Better beer-lieve it! Lincoln to host Oktoberfest in the Cornhill

To drink or not to drink, the question asked by Shakesbeer, can be answered when Lincoln hosts its own Oktoberfest style beer festival next month.

The spirit of the famous German festival, which was first held in Munich in 1810, will be heading to Lincoln’s Cornhill between October 3-7 from 9am to 10pm (Sunday 10am-7pm) and entry is free.

Cure any drinking ale-ments at the event where European beer, sweet fruit beers, Polish food and other culinary delights, as well as live music will be found.
