Its that time of year again, where Busan’s finest breakout the lederhosen and dance to the best Russian Band while drinking fine German beer.
Thats right ladies and gentleman its time for Oktoberfest at Hurshimchung. The German beer house is located in the same building as the giant spa, attached to the Hotel Nongshim, and is quite the event when you walk in. The brewhouse brews its own beer on site, which is more than most Korean bars can say and they stock the classic german favorites. Food there is delicious (albeit expensive) but well worth it. The highlight however, is the distinctly Russian band that plays there quite regularly while drunk Koreans dance around wildly drinking and eating to their hearts content.
Oktoberfest, takes it up a notch. The cost is 10,000 KRW for a mug of beer, which you can then refill for 3,000 more. What a deal!!! The classic russian band may make an appearance and I am sure more than just Koreans will be joining in the dancing antics.
There are supposed to be live bands playing traditional German music as well, some drinking contests, accordion performances, a photo and game zone and several prize drawings are all in store for this years action!
The festival runs October 10-12th 2013 from 4 pm to 2 am
