Mayo’s Mescan Brewery is bringing Oktoberfest to the West this October, at a special one day event taking place in Gracy’s Bar, Westport House on Saturday 5th October.
This is the fourth incarnation of the popular festival which combines craft beer, music and food in an ideal setting. It’s a confident declaration by the artisan brewing company, particularly in the face of both Dublin and Cork cancelling their Oktoberfest events.
Mescan is teaming up with local chefs to bring festival goers the best bratwurst outside Germany to complement their specially brewed Oktoberfest beer. In the best Oktoberfest, tradition the beer is served in an array of steins in all shapes and sizes. Mescan plans to keep the dancing going all day long with a great mix of live bands and leading European Oktoberfest DJs, Johan und Paul, flown in specially for the event.
The venue is easily accessed on foot from Westport Town, and drivers will be happy to know there’s free parking onsite. Gracy’s Bar is a bar and pizza restaurant in converted farm buildings on the Westport House estate.
Oktoberfest West is part of the Fáilte Ireland Taste the Island campaign. Full details will be posted on Facebook leading up to the event. No tickets are required and entry is free. Dirndls and lederhosen are optional.
