RedDot Brewhouse
Head to RedDot’s Boat Quay outlet from now till October 2 to enjoy their version of Oktoberfestbier along with a special Oktoberfest menu. There’ll also be Bavarian music and speed drinking contests on Fridays and Saturdays and if you show up in traditional German garb on those days after 6pm, you’ll get a free pint of beer to help put you in the Oktoberfest mood.

Magma German Wine Bistro + Shop
Offering the most authentic Oktoberfest cuisine in Singapore and wine in addition to beer (Oktoberfest revelers in Germany drink 125,000 liters of wine apparently), the normally tranquil Magma German Wine Bistro + Shop celebrates Oktoberfest through October 3.

Paulaner Brauhaus
With 6,000 liters of fresh Oktoberfestbier, classic Oktoberfest food and live music, Paulaner Brauhaus is a must-visit from September 30 to October 7 as they celebrate their 12th Oktoberfest in Singapore. Buy coupons for your pints before September 29 and you’ll get them for $16 nett and not $16.90++.

Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant
From October 3-9 at all Brotzeit outlets in Singapore, you’ll be able to knock back glasses of Paulaner Oktoberfestbier ($14.90 for a pint, $27.50 for a liter and $39.50 for a special liter can with a free mug) and tuck into a monumental Oktoberfest Platter ($168) which includes Bierbeisser sausages, garlic pork sandwiches, pork knuckle, pork chops, pork ribs along with sides of sauerkraut and wedges. If you’re at Brotzeit’s VivoCity outlet from October 6-9, you’ll also have authentic German entertainment in the form of the band AnTon and the Funny Guys.

Bar on 5
For one night only on October 5, Bar on 5 will celebrate Oktoberfest with free flow of Erdinger, pork knuckle, sausages and potato from 7-9pm for $30++ per person.

Clarke Quay
Held at Central Fountain Square, the celebration brings Erdinger promotions (these go on all month long), German food kiosks, waitresses in Dirndl, games like Ice Beer Smash and beer drinking competitions to Clarke Quay from October 7-8. There’ll also be live music from Highlander’s resident band DeJavu, and all sorts of German food from the traditional crispy pork knuckle and braised beef in vinegar, to the more contemporary chicken tikka currywurst and marsala fried chicken schnitzel. Admission is free.

Timbre @ The Substation
After a spirited debut in 2010, Timbre’s Singaporean take on Oktoberfest, Roktober!, is back from October 20-23 at the carpark of their Substation outlet. It’s a Timbre event so there’ll be live music, of course (The Marilyns, Cheating Sons, Pleasantry, Goodfellas, 53A, Raw Earth, Mel & Joe, to name a few), an Oktoberfest buffet (from $42.50), live screenings of the Rugby World Cup 2011, a beer pong championship and an eating contest. Heineken and Erdinger ($9 a cup) will also be flowing.
