GAB Oktoberfest 2013 campaign was officially launched after a reenactment of the royal wedding between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese that was held in Munich in 1810, which gave birth to the Oktoberfest celebration..Hans Essaadi, Managing Director of GAB says, “This year, GAB has planned even more exciting and engaging activities and I am confident that with our award-winning portfolio of beers,we will once again set the standard among our loyal consumers for providing drinking experiences that are both fresh and engaging.”
As the 5th year running that GAB is organizing this globally-renowned celebration in a big way right here in Malaysia, this year’s Oktoberfest celebrations will include a series of 14 historically themed parties nationwide, special promotions featuring a special edition 1 litre Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug and GAB’s entire portfolio of award-winning beers, including the original Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier.
“We at GAB are especially proud to continue making the Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier available for our consumers, which is one of only six beers allowed to be called an official Oktoberfest Bier and served on Oktoberfest. Be sure to try out this distinctive, limited edition lager at the selected outlets offering it during our Oktoberfest celebrations,” said Essaadi.
Guests were able to sample authentic German Oktoberfest cuisine, as well as traditional Oktoberfest activities including traditional German folk dances, beer mug holding competitions and ‘Nail the Wood’ (I won a t-shirt from diz game…hehehe), a traditional German game which requires participants to have both power and accuracy. Adding to the celebratory air was the presence of Crown Prince Ludwig, Princess Therese and their royal procession who brought a historical touch to the event.The royal entourage regaled participants with interesting tales from times long past.
