The Event

On September 21st, we’ll once again be hosting Lewes’ very own Oktoberfest in the Corn Exchange. We’ll be transforming the hall with our own Bavarian theme and we'll be laying on great food, beer and music. The last 2 years have been a massive hit and this year is lining up to be even better.

What about beers? We’re lucky to have a wealth of local breweries who each produce their own German style beers - Abyss, Beak, Only With Love, Burning Sky and Harveys. See our list of beers below. There’ll also be Gluwein and Schnapps on offer if you’re looking for something other than beer.

Of course, we’ll have a good selection of German food to compliment the beers. Plenty of different sausages, including veggie and curry wurst – not to be missed. If you fancy something lighter, there’ll be various snacks available throughout the evening.


Earlybird tickets are now on sale at a fantastic reduced rate of £10 (plus handling fee)

This is a limited time offer which ends at midnight on 03/08/2024

Tickets will then move to the upper tier price of £15

Tickets are limited for the event and as such it's very unlikely that any will be left for door entry on the day. Get in early to avoid disappointment

Once again we're using Jumblebee to sell our tickets online. Click on the link below to visit the Jumblebee ticket site


We'll of course be having an Oompah band for the event. More details to follow....


Keeping with the local theme, we've once again teamed up with Richards butchers who will be making one off German sausages for the Fest.

Plenty of excellent options will be available including vegan and gluten free. All served with lovely bread, Sauerkraut and relishes

In addition to sausages, we'll have plenty of snacks throughout the day including fabulous pretzels. Perfect to wash down with some of our lovely beer.


Once again we've kept it close to home when selecting our beers for the event. There's so much brewing talent within a 5 mile radius of Lewes that it would be rude not to! Keep it local!

Our lovely beers from 2023

We'll be keeping some of these for 2024 and will add new beers as and when we decide on which ones we're going to have

Brewer Beer Details
Abyss Gonzo GONZO is everything we love about Pilsner-crisp clean malt and a traditional Germanic hop flavour using Hallertau Mittelfruh and Perle hops. We’ve combined floral, herbal and spice aromas with a subtle bitterness that leaves you wanting more. Wherever you’re headed-GONZO is your new favourite drinking buddy. ABV 4.6%
Abyss Festbier Abyss brewery are producing a special beer for the Oktoberfest season and we're lucky enough to be able to get hold of some for our event. Watch this space for more details.
Only With Love Helles Lager Our go-to lager for max gluggability and refreshment. A little bit of maltiness, a tang of classic German hoppy bitterness, a lovely rounded body and subtle fruits and spice all combine to make sure it hits the spot year-round. ABV 4%
Beak Dest This unfiltered, naturally carbonated lager is brewed with German Pilsner malt along with Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefrüh hops before being cold conditioned for 30 days. Crisp, clean and frizzing with classic noble hop character. ABV 5%
Burning Sky Luppoleto Pils Brewed with Pilsner malt and noble German hop varieties, fermented cold then dry hopped and lagered for an extended period. Flavours of cereal malt combined with citrus and grassy hop aromas, Crisp Finish. ABV 5.2%
Harveys Pilsner Prussian A balanced, refreshing and distinctly moreish beer that showcases continental hops alongside local brewing innovation. Central to the inception of Harvey's Pilsner was the desire to fuse the Brewery's use of quality local ingredients, as well as the Lubelski hop and European malt to create a beer which accommodates the tastes of a range of drinkers. ABV 4%

As well as beer, we'll once again have a great selection of Schnapps and a good supply of warming Gluhwein
