Last night I was very lucky to be invited to the Anzapfen of Oktoberfest Brisbane. True to the traditions of Oktoberfest, no beer was served until the first Fass was ceremoniously tapped by the Bürgermeister of our city and the first Mass presented to our state representative. Lord Mayor of Brisbane – Graham Quirk did the honours, passing the first Bier to Grace Grace MP.
It was a fantastic evening and wonderful to catch up with so many of the amazing German language teachers from the region. If you have time over the next two weeks, get down to the show grounds and check it out.
