6th Cambridge Octoberfest Beer List

Please note :-
That all the beers ordered are subject to availability and therefore may not be at the festival.
We aim to have the vast majority of these beers available at all the sessions.
However, the nature of real ale means that some beer will not be ready at the start of the festival, and the nature of our thirsty customers means that not all beers will be available at the end of the festival.
The Cambridge Octoberfest is a small festival and thus it is unlikely that the status information will be updated once we have taken delivery of the beers.
