Strong Beer Festival
to Jun 4

Strong Beer Festival

Praise the monks! The Okere Falls Strong Beer Festival is back in true German style over Queen’s Birthday Weekend! Join us for two amazing nights of beer-tasting, bonfires, and live music Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday June 4th 2017 from 5pm each night. 

In winter, when it’s still too cold to enjoy a lager or pilsner, the beers of choice are dark, strong, malty & warming. These beers were first produced during the ‘Strong Beer Season’ (Starkbierzeit), a tradition begun by 17th century Paulaner monks brewing what they called ‘Holy Father Beer’ (Sankt Vater Bier). 

For the best experience we recommend coming with a friend or two and tasting your way through our Strong Beer Passport including a stunning line-up of fantastic beers - dark and malty to flavour packed IPAs. Ciders and Wines and non-alcholic drinks will also be on sale. 

Tickets are now on sale for the 2017 Okere Falls Strong Beerfest!  Two nights of awesome music, delicious brews and great company as well as BUSES this year from town!
