Official Oktoberfest celebrations may not be taking place in Munich this year. But here in Manchester, Albert’s Schloss is determined to keep the festivities going.

Starting this week until Monday 5th October, the bier palace will be serving five Oktoberfest beers – as well as Manchester’s biggest bratwurst, coming in at a whopping 20 inches. 

Not to be shared, the giant bratwurst demands solo attention, they say – the ultimate challenge for any sausage lover.

And for those looking to embrace Oktoberfest fashion, Albert’s Schloss will be offering a free pint to anyone dressed in Lederhosen.

All the Oktoberfest beers are £6 each, and available for the duration of the festival. 

There’s Paulaner Oktoberfest, 6%: the perfect balance of a light taste of hops and a strong note of malt. A feast of a beer, which always goes down well.

Hofbrau Oktoberfest, 6.3%, is a full-bodied, bottom-fermented specialty beer with a fine hoppy aroma and delicate notes of fruit creating a beautiful lager.

Spaten Oktoberfest, 5.9%, is a medium bodied beer balancing the roasted malt flavour with the perfect amount of hops – expect a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

Hacker Pschorr, 5.8%, is gloriously smooth and honey-coloured with toasted caramel, dark fruit, bread and plum notes.

And finally there’s Lowenbrau, 6.1%: sweet malts on the nose with notes of caramel and grain complete the aroma. This medium bodied beer has a malt taste with a hint of hop bitterness as well as mild spice flavours. 

To kick off the Oktoberfest party season, Albert’s Schloss will host a night of fun and frolics on Thursday 10th September, seeing the official return of entertainment and the beloved promenders.

In keeping with government guidelines, Albert’s Schloss has ensured that all necessary precautions have been taken to keep this a socially distant and responsible event.

Albert’s Schloss will celebrate Oktoberfest from 7th September to 5th October 2020.
