Oktoberfest 2023 in Birmingham: Eight restaurants, bars & pubs celebrating the German beer festival

Here are eight places to enjoy Oktoberfest in Birmingham

It’s time to take your dusty lederhosen out of the bag because Oktoberfest is returning to Birmingham. With amazing German street food, oompah bands and lively performances, Birmingham’s hospitality venues are getting ready to welcome customers for an ale out party.

From The Old Crown in Digbeth to Heidi’s Bier Bar on Broad Street, the party hubs have planned several days of entertainment - including fancy dress and bratwurst eating competitions.

Everyone is encouraged to dress up for this German beer festival, which goes back to 1810. It was supposed to be a one time party in celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, later became King Louis I, to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. However, it turned into an annual party in Munich, Bavaria and it has grown to be a global phenomenon.
