Watch as we find out about Liverpool’s biggest authentic Oktoberfest, coming this Autumn

12/07/2022

Dig out your dirndls and dust down your lederhosen – because the biggest authentic Oktoberfest in the North West is coming to Liverpool.

Black Beetle Drinks & the Handyman bar are bringing the fabulous festival to the city for a massive outdoor event in Sefton Park.

So it’s time to raise a stein to a fantastic five days of fun, focused on bier, bratwurst and the best Oompah band around.

“We just know that everyone is guaranteed a great time,” says Darren Gilligan, Black Beetle drinks MD and founder, “because there’s always a fantastic, party atmosphere at these events.

“Oktoberfest has really caught on over the last couple of years in the UK and it just keeps getting better and better.

“It’s something to really look forward to, and we have made sure that, at this one in Liverpool, there is something for everyone – so you can get your mates down, you can get your family down, and you can experience an authentic Bavarian party.”

Oktoberfest will be running from Wednesday, September 28 to Sunday, October 2, at the cricket playing fields in Sefton Park.

There’ll be two festival sessions each day from 12.30pm to 5pm, and 6pm to 10.30pm, so there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy everything that’s going on, in and around the big top.

The Bavarian food village will be serving traditional German food from sauerkraut to Bratwurst, and mouthwatering roasted meats, to delicious dumplings and the perfect pretzels.

There’ll be entertainment from The Amazing Bavarian Stompers – the first British comedy Bavarian oompah band booked for a major German bier festival – as well as all the fun of a fairground, and more.

And, of course, there’ll be beer – (or bier!).

Black Beetle Drinks has teamed up with top German brewer Maxlrainer to present the event and make sure it has that authentic Bavarian look and feel. Located about 50km outside Munich, it’s one of only 12 breweries to have been awarded the title of Germany’s Brewer of the Year twice.

“German bier is the purest beer in the world,” says Darren. “It’s been brewed since the 1600s and the German government have a purity rule with four ingredients, hops, malt, water and yeast! You don’t feel bloated, and you don’t feel full of additives that are in normal bier, it’s the best bier in the world.

Which probably means you can sample a few, which is just as well with four varieties on offer: Helles, Zwickl Max, Schwarzbier, and Kirtabier – brewed only for Oktoberfest – on the menu.

Darren and Kevin are planning special days too – one for services on Wednesday, September 28; a student special on Thursday, and a special family event on Sunday.

And, if you don’t want to miss out, you can get booking your space now. Tickets are on sale from June 9 and there’s a limited Early Bird booking offer for Oktoberfest Sefton Park, including VIP tables to make the most of your Oktoberfest experience.
