Getting Up Close and Personal with Donautal Duo Band at Paulaner Brauhaus OktoberFest

21 November, 2010

There are a number of restaurants in Jakarta Hotel Kempinski but if you are here in October, you have to go for the OktoberFest celebrations at Paulaner Brauhaus Kempinski.  Expect lots of good Bavarian food, lots of fun, dancing in lederhosen, great music and entertainment, complemented with freshly brewed Oktoberfest beer!

You can’t get a more authentic Oktoberfest beer anywhere else – as with tradition, Paulaner Brauhaus’ Oktoberfest beer is freshly brewed onsite according to the Bavarian Purity Law, which stipulates that it should contain nothing more than water, yeast, hops and barley malts. The Oktoberfest beer served follows the recipe from the early 19th century, with its color and content identical to what was served 200 years ago, amber-color with full-body and has a malty-flowery aroma.

The food is also unrivaled, especially its succulent and crispy pork knuckles and sausages.  The in-house brewed Oktoberfest beer further complements these yummy dishes.

For this year’s Oktoberfest, Paulaner Brauhuas had invited the famous Donautal Duo Band from Germany.  Throughout this 11-day Oktoberfest celebration, Paulaner Bräuhaus Jakarta was enlivened by the live music and entertainment of Donautal Duo Band. The band consists of three members: namely Martin who plays harmonica and keyboard, Leitenbauer Alois plays the guitar and the hilarious Franz Greul who will dance, sing and jokes with the audience.  We had the opportunity to get a very up close and personal experience with Franz Greul (a bit too close if you ask me :-)).  Check out this video for more info:
