Oktoberfest at BaseHall
Time Out says
Picture this – the ultimate party filled with beer, German-inspired snacks, and other traditional festivities. That's right, Oktoberfest has arrived! Though, instead of jetting off to Munich, BaseHall is bringing the most authentic version of Oktoberfest to Hong Kong. From October 23 to 24, BaseHall will transform into a traditional Bavarian beer tent, bringing with it a couple of new Eastern twists.
Exclusive to the event, a light and crisp Oktoberfest Pilsner by Young Master Ales will be available on tap, along with their full range of brews such as the 1842 Island IPA, Fleeting Clouds Wheat beer, and the Hak Mo Sheung Double Chocolate stout. To ensure you can enjoy a refreshing taste every time, peach and butterscotch schnapps will also be available as a palate cleanser for all.
Other than the vast array of beverages, the food vendors at BaseHall have been working hard to create dynamic fusions of their own food with German snacks. Treehouse has whipped up a sauerkraut pizza using vegan cheese and CBD beer braised cabbage, while other vendors will be offering dishes such as the sotong (squid) pretzel or a banh mi xiu mai (Vietnamese meatball sandwich) provide visitors with a perfect bite of both East and West.
Aside from munching and chugging, many other traditional activities will be taking place, including a traditional cask-tapping ceremony on both days at 7pm to mark the start of the festivities. Guests can test their stamina at the beer stein-holding competition, spoil themselves silly with endless servings of lebkuchen (German gingerbread), or take part in a cookie-decorating session for something a little more family-friendly.
