On 23rd September we held the inauguration of the 9th edition of Gdansk Harvest Beer Festival - Oktoberfest 2017. The ceremonial opening of the first barrel of our specially-brewed Hotel Gdansk Boutique beer was accompanied by the performance of the famous Pod Wyrwigroszem Cabaret. Over 200 people attended this occasion. The beer enthusiasts were entertained with live music, wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, and as would be expected at an Oktoberfest, the exquisite beer, served in 1-litre mugs. The local-produced specialities of Old Danzig cuisine, as well as traditional Bavarian treats, were also abundant. The menu included, among other delicacies, Pork knuckle in beer served with fried cabbage, Old Danzig grilled sausages, Ribs a'la Brovarnia in stout, grilled cod in vegetable and herbs garnish, the traditional sour rye soup and chanterelle soup with smoked bacon.
