Oktoberfest 2017 kicked off at Melbourne's Hophaus Southgate on Saturday 16th September, with former Melbourne Football Club Captain, David Neitz, trading his football jersey for Lederhosen, to take over his official duties as Hoptoberfest's Mayor for this year's festivities. With his German heritage proudly on show, Neitz, also the founder of Brewmanity Beer Company, welcomed guests to the fest launch at Hophaus with the traditional Tapping of the Keg. Festivities run through until Sunday 22nd October.
With over six million people predicted to attend the 207th anniversary of Oktoberfest in Germany, Hophaus Bavarian Bier Bar Grill will transport Melbourne to Munich with a five-week program of festivities and events.
Hophaus’ Oktoberfest 2017 will see the return of a cult favourite calendar event: the Teckelrennen Annual Dachshund Race on 23 September.
