Beer Festival

Behind the Pint: Martin Wies

The Marco Polo German Bierfest, which celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016, is always a highlight on the party calendar and something we look forward to as the weather turns cooler. Martin Wies, the co-founder of Germany’s ultra-fun Die Notenhobler (The Notenhobler), which has been the festival’s official band since 1994, chats with us about the rise of Oktoberfest in Hong Kong.
