Welcome, to the 8th Cambridge Octoberfest, Cambridge & District CAMRA's youngest Beer Festival.

We are very proud of our festival, we put a lot of time and effort into making it the best we can.

Well that is the festival over for this year, a big thank you to you all for attending the festival and for making it such a great success. We hope that you enjoyed yourself, and you found something new and to your liking, from the range of British Real Ale and German Beer.

A big thank you to our loyal and poor unpaid hard working volunteers for helping to run this and previous festivals, helping make the festivals a great success.

We look forward to seeing you all, visitors and volunteers, again at our next event, the Cambridge & District CAMRA 19th Cambridge Winter Ale Festival on Thursday the 22nd to Saturday the 24th January 2015 at the University Social Club.

About the festival

The Cambridge Octoberfest was first held in 2007. This festival is the branch's smallest and its youngest beer festival. Everyone has heard of the Oktoberfest in Munich (Munchen), and regard it as a big beer festival. Whilst it is a large beer festival, there are only 6 breweries that are allowed to participate. These are the 6 breweries of Munich and consist of Augustinerbräu, Hacker-Pschorr Bräu, Hofbräu, Löwenbräu, Paulanerbräu and Spatenbräu. The event itself is a celebration of Munich life, but being Bavarians a lot of beer is consumed !

We have created an event that emulates the Munich Beer Festival, but in a much, much smaller scale. Now in its 8th year, our Octoberfest is a small, but good event.
