The Oktoberfest in Munich is an event that is known world-wide, and attracts thousands of visitors Last year, the Althus Bistro&Bar in the Landesgemeindeplatz in the heart of Zug also introduced this well-loved Bavarian tradition to the old town area of Zug. And the event will be repeated this year, with everyone being invited to a Bavarian-style Oktoberfest evening
Eric Bourgeois, who took over the Althus Bar last year, told us about the event: “We decided to bring the Bavarian tradition alive here once again in Switzerland, and made some inquiries to see if we could import some beer from Munich. We found a distributor selling Hofbräu Oktoberfest beer and grasped the opportunity. As this age-old festival is all about celebrating the harvest of local beer hops and the end of summer, we decided it was the perfect occasion to make it locally our own”.
Lederhosen are always in fashion at the Oktoberfest
The Althus also has its own hop garden in Sursee, and they have thereby decorated the bar with their own hops to inform our guests of this, and to create a real atmosphere in the bar. The rest of the establishment has been decorated in Bavarian fashion, and all the staff have their Dirndls and Lederhosen.
On the 18th September 2021, traditional Bavarian food will be served, along with famous 1-litre ‘Mass’ glasses, filled to the brim with golden Oktoberfest beer! What a great combination and tradition to bring people together no matter the conditions
Tickets are CHF 50.00 per person for 1 Mass of beer and a Bavarian dinner.
