Editor’s Note – October 2020

I always looked forward to the end of September each year as for many years now (since the early 2000’s), there would be Oktoberfest parties and activities right here in Malaysia, to coincide with the festivities in Bavaria.

I attended the events which were by Luen Heng F&B (the importer and distributor of many German and European brews in Malaysia) in the early years, before the two brewers in Malaysia namely Carlsberg Malaysia, and Heineken Malaysia started organising their annual activations. Although we are almost half a world away from Germany, the activations did manage to provide us Malaysians a small taste of the festival.

Oktoberfest was initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese’s meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’

Through the years, Oktoberfest celebrations have had a number of different elements and activities, including horse races, street parades (in traditional costumes), live music, dancing and of course the appreciation of authentic Munich-brewed beer. At the Oktoberfest celebration, each Oktoberfest beer operates a number of tents which provide different drinking experiences.

Today, Oktoberfest has evolved to become a global celebration with almost 6.2 million visitors consuming over 7.5 million litres of beer and more than half a million chickens throughout the celebration last year in Munich.

Sadly, the celebrations in Bavaria, Germany have been cancelled this year due to Covid-19, while back here in Malaysia, the breweries are not having any Oktoberfest activations due to Covid-19 and also (I suspect) due to the current political situation.

Fortunately, Stammtisch German Restaurant at Plaza Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, and their sister outlet Bavarian Bierhaus at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara are having special Oktoberfest 2020 set menus featuring some wonderful platters, and beer promotions.
