O’ Zapft is!
In English, this means “it is tapped!” The ritual of tapping the first Oktoberfest barrel marks the start of the annual Oktoberfest celebration in Munich. My darling sister is over there now, having her first original Oktoberfest.. but that doesn’t mean i can’t have fun as well.
It’s been a while since I’ve been for an event, so what a nice way to start mingling again with the girls. Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers were invited to Brotzeit for the launch of Oktoberfest on Saturday 17th September 2011.
i just adore the Oktoberfest hat and it matched my dress for that day! simple joys of life ^_^
The ambiance is wonderful and the wall of just beer bottles was a lovely added touch.
Almost simultaneously across the globe, on the same day, Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant in Mid Valley will observe this tradition by having its very own tapping of the first barrel at 7.30pm, a symbolic gesture to turn on its Paulaner Oktoberfest bier tap, making available the much awaited brew. Brotzeit‘s customers will be one of the first to savour this year’s Paulaner Oktoberfestbier on the tap paired perfectly with authentic cuisine prepare by our very own Bavarian Executive Chef, Helmut.
Chef Helmut in his German Trachten summer attire, officiated the launch by doing the tapping honors of this year’s Paulaner Oktoberfestbier!
Oktoberfest traditions date back to the fairy tale wedding of the then Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig to Princess Therese in 1810, on October 12th to be precise, where for the first time the local community were invited. With free flow of beer and abundant food, the celebrations went on for 5 days. So much fun they had, that it was repeated year after year, each year on a grander scale than the last, to what has today become Munich’s famed Oktoberfest – the world’s largest beer festival celebrated universally. Only six Munich breweries are allowed to brew Oktoberfestbier in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516 and the breweries of Paulaner and Hacker Pschorr are two of the six .
Mynn and I at the Oktoberfest. we just had to hijack the hats… they totally matched us in our cute little dresses. heee ^_^
Taking a moment to think on what to tweet.
Besides the beer, the party was served with Brotzeit SchnitzelTag specialities including Jagerschnitzel, Reisenschnitzel, Bauern cordon schnitzel varieties.
Mynn, Wilee and I going gaga over the awesome food.
Riesenschnitzel: A giant breaded escalope of pork served on a wooden board and a side of Katroffelpuree (mashed potatoes) yum yum yummers
From top right to left: Jagerscnitzel (RM38) : grilled escalope of pork with mushroom sauce, Kartoffelhappen: spicy Potato Wedges, Chicken breast with mustard and side of mash potatoes , Cordon bleu: breaded escaloped of pork stuffed with fine leg ham and melted cheese. Absolutely sinful, but they were really good! Check out the menu.
Here’s the wonderful Chef Helmut of Brotzeit together with Mynn, Me and Wilee. Don’t we just look adorable with our hats hehe
What you see here is an amazing pizza.. that i didn’t get to try because the girls all walloped it up as i was out talking to a friend >.< but that’s ok.. less calories for me 😛 But the pizza looks awesome doesn’t it. Ham pizza (Brotzeitflade) – tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, belly bacon, leg ham, green bell peppers, red bell peppers, cocktail onions and mushrooms. The price for this is RM32.
Ok truth be told i was still on my crazy diet, so i was ecstatic when the chef brought out something that could appease my poor stomach and still permitted me to remain a good girl to my diet. A chicken breast platter with a side of salad. Yummm
And to finish the food escapade. We had the Emperor’s Cake! Also known as Kaiserschmarren
and is shredded pancake with rum and raisins served with plum sauce.
ooooo and this is one beer you have to try called the Mango Bir! mmpppphh yummilicious
We found a lighter that looked like a gun, so Mynn and I decided to have some with fun it :P. in the middle is our dear friend Jason, who also joined in on the beer beer fun.
