During the first ceremony in October 1992, Paulaner Bräuhaus Beijing introduced the world’s best known Bavarian tradition and celebration to the city of Beijing. This introduction has since then been regarded as the "fifth" season in Beijing's celebratory calendar, adding additional value to its rich cultural and international appeal. This annual festival has since then become embedded into Beijing’s social life, attracting German beer lovers and fans of authentic Bavarian cuisine; making it a never-to-miss event.
Paulaner beer is handcrafted while using only four basic ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and water. The “Oktoberfest Bier” is the special festive beer only available during the Oktoberfest. Wolfgang Sesser, the resident master brewer who has 18 years of experience from the Paulaner Brewery in Munich, guarantees that all of his beers are brewed in accordance to the Bavarian Purity Law, ensuring superior taste and quality glass after glass.

Our culinary expert, Bernhard Cekon, Executive Sous Chef at Paulaner Bräuhaus Restaurant, has designed a special Oktoberfest menu which ensures that the great taste and authentic flavors of Bavarian cuisine are enjoyed by all who participate in the celebration.
