Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers’ Naomi Tham, Kelly Siew, Andy Kho and I went over to RP in Saujana Resort on 24 September 2014 for the launch of Carlsberg Malaysia’s Oktoberfest 2014. The Malaysian launch coincides with the same period that the annual Bavarian beer festival in Munich (the celebrations in Munich started on 20 September) is held, and for the 4th year running, Carlsberg Malaysia has once again brought Oktoberfest to our shores.
You can read about how it all started back in 2011 here – https://timchew.net/2011/09/29/malaysias-own-oktoberfest-launch-280911/
As usual, the celebrations will be happening at selected Carlsberg pubs and bars across the country in the true spirit of Oktoberfest, with steins of German brews Erdinger, Franziskaner and Lowenbrau, and Malaysian favourite Carlsberg on offer to consumers. You can bring home the limited edition 2014 Carlsberg Malaysia Oktoberfest steins, enjoy attractive beer promotions at affiliated restaurants and pubs, however this year you can also stand a chance to win cash prizes from the “Million Ringgit Draw” promotions sponsored by Magnum 4D.
The ceremonial “keg tapping” to signify the official start of Oktoberfest had Henrik tapping in the tap with Peter J Hourigan, General Manager and Vice President of Saujana Resort Kuala Lumpur; Kenneth Soh, General Manager of Luen Heng F&B Sdn Bhd and Kai Schlickum, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Mercedes-Benz Malaysia.
To be in the running for complimentary Carlsberg Malaysia Oktoberfest’s steins and beer bike express lane passes, just tell Carlsberg Malaysia why you and your friends want to be part of the Carlsberg Malaysia Oktoberfest party by using the hashtag #CarlsbergMalaysiaOktoberfest on the Carlsberg Malaysia Oktoberfest Facebook wall – www.facebook.com/CarlsbergMalaysiaOktoberfest and provide names of your three friends who will be joining you at the party.
Carlsberg Malaysia’s Oktoberfest 2014 will culminate in a three-day party at One Utama shopping centre, taking place from 10-12 October 2014. This huge party sees thousands of beer lovers (myself included!) throng the event venue to enjoy the German food and of course loads of beers, all set in a huge party setting with an authentic German band rocking the stage with some traditional German songs as well as some evergreen rock hits!
Be the first 50 consumers at the party to show the organisers a selfie with any Carlsberg Malaysia product, tag the photo with #CarlsbergMalaysiaOktoberfest and upload it to your Instagram and Twitter and you will receive one limited edition Carlsberg Oktoberfest 2014 Stein!
