Swakopmund Oktoberfest

The Swakopmund Oktoberfest was held at the Strand Hotel at their Brewer and Butcher this past weekend.

With beer tastings and traditional German food, it turned out to be a fulfilling and exciting night. Guests were treated with a welcome beer upon arrival with a colourful ambiance set by the beautifully dressed waiters and waitresses.
A tour of the mini brewery proved both beneficial and informative with a tour of the facility and step by step explanation of the brewing process. Glen Uahindua, a beer connoisseur at the event detailed the exciting process of extraction, heating and cooling involved in the beer making process.
The result of this is the Marzen beer. A special brew (Madarina weissbier) and the Helles beer add to the selection.
In addition, a gorgeous buffet with locally produced varieties coupled the night well with music from a DJ Hilde Povanhu, the organiser of the event is proud of the turn out as it allows them to continue the good work the do in the community. The Ho-tel’s restaurant runs a soup kitchen for children and learners from schools such as Coastal High School in Swakopmund, as well as other disadvantaged children.
