­cal Aus­tralia, be­com­ing a favourite for lo­cals and tourists alike.

Port­to­ber­fest – Beers of the World was es­tab­lished to recog­nise the di­verse in­ter­na­tional flavour of Port Dou­glas’s unique lo­cals and its per­pet­ual wealth of visi­tors and of course the un­de­ni­able fact that here in Port Dou­glas and Cairns, quite frankly, we love beer

There will be live mu­sic all day and the party kicks off from 2pm.

Lure Restau­rant and Bar’s Wayne Sta­ple­ton said he is look­ing for­ward to this spe­cial event.

‘‘ Port­to­ber­fest means ‘ good times’ to the thou­sands who have at­tended over the years. And this year the spec­tac­u­lar ma­rina board­walk, with its scenic back­drop of the Rex Moun­tain Range and the lux­ury yachts bob­bing at their moor­ings in time to the fes­ti­val mu­sic, will present a very spe­cial way of cel­e­brat­ing this tra­di­tional Ger­man Mega Fes­ti­val,’’ he said.

‘‘We see this event be­ing able to em­brace all the great things cel­e­brated by our other ma­jor event hosted on the ma­rina, Car­ni­vale’s Seafood Ex­trav­a­ganza and the fa­mous Full Moon Par­ties.

‘‘ We have or­gan­ised North Queens­land’s hottest su­per group, Hip 2 Soul, and the Tonic from 2pm to 10pm to play through­out the af­ter­noon and evening.

‘‘(And) for any­one who hasn’t yet heard of or seen the Port­to­ber­fest Danc­ing Girls then just th­ese girls are worth at­tend­ing for, and yes, there will be the tra­di­tional slap dance!’’

Or­gan­is­ers have gone all out this year, with a $500 cash prize for best dressed beer wench, Corona girls and for the very first time a beer drink­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Tra­di­tional steins to re­ally get you in the mood will be avail­able through­out the day.
