Entertain corporate guests or clients in true German style
Oktoberfest Corporate VIP tent offers traditional German fare
This year, companies and their guests and clients can celebrate the world's second largest Oktoberfest in true German style. Hofbräuhaus Newport, in partnership with the European-American Chamber of Commerce (EACC), will offer a private Stammtisch experience modeled after Munich's Oktoberfest at this year's Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati.
The private Stammtisch tent will feature signature Hofbräuhaus menu items and its renowned Oktoberfest beer straight from Munich, as well as German bands and friendly servers in Hofbräuhaus attire.
"Our goal is to provide something special for businesses by replicating this authentic German experience," said Eric Haas, Co-Owner of Hofbräuhaus. "Companies can conduct business and entertain clients and employees inside the Stammtisch tent. Then those guests can enjoy everything the world's second largest Oktoberfest has to offer."
Hofbräuhaus worked closely with the Austrian-Swiss-German committee of the EACC and German-owned companies to ensure they could deliver the real thing.
"There has been a lot of energy and planning behind this idea," said Anne Cappel, Executive Director of the European-American Chamber of Commerce. "To produce a genuine experience just like Oktoberfest in Munich, everything was chosen very carefully - from the long wooden tables and benches to the traditional Bavarian fare and the beer straight from Hofbräuhaus Munich, served in real beer steins."
"Oktoberfest is something that began as a celebration of Prince Ludwig's marriage. He later opened the Royal Brewery, the Hofbräuhaus, for all the citizens to enjoy," added Haas. "Hofbräuhaus Newport is thrilled be able to enhance the festival experience for those that truly understand and appreciate authentic German treatment."
During Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati, September 22-23, the EACC/Hofbräuhaus Corporate VIP Tent will be located between Sycamore and Broadway streets in the P&G Gardens.
Companies or individuals can reserve tables of eight in the Stammtisch Tent in four-hour blocks. There are several tables still available in select time slots. For availability and reservations, please visit www.europe-cincinnati.com and click on Events.
