Bavarian beer festival Springfest comes to Camden for the first time this May.
Spring is in the air and soon, ale will be too as beer lovers are invited to clink tankards at this year's much anticipated Springfest at Electric Ballroom in Camden on Saturday 22nd May. Springfest is the Bavarian beer festival which started in Munich in 1965 and has since affectionately become known as ‘Little Oktoberfest.’ It is a welcoming celebration of all things boozy and beer-y and is coming to the centre of Camden for the very first time this May.
Right now, everyone is desperate to be swigging full steins of the finest ales while we munch on hearty Bratwurst and this one has been brewed up with something of a twist. In a break from Bavarian tradition, Springfest Camden will also showcase the finest in UK craft ales, pils and lagers as well as farmhouse ciders which will support the UK’s vibrant craft-brewing scene. Springfest have also done away with the over familiar Oompah Band and instead replaced it with a cutting-edge, street style live brass offering from No Limit Street Band and talented local DJs spinning big tunes at Club De Fromage.
Pitcher this: you, in the main beer hall with a seat at the long and traditional biergarten tables as smiley servers in authentic dress bring as many trays of beer to you as you fancy. Sound good? Well that's not all. Mouth-watering Bavarian street food from Brat Brothers will keep you fuelled with authentic Bratwurst, Weisswurst, Veganwurst, fries and all the trimmings. You can also look forward to freshly baked pretzels with sweet mustard sauce and the not so Bavarian but delicious churros with a selection of sweet sauces including peanut and chocolate and much more besides.
As the end of lockdown comes into sight, the countdown has now begun to this brilliant and boozy celebration of all things Bavarian and British. Sessions are will be socially distanced in line with government guidelines and tickets are available for groups of four, five and six people from just £15 per person from camdenspringfest.com
