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 9th year, our Octoberfest is a small, but good event.
