- Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is the only place outside of Munich where you can enjoy the authentic Oktoberfestbier, the website states. It’s shipped directly from the Hofbräuhaus Brewery in Germany, following a 500-year-old beer purity law known as the Reinheitsgebot.
Sip on Authentic Oktoberfestbier
What sets Hofbräuhaus apart from the rest? Well, it’s the only place in town where you can savor the same Oktoberfestbier that’s poured at the legendary Oktoberfest in Munich. So, you know you’re in for an authentic taste of Bavaria, where the tradition dates back to 1810 when Oktoberfest was first held to celebrate a royal wedding, according to Hofbräuhaus’ website. Since then, it’s become the world’s largest beer festival.
Feast on Bavarian Delights
But it’s not just about the beer. Hofbräuhaus serves up an extensive menu of traditional Bavarian dishes that perfectly complement your brews.
