Oktoberfest is one of the craziest beer related parties of the year as its a whole month of drinking! I never seem to cease the opportunity to drink awesome beers and indulge in the GERMAN FRANKFURTERRRRSSS and cuisine

As for this year, it started early as GAB started its media launch of its Oktoberfest at its Tavern on the 23rd September. GAB has teased us with "Big is always better" and what was in store for us? Something we wouldn't expect.

Guinness has unveiled Malaysia's Biggest Mug at the launch standing at 2.6m height and 1.72m wide. It was no other than a replica of the company's reknowned Oktoberfest 2014 promotional mug, creating a new record in the Malaysian Book Of Records at the event.

The guys

The Biggest Mug which took about a month to complete, is made out of fibre glass. The giant vessel, which can actually hold liquid, will be travelling the peninsular so consumers can have a closer look and partake in Malaysia’s Biggest Mug “Guess the Litre” challenge. The top 5 participants who provide the correct or closest estimated volume of liquid the receptacle can hold, wins a year’s supply of Tiger Beer.  

·       Oct 2: Festival Walk, Ipoh
·       Oct 3 and 4: Setia Walk, Puchong and Auto City, Penang
·       Oct 10 and 11: Scott Garden, PJ and Upper Penang Road

As for the hand-held version, the GAB Oktoberfest mug is available in two designs.
