Review: Oktoberfest


Oktoberfest never fails to meet my high expectations of it.  Held at Kinkell Byre, Oktoberfest is a St. Andrews event that is truly unique and brings an authentic experience to St. Andrews, complete with an amusement park ride and 4,100 litres of Paulaner beer. (Yep, that many!)

Dressed in the traditional lederhosen and dirndl (this year I even saw some people wearing a suit, tie, wellies and Barbours with their lederhosen in true St. Andrews fashion) everyone was looking forward to having a great time.

The beer was efficiently sold with a token system, I never had to wait in long lines and each token was worth two steins of beer for 5 pounds.  The steins were smaller this year  which  resulted in less of a mess, as they were easier to carry around for the whole event.  Guests sat at the tables for only a short time, as the band was excellent and really set the Bavarian theme and everyone was keen to start dancing.  After grabbing a few steins everyone was  on the dancefloor by 3pm and the time flew by.


 The food was  exquisite, definitely a highlight of the day for me!  There was a large selection of traditional food, ranging from sausages to pretzels to new additions like the delicious shnitzelburger.  This year, we were blessed with sunny weather, honestly the best when you’re only wearing a short dress, or an even shorter lederhosen! (shout-out to the guy in the hot-pant, yellow version!)

What’s so special about  Oktoberfest is that it draws in so many people from outside St. Andrews,giving the event a more diverse feel that helps everyone to break out of the bubble blues.  The only problem is that since it was such a large event, it was easy to lose track of friends. Overall it was a really enjoyable day even though I did lose my coat, again.  Thank you to the Oktoberfest committee team for another successful year. Prost!

  23. of course like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll surely come back again.|

  26. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!|

  27. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!|

  28. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!|

  29. I’ve been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet can be much more useful than ever before.|

  30. What you posted made a ton of sense. But, consider this, suppose you added a little information? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good, but suppose you added something to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean BLOG_TITLE is kinda boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write post headlines to grab people to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.|

  31. I believe this is one of the so much significant info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But wanna commentary on few basic issues, The web site style is wonderful, the articles is truly nice : D. Just right job, cheers|

  32. I do not even know how I stopped up here, however I believed this publish was great. I don’t understand who you’re but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!|
