An East Yorkshire brewery is hosting its first German beer festival with a flavour of the Wolds.
The Oktoberfest will take place at Wold Top Brewery, based in the village of Wold Newton nine miles northwest of Bridlington. Visitors can expect a specially brewed Oktoberfest beer, German food with a Yorkshire twist, and an Oompah Band.
Beer-lovers are also welcome to dress up as a beer maid or perhaps don some lederhosen. The festival, on Saturday, October 1, follows the sell-out success of a Big Sky Beer Festival last month.
Susie Freeman, of Wold Top’s events team, explained why they are excited for Oktoberfest. She said: “We’ve got such a great space in the brewery bar and brew shed and we’re always thinking about engaging events to put on.
“We had such good feedback from the Big Sky Beer Festival in July and our brewers were excited to brew something new and different, so a German beer festival with a Yorkshire twist is what we’ve come up with. Fancy dress is optional.”
Tickets for the event, which runs from 3pm to 11pm on Saturday, October 1, cost £15 per person and include a pint or a soft drink.
Basic, but scenic, camping, caravan and motorhome pitches are available for £12 per pitch. You can book online at the Wold Top website or by calling 01723 892222.
Wold Top, near Bridlington, was founded in 2003 and uses home-grown barley from the Mellor family farm at nearby Hunmanby Grange. The family has farmed 600 acres high on the Yorkshire Wolds for generations and the Wold Top brewing process also uses water drawn from the farm’s borehole to produce a range of award-winning cask, keg and bottled beers that are available throughout Yorkshire and nationwide.
