Oktoberfest is here again! What comes to mind when you think of Oktoberfest? Beer, of course! A celebration of joy involving some freshly brewed beer or a smooth draught.


I ain’t much of a beer person, more to liquor – but should there be a stream of foamy and ice-cold beer cascading into a chilled mug in fronta me, count me in!

Courtesy of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB), we had a little warm sharing session on this year’s Oktoberfest and its general promotions all around town. Wanna know what they are? Imma tell you in a bit.

Can i haz more?

The outlet in which we sat snugly was Sanook, a Restaurant & Bar set in a very serene stretch of other thriving food outlets by the Kelana Jaya lake.They will be selling Tiger draught for RM36 per jug during Happy Hour and guess what, with purchase of 3 jugs you get one free plate of Calamari!

But hey, if ya think beer ain’t enought to satiate your appetites, check out their other finger food too. There were also main courses, but it was already time for supper! So yeah, here’s what we ordered

Showdown! Pepperoni Pizza

Onion Rings!

Oktoberfest celebrations in Germany are also known as the largest public festival held yearly on Theresienwiesen in Munich, Germany, upon which gigantic tents are built accommodating some 6 million visitors each year.

As the years went by, not only did Oktoberfest become increasingly modernized as an occasion to get together with friends and family to enjoy the best beers brewed, it became a worldwide celebrated event.

From now till 15th November 2009, there are lotsa promotions that would make any drinker grin with joy! Time to throw a house partayyy with these Oktoberfest promotions from GAB :



At β€œGiant” hypermarkets, pick up a six-pack of Tiger Beer and get 30% off a six-pack of Anglia and at β€œTesco” you will be able to purchase 2 six-packs of Tiger Beer for the special price of RM52.90.


With purchase of any 2 big bottles of Tiger, Heineken, Guinness or Anchor Smooth, you will get RM2 off! Better still, you also have the flexibility to mix and match any 2 bottles between the 4 brews, so you can always pick your favourite.


Participating F&B outlets in the Klang Valley will also be offering Happy Hour promotions like the one you’re enjoying today. Throughout the Oktoberfest season, enjoy special pricing of Tiger, Heineken, Guinness or Anchor draught beers, as well as irresistible snack combos.

Cheers for Oktoberfest parties ahead!

Oh and I felt 2 notches smarter after the sharing session! Did you know the difference between a regular can or bottle of beer and a draught beer from the keg? What about drafts and tapped beer? Or.. unpasturized beer? Lager beer? Which one is smoother?
