THE OKTOBERFEST EXTRAORDINAIRES
BY KATE LISTON-MILLS

Löwenbräu Keller

L

öwenbräu Keller is an authentic Munich-style restaurant located on the corner of Playfair and
Argyle Streets, plum in the heart of The Rocks. Their top-notch imported biers knocked back
with some belly-warming tucker is exactly what you need this Oktoberfest. In accordance
with the strict laws of Bavarian Purity in 1516, all of Löwenbräu Keller’s biers are concocted using
just four natural ingredients: malt, hops, yeast and water.

T

rying to choose the brew
to fill your stein will be
almost as fun as pronouncing
it, with names such as, Spaten
Munchen, Hofbräu Dunkel
and the Franziskaner HefeWeissbier Dunkel, you’ll be
tipsily tongue-tied all the way
to the bar. And you may go
to Löwenbräu Keller to drink
bier but the food is a massive
selling point. Authentic
eats to consume and soak
up that quality bier include,
Schweinshaxn, over-roasted
pork knuckle dolloped
with sauerkraut, mash and
bier sauce; Gemischte
Wurstplatte, a select array of
fine sausages married with
sauerkraut and mash; and
the Löwensnitzel, a giant
pork snitzel accompanied
with tasty French fries and
mayonnaise. Löwenbräu Keller
is open everyday and night
of the week and offers a fine

dining and ‘biering’ experience Oktoberfest. This season will

TOM’S
TASTING TIPS
• 2 tsp coriander and cumin
powder
• 1 tsp garam masala and cumin
seeds
• 35g coriander, finely chopped
• 1 tsp tandoori powder
• ½ tsp ground black pepper
• 15g melted, unsalted butter
• 2 tsp rapeseed oil
• 15g melted butter (for basting)

METHOD:
1. Make the masala marinade by blending the ginger, garlic and
chilli together to form a paste.
2. Add all the other spices, coriander, butter, oil and salt to the
paste and mix well.
3. Cover the chicken pieces with the masala marinade, cover
and refrigerate overnight.
4. Cover a deep tray with foil and set the grill to medium
(200°C)
5. Place the chicken wings on the base of the tray, ensuring
they are evenly spread and brush with melted butter.
6. Place under the grill and cook for 3-5 minutes until golden
brown in colour.
7. Turn each wing over, brush with melted butter and continue to
cook for a further
five minutes
8. Repeat step 7 until the meat is cooked and golden in colour.
9. Serve hot with a mint and yoghurt raita, fresh tomato and
coriander chutney, and rocket, carrot and cucumber salad.
Quick tip – the spicy marinade carries the flavour into the grilled meat,
allowing Thatchers Gold to complement the heat of the chilli. A perfect bar
snack or starter!

Feel like getting into the Oktoberfest spirit?
Here are a few of my favourite choices:
THATCHERS GOLD ENGLISH CIDER
A medium dry cider that is not overly
carbonated; a character that I love in cider.
Bursting with real fresh apples on the nose and
serving up a crisp, clean and refreshing palate.
If you haven’t had a cider before give this a
nudge, it’s a not only a great starting point into
the world of cider, it’s a great way to kick off
the warmer months.
COOPERS ARTISAN RESERVE PILSNER
Artisan Reserve Pilsner is an unpasteurised, allmalt Pilsner crafted with hop varieties including
Hallertau Tradition and Hallertau Hersbrucher
sourced from Bavaria. It’s bright, clear, golden
yellow in colour with a soft and creamy head.
First impressions are of freshly cut citrus, lime
and orange peel, followed by a crisp, clean
palate with balanced malt character.

INGREDIENTS:
Serves 4
• 800g chicken wings – skinned
and jointed to leave two pieces
per wing
• 35g garlic, peeled and chopped
• 60g ginger, peeled and chopped
• 5g green finger chillies, finely
sliced
• 10ml lemon juice
• 1 tsp salt
• 1/3 tsp red chilli powder
• ½ tsp turmeric

MATILDA BAY BEEZ NEEZ
A unique hand crafted speciality beer, brewed
with a blend of premium pale malted barley,
malted wheat and pure light amber honey.
The light malt palate with its dominating honey
aroma and flavour create a pale light golden
coloured beer, with moderate bitterness.

JAMES SQUIRES HOP THIEF
AMERICAN PALE ALE
An American style Pale Ale with a firm malt
backbone. Simcoe hops deliver a passionfruit
and slightly pine-needle like aroma, while the
addition of Columbus adds further complexity
and an earthy, spicy character.

WHITE RABBIT BELGIAN STYLE PALE ALE
As the first new beer in three years from the
White Rabbit Stables, this beer shows subtle
herbal aromas that are joined by a touch
of fruitiness once it warms. There is some
caramel sweetness to taste, with the Belgian
influence adding much in the way of spiciness
and helping create a distinctly dry finish.
