The world famous festival, the Oktoberfest runs for sixteen days, beginning in late September and running through the first weekend in October. Over six million people descend upon the Bavarian town of Munich, consuming huge quantities of locally brewed beer out of a hefty liter Stein. All the beer for the festival comes exclusively from six breweries within Munich and brewed to a higher alcohol content from that of a standard Marzen having at least 6%.
The Oktoberfest has a huge following throughout the rest of the world, giving rise to many Oktoberfest inspired beers and the creation of festivals at which to drink them. Our Beltramo’s Beer Tasting will be giving you the opportunity to try some traditional German Oktoberfest beers alongside some excellent interpretations from the U.S.
Try all eight of these great Oktoberfest beers for $5 on Friday 5th October from 4:30-6:30.
