On Friday, October 16th, our retail location The Craft Beer Shop will be hosting a tasting event and German food Oktoberfest Party! Beers from our shop will also be on sale, and we will be grilling up some sausages. You may even be served by a genuine Bavarian beer boy or girl! RSVP on Facebook here.

Come by to taste some of our beers from this year's Oktoberfest case, described below. If you can't make it to Billericay, don't be sad! The Oktoberfest cases are now at a special price, both online and at the craft beer shop. Order it here.


Brooklyn Oktoberfest -
Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, full-bodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness.

Erdinger Oktoberfest -
Erdinger’s wheat beer offering for the traditional Oktoberfest period is slightly stronger than the normal Weiss yet it still retains a clean, soft flavour but with perhaps more subtle spiciness and fruit.

Hofbrau Oktoberfest -
A rich, full-bodied beer with a deliciously bitter taste. Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier is a bottom-fermented, light festive beer.

Spaten Oktoberfestbier -
Aromatic, savoury, and amber in colour, this medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavour with the perfect amount of hops.

Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier -
This Märzen is amber-hued with a full malt aroma and has the perfect balance of light hops and strong malt notes.

Hacker Pschorr Oktoberfest Marzen -
Brewed from natural spring water, dark and light coloured malt from two-row Bavarian summer barley, a traditional Hacker-Pschorr centuries-old exclusive yeast strain and Noble Hallertau hops. This beer is amber in colour, rich, has clean toasted malt flavours and a sweet hop aroma.
