Beer lovers, you don’t have to travel to Bavaria to celebrate the world’s largest celebration of beer! Pair your favourite beer with a proper Dartington pint glass or tankard and bring Oktoberfest to you. We have selected five beer glasses we think you will love.
What is Oktoberfest?
Did you know that Oktoberfest dates back over 200 years? It began as a wedding celebration in 1810 when Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen – any excuse for a party! While the main event takes place in Munich, Germany, where the original six local breweries still provide the beer, celebrations can be found all over the world. Expect Bavarian music, steins of beer and traditional lederhosen.
