While beer-garden season may be long gone, that doesn't mean that we Brits need to give up one of our very favourite tipples. The skies may be grey, the wind may be lethal and the rain may be torrential, but if you're feeling the onset of the impending winter blues, what better way to abate them than by sipping on a nice pint (or several) of beer?
Taking place from Wednesday 3rd to Friday 5th October, The London Bierfest is a must-do for anyone fond of a pint, who has neither the funds nor the inclination to cross the channel to Munich for their 16-day celebration of beer (which includes us at The Amazing Blog). Held in the City's Old Billingsgate Market, The London Bierfest is in its tenth year and offers the perfect opportunity to network, entertain or, indeed, relax with friends and colleagues over a pint of beer.
Old Billingsgate Market will be transformed into a traditional Oktoberfest, buzzing with live music, dancing and a plethora of entertainment. Washed down with unlimited Bitburger beer and authentic German food, there's no danger of going without while at The London Bierfest. Having hosted more than 30,000 guests since its conception in 2003, both the atmosphere and entertainment is unrivalled and a night of fun and frolics is guaranteed.
No Bierfest would be complete without costumes, so fancy dress is encouraged and fun accessories can be bought from the Bierfest merchandise booth. With a whole host of hats, moustaches and wigs to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice and sure to get into the spirit of Oktoberfest.
