I've been a number of times over the past years.
However the last couple of years I went the people and culture it was attracting has turned me off it.
I was hoping to get along to the Oktoberfest that is held at St.Ives showground. I missed it last year, but have not been able to find out any details on it for this year.
Anyone know any details ?

Beers,
Doc

Hey Doc what's the selection of beer like at this one? The usual commercial influx to attract the swillers or does it have something a little bit different?

They used to have a good selection of German and Austrian beer but it has wavered a little in the last few years.
Steins (although now 500ml and plastic) are generally fulled with DAB.
You have also been able to get a few others from the stalls like Goesser as well as schnapps etc.
Didn't go last year so not sure what the selection was like.

Beers,
Doc

The food is what always wins me over at most German restaurants. Big pork knuckles, sauerkraut, katoffelpoofers (sp?).
mmmmmmmm

Doc,
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy it.
Just curious what this culture was that you were referring too.
Would have thought the beer too pricey for the yobs.
I understand why they do it, but I hate drinking from plastic.
Wonder if any AHB members could be spied retrieving the 500ml empties from the recycling bins?

Roach,
That's a poor specimen of a barmaid. Shouldn't the counterweights be on the back so that more jugs could be carried at the front? :)

Regards,
Pete
