The Hilton Pattaya will celebrate Oktoberfest for two nights next month with authentic beer, sausages and music.
General Manager Philippe Kronberg announced the Sept. 27-28 event during an August 6 press conference that also served as a beer-drinking contest. Reporters also sampled the foods to be showcased at the event.
Next month’s parties will unfold in the Hilton ballroom which will be transformed into a replica of Munich’s “Wiesn” Oktoberfest hall. Long wooden tables and benches will be positioned and booths will offer Bavarian food while an Austrian band performs, hosts games and tells jokes.
The management says ‘Prost’ with Paulaner Weissbier. (From left) Gerard Walker, Ken Whitty and his wife Kanpitcha Kongsombat, Markus Hesse, Peta Ruiter and general manager Philippe Kronberg.
Kenneth Whitty, managing director of Danmark Co., the importer and distributor of Paulaner beer, said the Hilton’s event will be held too early to offer the traditional Oktoberfest beer, but Bavarian Weissbier will be available.
Admission tickets will be 1500 baht per person and include food, water and a half-liter of beer. Additional beers will cost 220 baht.
