You may have heard that Oktoberfest is coming to Geelong. Perhaps someone told you on your morning commute; an elderly gentleman named Hans, perhaps, who was dressed resplendently and smelt like bratwurst. However you have received your Oktoberfest information, you would know that the Geelong Racecourse is set to host one of the world’s oldest and most popular festival traditions on October 10. Geelong has some serious connections, so they’ll be serving up a tasty selection of German brews including Hofbräu, Franziskaner, Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr, Löwenbräu and Paulaner. Music, a best beard competition, a strongman event and barrel races will be among the entertainment.
