Forget Dutch courage – it's time for some Bavarian bravadoThere's a lot to be thankful to the Germans for: Beethoven, Audi, great sausages. And a few things to be not so thankful for: penalty shootout results and, uh, when things got a bit tense in the '40s. But there is one thing that wipes the slate clean and stands out as their biggest achievement: German beer and, as an extension of that, Oktoberfest.
While we heaven't got the money (or holiday left) to jump on a plane to Munich, there's this option: Okto-beer-fest at The Gun's terrace marquee overlooking the Thames. With German beers, gourmet wurst and live entertainment, it's gonna be a guaranteed good time. You might be looking a bit wurst for wear afterwards though (sorry, we couldn't help ourselves).
Ticket includes entry, one gourmet wurst and two half-pints of your chosen beer. Over 18s only. Valid ID required.
