Durban- TOPS at SPAR Bierfest is back for a six!

It’s no coincidence that in the world of beer, good things come in sixes. It’s why we have the six-pack and why the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest celebrates its sixth year in existence as SA’s favourite proudly national annual touring festival of Bavarian bier culture! With a brand new venue, refreshed festival layout and a richly expanded entertainment programme, TOPS at SPAR Bierfest 2016 invites you to get in touch with your inner Germaniac, lug on the lederhosen, dust off the dirndls and get ready to party with added oompah at Sibaya, from Friday the 30th of September to Saturday the 1st of October.

The TOPS at SPAR Bierfest bring its barrels of beautiful bier to Sibaya. Whether you’re eighteen or eighty, whether you’re a loslappie or a Heidi wannabe, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest brings together the best elements of the legendary Bavarian Oktoberfest in a uniquely South African setting. Amidst a menu packed with traditional Bavarian foods will again be the legendary 1 litre (half-litre for the ladies) steins of freshly-brewed Bavarian recipe craft biers, traditional Oktoberfest games, on-the- spot competitions, oompah music, party pop rock favourites and of course, a chance to win a trip to the actual Oktoberfest in Munich 2017 in the offering.

As with all its events, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest supports responsible drinking and will have a range of options on hand to make getting home safe after a few drinks the most hassle-free and affordable experience it can be. #DrinkSmart!
