While not everyone can find time in their busy schedule to make it over to Germany for Oktoberfest, those in London from October 5-7, 2011, can still experience the spirit of the festival. London will host their annual Bierfest at Old Billingsgate Market, which will be transformed into an authentic-style Oktoberfest celebration with traditional German food, unlimited steins of beer, live music, and servers dressed in costume.
Bitburger will be the official beer supplier for the event, featuring brews such as:
- Bitgburger Premium Beer, a hoppy beer with a dry-finish that is made in accordance with Germany purity law.
- Bitburger Drive, an alcohol free, fully-fermented, low calorie beer option.
- Licher-Weizen (Light Wheat Beer), a refreshing beer brewed out of wheat and “blessed by the sun”
- Kostritzer Schwarzbier (Black Beer), a barley malt with a mild-hop flavor.
As for food fare, expect options like Bavarian spiced chicken, cold meat & cheese platters, salted pretzels, mini Gherkins, BBQ ribs, and more.
