Two Best Places to Celebrate an Authentic Octoberfest in Manila

Two Best Places to Celebrate an Authentic Octoberfest in Manila


Have you ever experience an authentic Octoberfest celebration? No, we’re not talking about just drinking flimsy local beers at the back of a shopping mall. I reckon back in the 90’s and early 2000’s when a local beer brand leverage on this kind of celebration.

But see, consumers now are more discerning more than ever. Having so much noise and clutter presented to us we seek authenticity in brands, service, and products being offered to us. Do we want to get our money’s worth right? Most definitely! We worked hard for it and we expect anything less than the best.  So when we now say Octoberfest we’d want it to be celebrated in the most Bavarian way!
