Paulaner Bräuhaus Singapore is a brewery and restaurant that has been at Millenia Walk ever since the mall opened. Oktoberfest is celebrated in Germany in September every year, but the 2020 Munich Oktoberfest has been cancelled because of COVID. In Singapore, the 2020 Paulaner Brauhaus Oktoberfest presses on from 12 Sep to 25 October 2020.
We were amazed to see the Paulaner Bräuhaus Singapore Oktoberfest beer “tent”. It looks close to what we had seen during our Munich visit a couple of years ago. The major difference is the lack of the loud music from the brass bands. I guess this is because of the prevailing restrictions on live bands and loud music (see ST report : F&B outlets must play recorded music quietly). The soft music doesn’t really suit the wonderful look of the place, but it is the next best thing in the circumstances.
As you can see from the photos, Oktoberfest in Singapore at Paulaner Bräuhaus seems like a popular event. We did not think it would be so packed, especially when it was such a rainy day. Of course the safe distancing measures kept the tables apart and reduced capacity. Still, it seems that the love of beer and pork knuckles is stronger than the dread of rain. There was no seat in the best part of the restaurant on level 2 (picture above) or even the Bar at level 1. We made do with an outdoor table.

2020 Oktoberfest Menu
In addition to the regular menu, there are is a 2020 Oktoberfest promotion menu for the event. German food traditional served in the beer tents such as sausages, roast duck and pork knuckles are available. Some items are available with a free flow of beers. Leave your car at home is my advice, as the beers are addictive.
Here are pictures of the beer menu and some pages from the regular Paulaner Bräuhaus menu. There is an on-going one-for-one beer deal as well for those who are not inclined to go “free-flow”.
Beer, Pretzel, Roast Pork and Salmon
We had a couple of glasses of the lager beer. It was fresh and fruity. German beer is probably the best in the world. Even better when consumed with pretzels ($3.90 each) in the atmosphere of a beer hall.
As for food we had a roast pork served with bread dumpling ($29, picture above) and a baked salmon fillet ($29.90, picture below) from the regular menu. Both dishes tasted fine. Both the pork and fish were very well cooked, resulting in dry textures. But they provided good excuses to visit Paulaner Bräuhaus Singapore 2020 Oktoberfest for lunch.
