This year’s BreyerFest has been inspired by all things German – from music and food to art, literature, culture, and of course all the wonderful horses. We have thus far explored Germany’s incredible folklore, fairytales, traditional clothing, festivals, and their famous Christmas markets – and yesterday, we released a big announcement about BreyerFest tickets.
For this year’s Event Stablemates models we’ve been inspired by the large variety of food, treats, and drinks Germany has to offer! Hope you’re not hungry because these guys are simply delicious! Meet Lakritz, Spaetzle, Doppelbock, and Brezel!
Doppelbock(mold 5705B) has been named for the popular German draft beer. Originally brewed by the 17th century Paulaner Friars in Munich, this copper- to dark brown-colored beer is often referred to as ‘liquid bread’ for its satiating qualities. Heavy beers like this were traditionally brewed during times of fasting to sustain the monks. Done on the Clydesdale Stallion with a loose mane, originally sculpted in Traditional Scale by Chris Hess, Doppelbock has been painted beautifully as a shaded dapple bay.
This is a pre-sale. BreyerFest will be held July 15-17, 2022. Models will be shipped by the end of July or first part of August, or as soon as we receive them from Breyer. Since 2022 will be the first event held both on line and in person some models will be picked up at the event while others will be shipped. We will get them out just as quickly as we can. All single run models will be picked up during BF.
