Pure Bier Fest launches across Sydney


Setting the challenge to all Mitmenschen, Bavarian Bier Café’s annual bier (not beer) festival, Pure Bier Fest, will return this May, with a range of tempting deals on offer across its eight Sydney venues and the chance for true bier lovers to become the ultimate Bavarian Bier Café ‘Man’ or ‘Woman’.


Pure Bier Fest is a month-long celebration of the German Bier Purity Law (Reinheitsgebot). Arguably the best consumer law ever made, the 1516 legislation declares that pure German bier can only contain four ingredients; hops, malt, yeast and water – the Bavarian Bier Café’s secret to great tasting pure bier.


The Pure Bier Fest will officially launch on Tuesday 1 May across all Bavarian Bier Café venues including; CBD favourites O’Connell St and York St, Moore Park’s Entertainment Quarter, beachside ‘burbs Manly and Bondi and closer to home locals Crows Nest, Parramatta and Chatswood.


Pure Bier Fest’s calendar of offers includes:



Pure Bier lovers need not fear the return to the daily grind, with Monday night Bier Flights aiding you back into the working week – $10 gets you a selection of specially imported and specialty Bavarian Pure Biers.



Think you can slam down a mega pork schnitzel? The ultimate Löwenschnitzel eating challenge will stretch bellies across Sydney on Tuesday night, with a bier on the house if you get to the last gulp.



Pure Bier taste challenges will test the most hoppy taste buds on a Wednesday night, pitching Pure Bier against your, ahem, ‘standard’ Aussie beers (not biers).



Thursdays will see the return of the Bier Akademies, run by Bavarian Bier Café’s own Bier Meisters who will be teaching bier lovers everything they need to know about Pure Bier.



Bier & Beats featuring DJ music will get patrons in the mood to wind down the working week on Fridays.


As well as offering great food and bier deals, each Bavarian Bier Café will challenge bier aficionados to become ‘The Man’ or ‘The Woman’. Over the Pure Bier Fest guests can participate in a challenge and earn tallies against their name on the Bavarian Bier Café blackboard. At the end of the Pure Bier Fest, the winning Man or Woman at each location will receive an invitation into the Stein Club, an exclusive invite only bier club, and the accolade of their name represented on a stein in the venue.


Bier enthusiasts will delight in the range of Bavarian biers on offer.  Whether you’re a traditionalist Löwenbräu Original devotee or if you’re enticed by the more subtle tropical flavours of Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Hell, there’s a bier on offer to tantalise all tastes for the amber liquid.


Bavarian Bier Café Managing Director, John Szangolies says: “Pure Bier Fest is a celebration of authentic, premium Bavarian Bier. It gives our patrons an opportunity to appreciate the quality ingredients and heritage of Bavarian Bier. Most importantly, we aim to put on a fun month where our guests can enjoy great food and bier while joining in the Pure Bier Fest spirit.”
