Hallertau Hop Harvest Festival
Saturday March 24, 4pm till 11pm.
An Oktoberfest in West Auckland with eight piece Oomph Band complete with song sheets, singing and general merriment. We have a special Bavarian menu including traditional Kassler (smoked pork) and Bratwurst sausage with sauerkraut.
The band kicks of at 5pm; tickets are $20 on the door. This includes your commemorative German stein to keep and first stein of beer.
We have brewed a special Bavarian Kellerbier to help celebrate the occasion. The Kellerbier is a 5 % German amber lager that is served un-filtered, directly from the barrel on the bar!
It pours with a big, creamy, long-lasting, head; has a golden-bronze colour; a wonderfully fresh, perfumy hop aroma; a remarkably smooth, almost oily, malty palate; very fresh flavours; and a soft finish. It is beautifully balanced, but leans to the dry side. This is a delicious, appetising beer and a true salute to Bavaria’s fast-vanishing artisanal tradition.
