- October 5, 2017
7:00 pm - 11:15 pm
Traditionally the Canberra Brewers’ biggest event of the year, Oktoberfest is a celebration of beer, food and friends!
Similar to the approach last year, in 2017 we are heading to Zierholz brewery in Fyshwick, Canberra’s own craft brewery borne out of proud German brewing traditions.
Tickets for financial members cost $15, subsidised by the club, with members’ guests able to buy full-cost tickets at $55. At this stage we’ll set a limit of one guest per member, but will open that up if we don’t sell out in the week before the event. Entry includes a beer from the bar and a brewer’s banquet dinner.
Bring your beer!
We will be running the ‘Best of the Fest’ beer competition again. Bring along your best German beer for the night and enter it in a very relaxed competition. There will also be thank you prizes for top-3 beers.
Prizes this year will be:
1st: A $50 Gift Voucher to spend at Zierholz Premium Brewery.
2nd: $40 Gift Voucher to Mashematics or Belco Brew Supplies.
3rd: $20 Gift Voucher to Mashematics or Belco Brew Supplies.
There is nothing worse than a dry Oktoberfest! Brew your favourite German styles. This would be a great time to show off your newest kettle soured beers (gose or berliner weisse). Or maybe you have a rich malty beer that would compliment the hearty fare. Of course, if you don’t have anything German to offer, all homebrew is welcome!
Of course we will have the usual raffles, with great prizes, including Zierholz paddles up for grabs on the night.
We’d encourage as many of you proud brewers as possible to dress full-German:

Since its inception in 2005, Zierholz has been Canberra's Fresh Beer Company. We brew our beers from the finest of ingredients, and since we're right in your backyard, the time from our tanks to your glass keeps the brews fresh and flavoursome. Our recipes are German inspired, with a special Canberra twist, to make some of the finest craft beers in all the land. You can find us on taps all over the ACT and beyond, just ask at your local bar if they're pouring the good stuff. Of course, we also have our own venue, in Fyshwick. Swing by, say hi, and have a taste - we promise it'll be the best thing you do today!
