The booze at Oktoberfests is the best.
As for the food? You have to assume the wurst.
And thankfully, that’s a pretty safe assumption to make at Brixton’s Oktoberfest, which is taking place on the heated, covered Brixton Rooftop in – you guessed it – October. So what are they going to be packing into this brew-blowout? Well…
Sure, they’ve got huge steins of beer served to you by Lederhosen-clad waiters and waitresses from the biggest selection of craft beers south of the river. Big whoop. But what other Oktoberfests don’t have is HUGE STEINS OF PROSECCO. And cocktails.
As we mentioned, there are wursts, courtesy of sausage-slingers Herman Ze German. You’ll also find cheese-merchants Mac to the Future (their DeLorean comes with chorizo, pancetta, or spinach) and the Lambassadors who’ll happily furnish you with a marinaded lamb burrito, kebab, burger, or shoulder.
You can take in a round of Bavarian beer stein pong, indulge in a little karaoke, and more.
THE BERLIN THEMED TECHNO ROOM
There’s a Berlin-themed techno room. So if the oompah band or the DJs playing in the main area don’t do it for you, you can always retire here to listen to…
NOTE: The Brixton Oktoberfest takes place from the 12th-14th of October at the Brixton Rooftop. Tickets are just a tenner, and you can get them right HERE.
