Exactly a month 'till the third Oktoberfest in Birmingham , the event organizers reveal the secrets to absolutely enjoy the event.

#1 : Let's get bier!

Oktoberfest is fundamentally about beer. On offer is the one-and-only Oktoberfest beer called Bavarian Festbeer. It is a dark golden lager with brownish hue and comes with a touch of sweetness and a strong and slightly bitter aftertaste.

The beer has travelled 742 miles from a respected brewery in
Bavaria to Birmingham in a 24-thousand-liter beer tanker.

During the whole process, the beer is always kept cool in 2°C to guarantee its freshness. Then, it is pumped into guests' glasses through a refined craft system.

#2 : Get yourself stuffed
"Oktoberfest is much more than just beer", claims Carsten Raun, festival director. A selection of typical Oktoberfest food is on offer such as Hendl (grilled chicken), Schweinebraten (roast pork), Brezel (bread), and of course, a lot of wurst (pork sausages).

Don't forget to try Bratwurst, German-specialty pork sausage, pan-roasted and served hot with slightly-pungent yellow mustard and fermented sauerkraut (cabbage). A cold beer from tap with a plate of sizzling Bratwurst would complete your Oktoberfest experience.



#3 : Dress to impress

No suit or evening gown needed, you can still impress by wearing traditional Lederhosen and Dirndl. Lederhosen, short or knee-length leather breeches, is traditionally made for Bavarian men.

Mostly considered as leisurewear nowadays, it is a perfect costume for Oktoberfest.

Dirndl, a classical-looking outfit for Bavarian women, consists of a bodice, blouse, full dress and an apron.

It is believed that the apron knot implies the woman's marital status. Make sure you send out the right signal!

#4 : The early bird gets … the best seat.**

The party tent is limited to 2500 people and tickets for the weekend are selling quickly, so if you want to attend the fabulous party, remember to book tickets as soon as possible.

Tickets are also available at the door if the event is not sold
out beforehand. Don't forget to turn up early to guarantee entry!

#5 : "Cash up"
