Oktoberfest is back and it's coming your way!

This Oktoberfest, consumers can opt for a more adventurous way to celebrate the annual merriment as Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB), the leading beer and stout brewer in Malaysia is bringing a fresh twist to the usual celebration. Consumers can elevate their experience by enjoying this festivity with GAB’s five premium brews including Heineken, the world’s No. 1 international premium beer; Guinness, the world’s No. 1 stout; premium Irish ale Kilkenny; Japan’s No.1 100% malt beer Kirin Ichiban and Paulaner, the No. 1 German wheat beer.

In line with GAB’s effort to give a modern touch to the classics found during Oktoberfest, GAB brought both the old and new under one roof at the celebration’s kick-off. One of Malaysia’s hottest comedians, Andrew Netto, was seen tickling the funny bones of the guests in attendance at a recent media launch. Locally-based German DJ Cee gave his rendition to the familiar Oktoberfest tunes and performed his remixed versions of traditional Oompah music, bringing the atmosphere to a whole new level. GAB also partnered with Chef Steven Yap from the Malaysian Food and Beverage Executives Association to reinvent 3 signature dishes inspired and infused with the celebrated brews. 

Join in the merryment that is Oktoberfest when you patronise your favourite tavern, and this year, we encourage you to reinvent your Deutschland experience and pair your favourite GAB brews with unique delicacies or local flavours that excite your very own taste buds.
While they say old is gold, festival goers can create new Oktoberfest memories by infusing unconventional entertainment at the festival, be it watching a comedy show, dancing away to various genres of music, laughing out loud at a funny video with your friends or just enjoying endless conversations. 

GAB has always endeavoured to add a modern twist to the annual festivities and this year is no different. According to Hans Essaadi, Managing Director of GAB, by infusing contemporary elements into the classic familiarities, they aim to offer different facets of the festival to them, giving them options to enjoy according to their preferences. GAB will continue to look at more opportunities and avenues to bring elevated, and unrivalled experiences with their brews to consumers.

Over the years, collectible Oktoberfest mugs have also become one of the main highlights serving as limited edition collectibles for consumers to remember their great times during the celebration. This year, GAB adds a new flavour to these Oktoberfest mugs where festival goers will be treated with two differently designed collectible Oktoberfest mugs, which can be pre-booked to have them personalised and collect them at participating outlets! I had my personalised mug at the media launch a few weeks ago, and I must say, the quality was really good!
