Stewart Brewing, the leading Scottish craft brewers will be holding their first Oktobeerfest in September. The Traditional German festival has been rapidly growing in popularity over recent years with many places in the UK holding their own beer festival in a similar style to celebrate.
Stewart Brewing have decided to hold their Oktobeerfest after their Edinburgh Beer Festival was such a success. The Festival in Edinburgh was held in May, and now the popular craft beer company will be hosting a two day beer festival in September in order to coincide with the popular German beer celebrations. As part of their event, Stewart Brewing will offer a selection of their old favourites as well as limited edition Bavarian style beers and a number of award winning beers including Radical Road, Jack Back, Hollywood and Ka Pai.
The Oktobeerfest will also have a range of street food on offer and already confirmed for the event is the popular street food vendor Well Hung & Tender. For entertainment, there will be live music from bands like The Citizen who proved a hit at the Edinburgh Beer Festival held by the brewing company, and the Stadtkapelle Lochgelly oompah band who will be entertaining the festival goers with their performances of the classic hits with a German-style twist.
The Oktobeerfest will be held over the course of two days. An adults only event will be held on Friday the 15th September from 6pm until 10pm, and the festival will be tailored towards families on Saturday the 16th of September from 12pm until 8pm.Entrance to the event will be £16 per person, with a souvenir glass and a can of beer.
