The Okere Falls Beerfest is back again for October 2018!  

We're kicking off the festivities on Wednesday with a beer tasting with GARAGE PROJECT from Wellington! After we've all had a drink and settled into the week, we take a day to celebrate our neighbors and regulars with Thursday Local's Night - a classic Okere Falls Beerfest evening with Schwein (Pork Roast) and live music. Friday and Saturday are ticketed events filled with fantastic bands, including our favourite high-energy, horn-blowing Festival Band! 

Friday night line up is confirmed with awesome sounds from 5 pm! Bands include dynamic acoustic beats and funky sounds of one of last year's crowd favourites, Whitechapel Jak. Headlining and back by popular demand from a short winter performance is Otium, an awesome group of lads bringing reggae, dub & funk from Whangarei - super fun and super talented.  

Saturday Line-up is also confirmed with live music from 12 noon. Coming in early we have local Rotorua celebrity Lloyd Ackroyd with his smooth guitar and jazz/blues vibe to warm up the afternoon, followed by bluesy Americana folk-rock sounds of The Miltones. Heading into the evening we have Phil Edward's Band, filled with funk & reggae vibes, before we go out with a bang accompanied by Waiheke International Soul Orchestra!

Schweinshaxe Pork Roast Dinner Tickets are available every night however, we have limited numbers so please purchase your ticket in advance to avoid disappointment. 

A range of German Bretzels, Griller Burgers, Bratwurst Sausages and more will also be available for purchase on the night.  Our fantastic collection of wines, ciders and NZ beers on tap, and our new low and non-alcoholic beverages, will also be on hand.  

Come and join us for an amazing week of German Festivities. Ziggy, Ziggy, Ziggy! Oi, Oi, Oi.
