Oktoberfest 2017



For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to visit Oktoberfest in Munich. The initial desire to attend the festival was probably founded in no so good motives but as I grew up and developed a passion for home brewing, i’ve really appreciated a good lager, especially one that come from Germany. 

When my wife suggested we should go, I quickly booked the flights and hotel so there was no chance to back out as I was slightly worried she might not like the idea of going in the end. However, from the moment we arrived we both had an incredible time. Once full of many beers, lots of incredible food and an incredible experience. 


There are 12 lager tents to chose from. Each of the tents serve different beer & food so make sure you search around to find a tent that’s fitting for the type of day/ evening your planning to have. 

It might be really helpful to use the official app from Oktoberfest to plan your trip and it will highlight some of the events that are taking place but they also have a live indicator to show how full the tents are. This could be really helpful in the evening and busying days. 

Beer & Food

With 12 tents and many other serving beer, you should be able to find something that meets your requirements assuming you’re not looking for a super hoppy IPA or an imperial stout. There’s lots of incredible lager here. 

Every tent serves a variety of food all of which looks amazing, however we never ate at the festival as we didn’t want to pay the over high price tags. So, we found another beer hall around the corner that severed some amazing beer and food too, for a little under the asking price in the festival. So, when it comes to food, reserve a table somewhere and it you’d prefer to stay at Oktoberfest, make sure you take plenty of cash.  

Here’s a little video of our time and we hope you enjoy it. If you ever get a chance to go you must!
