Oktoberfest Brisbane

October is one of our favourite times of the year, and it’s not hard to see why.

Aside from it being the most spooktacular month (we’ve been planning our Halloween costumes since January), it brings the opportunity to don our dirndls and break out our steins in celebration of Oktoberfest!

If giant pretzels, sizzlin’ bratwurst and German brews are up your alley, get your shnitz together and check out our guide for where to join the festivities.

Newstead Brewing Co | Newstead

Come October 6, this brewpub is transforming into a German-style beer hall and tapping six German beers, as well as their classic brews, alongside a full German menu and tunes by The Huns. Tickets are $60 for five hours of tunes, food and a limited-edition NBCo stein glass with four fills.

Munich Brauhaus | South Brisbane

South Bank has been in perpetual Oktoberfestivities since the opening of Munich Brauhaus’ Bavarian Bier Hall, which is an obvious choice for celebrations. Sing your heart out as you raise a glass to live German music, dress in your lederhosen best, and smash down snags and pork knuckle like no one’s business.

Burger Project | CBD & South Brisbane

In the spirit of Oktoberfest, Burger Project is giving away 100 Oktoberfest burgers packed with golden crumbed chicken schnitzel and topped with creamy mushroom sauce. Missed out on a free burg? They’ll be available for $13.90 until December 2nd, as well as limited-edition Oktoberfest desserts with vanilla soft serve, salted caramel and pretzels for just $5.90.


Oktoberfest Brisbane | Brisbane Showgrounds

Brisbane’s biggest Oktoberfest celebration is rolling around once again, and this year’s is set to go off with a bang(ers and mash). Hosted in the Brisbane Showgrounds, there’s plenty of hand-crafted German beer, food, and wine to sample, so make sure you’re hungry. As well as endless eats, this year’s line-up is packed with plenty of live entertainment, competitions, events and rides.

Regatta | Toowong

The German Festival returns to Regatta’s Laneway on October 12th – 14th, showcasing a selection of draught and bottled beer as well wines, liqueurs and an array of tantalising eats. With free entry and live music, there’s no excuse to miss this.  

German Club | East Brisbane

It doesn’t get more German than the German Club. Get ready for a three-day bender of authentic German beer, sausages, pork knuckle and activities from the 26th to the 28th. Tickets are available on the door, so we’ll catch you there over a currywurst!

Time to snag your spot.
