Just can't let this time of year pass without sinking a few pretzels and steins of bier? Well, neither can the folks at Melbourne's German laneway haunt Hofbrauhaus, so they've been busy plotting a special virtual edition of their annual Oktoberfest celebrations. The team is beaming all the 'Loktoberfest' fun directly to living rooms across the city, this Saturday, October 10.

The Zoom festivities kick off at 5.30pm with a live-streamed keg tapping of Hofbrauhaus' own Oktoberfest bier, a first-time affair made in collaboration with the folks at Burnley Brewing. Then, it's on to a special edition of the venue's weekly live 'Bier Chat' tastings. Those keen to drink along can get a tasting pack delivered to their door, complete with a stein glass, some of the collaboration bier and a classic Bavarian Oktoberfest brew.

You can further transport yourself to Munich with a feast of goodies from Hofbrauhaus' takeaway and delivery menus. Get stuck into some bretzels and tap bier, along with finish-at-home dishes like pork knuckle, schnitzel and apfelstrudel. The Loktoberfest celebrations are set to continue into the night, with games, activities and general German-inspired frivolity. You can even sign up for the Zoom stein-holding competition and show off your arm strength for the chance to win a feed for six at Hofbrauhaus post-lockdown.
