Promising beers, bratwurst, and brass bands, Camden’s Bavarian Winter Beer Fest is back to put a little Oompah into your Christmas. For one night only, on December 11, you can relive an Oktoberfest-style celebration, just two months after your leidenhausen’s last outing. Pick up some entry tickets here.
As the autumn leaves turn to snow (just pretend we’re actually in Bavaria for this bit, OK?), so has this Oktoberfest taken on a wintry new look, with festive snowy décor filling Camden’s Electric Ballroom. You can expect a classic Oktoberfest shindig, with its friendly atmosphere and Bavarian carousing, combined with the magic of Christmas for this beer festival comeback.
All the usual Oktoberfest trappings are here; the Bavarian Winter Beer Fest brings UK craft ales and Bavarian street food to town for a jolly old knees-up. Since the beers on offer have been produced by independent UK breweries, it’s also an excellent way to support smaller businesses who’ve seen their revenue drop as a result of the pandemic. If beer isn’t your thing, mulled wine will be on hand to provide a little winter warmth. So, grab a ticket, head down to Camden, and let’s raise a stein to Santa!
