Cambridge Beer Festival
Cambridge’s very own Oktoberfest has been running since 1974, and it aims to stock all the same beers the Munich version has and more. Local breweries and producers are also represented at this outdoors event; over 200 British beers are on offer. In addition to national and foreign beers, the festival has ciders, wines, perry and for the peckish, a selection of cheese, hams, pork pies and foods designed to soak up the alcohol. The truly hungry can even savour a hog roast, and vegetarians are also catered for. The event is staffed by volunteers, and a portion of the profits go towards several charities, among them the East Anglian Air Ambulance and blind and visually impaired charity Cam Sight.
