Belfast Oktoberfest: Two weekends left to join the celebration of beer, food and music at King's Hall

By Valerie Edwards

Time is running out to participate in this year's Oktoberfest as there are only two weekends left. Oktoberfest will continue this weekend October 9-10 and October 16-17.

The Merry Monk Taverns, a German bar which trades at different shows across the UK, brought back Oktoberfest after selling out last year at King's Hall.

For the past two weekends, people have enjoyed a full range of beers including Paulaner Oktoberfest Lager, which is only brewed for the Munich Beer Festival.

Last week Oktoberfest recorded 10,000 people to have attended so far.

During the festivities on Fridays and Saturdays, food and beer is served by friendly staff in traditional Bavarian costumes and as is the tradition in Bavaria, beer is served in steins - 1 litre glasses.

Oktoberfest offers the full German experience with quality beer, music, food and Heidi girls. It's set to be a great way to soak up the atmosphere of the great Munich festival without having to fly more than 1,000 miles.

The Munich Oktoberfest has been running since 1810 and now hosts 6 million people annually, who come together to celebrate everything German.

Doors open at 5pm - midnight on Fridays and Saturdays at King's Hall and entry is £3.50.
