German BeerFest 2012 Bristol (03/05/12)

Had fun yesterday with friends at the start of this five day annual event that tries to replicate the German Octoberfest in Bristol. The beer was nice – two varieties in litre glasses, the Erdinger wheat beer (a nice, flowery and fruity taste) and a Filscher Pilsner (a strong refreshing taste). Preferred the Erdinger variety. Have a hangover today so I’m keeping this post quite brief. Staff were dressed in German dirndel outfits and there was a band playing loud non-German music – such music didn’t really make sense (my moan of the day).  The organiser went round to tables explaining that they weren’t planning on holding this event this year on the Thursday, so last minute planning in terms of licensing meant that no German sausages were on offer for that day – shame. Instead, they had a crepe stand making sweet/savoury crepes – not quite the same but the beer was nice enough.

The tour follows on to Southampton, Reading and Cardiff. For information follow this link http://www.beerfestuk.com/locations.html

  1. I have done some personal damage with Erdinger in the past. The beer is so yeast filled, it gives me dandruff for a week after I drink it. That is if I drink a few pints of it. The ‘few’ is an understatement, naturally enough.
    Best,
