24 September 2021, Hong Kong SAR, China – Soon becoming a go-to destination for unique craft beers in the Central neighborhood, the newly launched Beer Garden at The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel continues to lift the beer drinking experience with its first Garden Oktoberfest from 4 to 16 October 2021.
Interconnected to the outdoor areas of restaurants on the Garden Level, the highly accessible and pet-friendly Beer Garden overlooks the hotel’s majestic façade and stately arches. Decked with lights, foliage and colourful flags, and with German music played live, the open-air bar is staging a cosy and exclusive Garden Oktoberfest.
Märzen, typically brewed before summer in March, was the original beer served at the Oktoberfest. Guests will have an opportunity to sample the traditional tastes of Germany with Gweilo Oktoberfest Märzen – a malty beer with light copper colour and remarkably comprehensive flavours.
Another highlight of the night is Gweilo Oktoberfest Helles. The golden-coloured lager with bright and creamy foam carries aromatic notes of bread crust and honey.
Festbier by Young Master Brewery is also available during the two-week event. Brewed locally in Hong Kong, the malty lager is celebrated for its rich, toasty and bready flavours.
Young Master Classic Pale Ale is brimming with delightful fruity, floral and zesty aromas from hand selected hops to balance its delicate malt base.
Pairing with the beers is an array of authentic German small plates prepared à la minute. Light and appetising, the Smoked Herring Salad (HKD 90*) presents a refreshing medley of green apple, beetroot and sour cream sauce to entice any palate.
Crispy and crackling on the outside and tender on the inside, the Pork Knuckle (HKD 225*) is served with pickled red cabbage and the flavourful dish goes perfectly with a large stein of chilled beer.
An Oktoberfest experience will not be complete without Nürnberger Sausage (HKD 95*). Complemented with classic sauerkraut and mashed potato, it is an all-time favourite in German festivals and party menus.
Brezel Bread (HKD 95*) is a staple in German beer gardens and The Murray’s house-made version stays true to the authentic recipe to presents this essential Oktoberfest classic.
Infused with onion, chive and sour cream, the house-made Smoked Salmon Mousse (HKD 95*) makes the perfect complement to the Brezel Bread.
