You do know that you’ll look like a prize plum if you make it through October without so much as slamming a stein into a table, choking on a pretzel or enduring Lederhosen chafage? Plan your Oktoberfest assault immediately with these mega options: the riotous dockside knees-up going down at Hoxtoberfest (October 20-22); craft beer kings Anspach & Hobday’s street party with eight German-style beers and classic eats (Sept 30 – October 2); Oktoberfest East’s exclusive UK servings of the actual official Oktoberfest beer from Hacker-Pschorr (Sept 20 – October 9); or Bierschenke’s suds‘n’sausage fest near Liverpool Street until the end of October.
