Beer lovers mustn’t miss out on the Oktoberfest Bei­jing 2017, which will en­able them to en­joy au­then­tic Bavar­ian beer brewed on-site and de­li­cious Bavar­ian cui­sine.

The beer fes­ti­val will take place at Paulaner Brauhaus restau­rant, Kempin­ski Ho­tel Bei­jing Lufthansa Cen­ter, from Oct 12-29.

Guests, to­gether with their fam­i­lies and friends, can im­merse them­selves in the Oktoberfest at­mos­phere by en­joy­ing live mu­sic from a Ger­man band and tra­di­tional Bavar­ian dances.

There will be an enor­mous tent on the ter­race of the restau­rant, with dec­o­ra­tions in a Bavar­ian style. It can ac­com­mo­date up to 500 peo­ple at a time.

Last year, more than 6,000 peo­ple joined in fes­tiv­i­ties.

All beers are brewed in ac­cor­dance with the Bavar­ian Pu­rity Law, en­sur­ing the best taste and qual­ity.

Paulaner beer is brewed with only four ba­sic in­gre­di­ents — bar­ley, hops, yeast and wa­ter. Oktoberfest Beer is only avail­able dur­ing the Oktoberfest.

In 1516, the brothers Duke Wil­liam IV and Duke Louis X of Bavaria an­nounced the law to en­sure the qual­ity of beer, which is still in ef­fect to­day.

Dur­ing the fes­ti­val, the restau­rant also of­fers Sun­day brunch on Oct 15, 22 and 29 from 11:30 am to 4 pm, with a va­ri­ety of dishes such as Ger­man sausages.

As the world’s largest beer fes­ti­val, Oktoberfest was orig­i­nally held an­nu­ally in Mu­nich, Ger­many, with a his­tory stretch­ing back more than 200 years.

In 1992, the Paulaner Brauhaus restau­rant first in­tro­duced the well-known Bavar­ian tra­di­tion and cel­e­bra­tion to Bei­jing, mak­ing the an­nual fes­ti­val an at­trac­tion for Ger­man beer lovers and Ger­mans liv­ing in Bei­jing.

“Oktoberfest is much more than beer,” said Torsten Dressler, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Kempin­ski Ho­tel Bei­jing Lufthansa Cen­ter. “It’s all about the spirit of en­joy­ing life and about Bavar­ian tra­di­tions.”
