Hey, it's the start of Oktober, and that can only mean one thing, Oktoberfest Malaysia is in town! Throughout the month of October, drinkers can celebrate Oktoberfest with a series of themed parties across the country. GAB’s selection of award-winning beers including Tiger, Guinness, Heineken and the official Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier, are brewed exclusively for the Oktoberfest season. Look out for the special edition 1 liter Ceramic Oktoberfest Mug when you enjoy GAB’s iconic brews!

Some interesting facts about Oktoberfest Malaysia can be found below:
- This celebration initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese's meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’
- Through the years, Oktoberfest celebrations have had a number of different elements and activities, including horse races, street parades (in traditional costumes), live music, dancing and of course the appreciation of authentic Munich-brewed beer.
- Currently, Oktoberfest is a truly global celebration with almost 7 million visitors consuming over 7 million litres of beer and more than half a million chickens throughout the celebration (based on 2011 figures), which lasts between 16 – 18 days from the middle of September to the first Sunday of October
