DIG OUT YOUR LEDERHOSEN, IT’S A WÜNDERBAR TIME OF YEAR! From Munich with love, this celebration of German heritage translates across the globe with Albert’s Schloss at the helm in Birmingham for the second year running.
Commencing Saturday 16th September at 5pm. Keeping to the tradition of a star tapping the first keg, Schloss welcomes Heart West Midlands radio stars, Ed James & Gemma Hill to do the honours. Albert’s Schloss have shined off the steins ready for the debut keg to burst its buckles with the force of Ed and Gemma and the sound of Albert’s Oompah band followed by the usual Albert’s Schloss debauchery.
The spektakulär Oktoberfest guest selection starts with ‘Spaten Oktoberfest’, traditionally the first bier barrel tapped in Germany, opened by the Mayor of Munich every year. Hofbräu Oktoberfest; this one packs a punch at 6.3% and is the strongest of Albert’s Oktoberfest biers. The refreshing yet characteristic ‘Lowenbrau Volbier’ 5.2%, and ‘Hacker-Pschorr’ 5.8% or ‘Bavarian Heaven’, the unique taste created by the variety of Bavarian barleys. Paulaner Munich Helles, Erdinger Weissbrau and the newly launched Hofbrau Session Helles will also be available throughout the festivities.
Oktoberfest weekend two kicks off on Friday 22nd September at 4:45pm with the Apres-Work Keg Tapping party. The perfect end to a long week at work with a fresh selection from the next set of kegs to burst open, early Friday Frolich showtime from the Albert’s Brass Band, the infamous Haus Band and DJ sets alongside bier tasting, wiener samples and more. Every Monday – Friday from 4 ‘til 7pm enjoy pints of Pilsner + Hofbrau Helles for five English pounds, £6 cocktails and £25 bottles of Prosecco, with early showtime performances from 4:45pm every Tuesday – Friday. Prost!
To keep the stamina up and spirits high, dive from your steins into the Cook Haus hero dish, perfect for sharing between 2-4 people; the Bavarian Sharing Feast. A Smörgåsbord of Roast pork knuckle, chicken schnitzel, bratwurst, kaiserwurst, honey roast pork belly, sformato, braised red cabbage, seasonal greens, bier jus, rainbow sauerkraut, and pickles.
