#FoodPH - German Club Manila’s 81st Oktoberfest is Happening at Solaire!

In its press conference held recently, members of the media were given a preview of this year’s Oktoberfest and what the public should look out for. Decked in true Oktoberfest fashion, Solaire’s The Forum was transformed to vividly resemble the look and feel of Oktoberfest celebrations in Munich, Germany.

Guests were greeted with sumptuous appetizers. Openers came in a basket of oven-fresh German breads and pretzels, two types of salads: Munich style sausage salad and German potato salad, and a German cold cuts and cheese platter were shared and served as conversation starters.


Like in previous years, the master of ceremonies continues to be German Club’s Michael Scheile with Eiffelene Salvador as co-emcee, who introduced the hosts for the 81st Oktoberfest. Solaire’s Vice President of Food & Beverage Knut Becker expressed his delight in this renewed partnership, “This year’s 81st Oktoberfest will continue to be authentic and put the spotlight on the best of German culture. Following a very successful Oktoberfest celebration last year, we are thrilled to be hosting once again German Club Manila’s Oktoberfest celebrations and look forward to continuing this partnership.” 

Tobias Rast, German Club Manila’s President stated, “The German Club Manila is excited to celebrate this year’s Oktoberfest celebration once again with Solaire. The previous year broke our own records. We look forward to a more dynamic and vibrant celebration of the German culture through the Oktoberfest celebration.” 



Officially opening the event, Solaire VP of Food & Beverage Knut Becker, German Club Manila President Tobias Rast, and Solaire VP for Culinary Michael Dinges were invited up the stage for the ceremonial toast followed by the lively music that signals the beginning of the increasingly speedy tempo of the Fliegerlied, an Oktoberfest classic that brings the crowd on their feet and to the dance floor.

Solaire’s Vice President of Culinary Michael Dinges shared what’s special about this Oktoberfest, “The German Club Manila’s Oktoberfest here at Solaire underscores authenticity. From the Weihenstephan beer, entertainment by the Bavarian Sound Express, to the homemade German sausages and delicacies from family recipes, all have their roots from Germany. Guests will receive an overflowing selection of Germany’s best tastes and flavors, surrounded by the finest Filipino hospitality.”

Lederhosen clad gents and dirndl wearing ladies emerged with Bavarian delicacies. A variety of sausages like the Weisswurst, and an assortment of meats such as pork schnitzel, Swabian red bratwurst, Kaesekrainer and veal sausages, were presented in mouthwatering platters and samplers.
Classic desserts like the apple and walnut strudel with vanilla sauce and ice cream, and Kaiserschmarn, a dish made of shredded rum raisin pancakes with berry compote and vanilla sauce were the perfect balancer after a hearty dose of German goodness. 


To show the kind of fun to be expected on the 81st Oktoberfest, guests were invited to a beer drinking game and a food relay to test the competitiveness of each player. The gentlemen were given two 500mL steins filled with beer that they must race to finish in record breaking time. The same mechanics apply to ladies, but with only one 500mL stein of beer. Groups got a kick out of the food relay game as each team raced to finish more pretzels and sausages following a heavy serving of German fare. For those who weren’t able to participate, an exciting raffle draw await offering the chance to win coveted prizes.

The 81st Oktoberfest will be a surefire hit with its knockout roster of the most authentic German dishes, and astonishing program filled with exciting entertainment.
