October is here and so is Oktoberfest. It is time to put on your beer goggles and novelty hat and grab a pint or two - or three.

This year's Erdinger Oktoberfest event is taking place on October 21 and 22 at the Indian Recreation Club in Caroline Hill Road, Causeway Bay. As Erdinger celebrates its 125th anniversary this year, the brewer is bringing a wider choice of wheat beer to the festival, including the Erdinger Weiss, Dunkel and Oktoberfest brews, and also Fischer Beer.

There will be games booths and kiosks offering schweinshaxe (roasted pork knuckle), sausage platters and other traditional favourites.

Tickets are on sale through HK Ticketing and cost HK$199 with a complimentary beer upon entry. The 'Bier pass' costs HK$250 and comes with four pints. CitySeen has three pairs of tickets to give away that entitle the holder to a novelty hat, a souvenir beer mug and a welcome drink.

To win a pair, e-mail your name, phone number and address, with 'Oktoberfest' in the subject line, to by 6pm on Monday.

Winners will be drawn randomly from all valid entries.
