Bury St Edmunds based brewing giant Greene King is holding its first ever Oktoberfest this weekend, complete with a one-night rugby experience.

The pub company is hosting the three-day event from October 2 to 4 at its on-site pub, the Brewery Tap.

It is timed to coincide with UK Cask Ale Week and with the final weekend of Oktoberfest in Munich, the world’s largest annual beer festival.

A special addition to the festival programme is a set of inflatable rugby posts, created by the Greene King IPA team, to give fans a chance to be part of the Rugby World Cup action and emulate a winning try.

The posts have travelled to pubs and rugby clubs across England, and will be at Greene King Oktoberfest on Friday from 6pm to 8.30pm.

It is free to have a go, so all local rugby fans are invited to come along to the festival’s opening night and join in.

Anyone who shares their photos using the hashtag #TRYGreeneKingIPA could even find themselves on the Greene King Brewery Facebook page as the ‘player of the match’.

The Oktoberfest will offer a mix of leading, craft and speciality beers from the brewer’s Westgate and Belhaven breweries alongside real ales from other local and microbreweries. A special Greene King Oktober Festival Ale will also be available for the weekend only.

The festival starts at 6pm on Friday. The Brewery Tap doors open again from midday to 11pm on Saturday and from midday to 5pm on Sunday.
