Fri, 6th Oct 2017 to Sun, 8th Oct 2017

The first Shropshire Oktoberfest is coming to Shrewsbury in 2017 from the team behind Shrewsbury Food Festival, Shropshire Kids Festival, Shrewsbury Winter Festival and Telfood.

There will be over 150 Real Ales served by awesome brewers from across SIBA Wales and West region. Staff that know all about beer and will be able to help you choose the perfect pint! If real ale isn’t your thing then try the Wye Valley Lager Bar, which will be serving up local lager from across the region - you'll find NO national brands at this festival!

It's harvest time and you fancy some apple or pear juice, there will be cider and perry in its finest form and you'll definitely be able to get one or two of your five a day sampling the delights of the producers who have booked in to take part in the festival. From Applesecco to real Herefordshire perry there will be something for all taste buds.

If you're less of a pint person and more of a spirit connoisseur then you will find heaven in the prosecco parlor, relax in the gin den or even enjoy a mixology class or two.

Education is also paramount at this event so there will be tasting workshops within the Hop Experience zone where you'll be taught what malts make beer taste good, what hops give flavour and what foods to enjoy with what drinks.

Kick back and relax while you enjoy a pint of the finest, pull up a pew in the comedy club where some of the funniest people on the comedy circuit will be performing.

Music is a must at any good beer festival and Oktoberfest won't let you down. From Ompah bands to the best of Shropshire Talent, there will be plenty of local music. The full lineup is being put together so check or social media for regular updates!

Driving? Well someone has to draw the short straw….We will give you a FREE bottle of water kindly donated by Wenlock Spring. Remember we are a 5 minute walk to the train station so why not come early and make a day of it?

The Quarry is Shrewsbury's beautiful, 29-acre parkland, encircled by the majestic loop of the river Severn. The Quarry has been Shrewsbury's most important site for recreation since the 16th Century.
