If you fancy getting a jump on this year's Oktoberfest celebrations, The Bavarian certainly has you sorted. The group is expanding its stable of German-inspired bier halls, opening the doors to its latest venue at Highpoint Shopping Centre this weekend. And to celebrate, they're handing out a whopping 500 free hotdogs, from 5pm on Friday, August 31.
The hot dogs are made using the Bavarian's signature frankfurter — wood-smoked pork and beef — topped with sauerkraut, tomato sauce and crisp shallots. Given the eatery is just as famous for its sausage offering as it is for its schnitzels and crispy pork knuckles, that's quite the deal.
The giveaway is a little taster of the new venue's full Oktoberfest program, which runs from September 22 to 27. Throughout the week, there'll be five limited-edition Oktoberfest beers heading the tap list, Bavarian-style food menus and a swag of food challenges to ease the blow of not living up the real deal over in Munich.
And the German-style fun continues long after the final Oktoberfest keg is tapped — Bavarian Highpoint will be dishing up authentic eats and icy cold steins, all year round.
