BHS Oktoberfest Beer & Bavarian Food Tasting

September 24, 2012

The Bermuda High School will be holding its first Oktoberfest on Friday, October 5 from 5:30-8:30pm in the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the School Campus.

Festival-goers will enjoy authentic German pub music while eating brats with sauerkraut, authentic German pretzels and schnitzel. There will also be a variety of beers, including genuine Oktoberfest beers to sample.

Director of Advancement at BHS, Jennifer Burland Adams, shared, “The QEH will be transformed into a traditional Bavarian Beer Hall for our first Oktoberfest. We are very grateful for our partners in this event, Bermuda Import Export, Burrows Lightbourne, Goslings and Miles, who are providing a variety of beers for tasting and to Buzz which has created a special Bavarian Tasting Menu exclusively for this event.”

Beers available to taste include Sam Adams Oktoberfest, Hoegaarten, Boddingtons Pub Ale, Kirin Ichiban and more than ten other choices, including some niche beers from all over the world.

In order to get people in the mood, in addition to traditional German beer anthems playing in the background, a contest for the most authentically dressed man and woman will be awarded at the end of night.

Mrs. Burland Adams added, “We would like to invite anyone interested in trying authentic Bavarian food and a variety of beers to come out for what will be a fun event. This is something different to do on a Friday night and a unique way for BHS to raise funds. Ticket numbers will be limited due to space, so go online and purchase tickets today!”

BHS noted that this event is for people aged 18 and over only – it is not appropriate for children. Tickets are $50 and include unlimited beer and Bavarian food tasting. For those who wish to just purchase tickets for beer or food tasting, this is available for $30 and $20 respectively.

Tickets are available for purchase at: or by calling 278-3004. All proceeds will go to the BHS Charitable Trust which provides funding for various School programmes and initiatives, including the Financial Aid Programme.
