Good Beer, Hearty Food, Great Craic
2020 is our 20th anniversary edition of Octoberfest! Over the last 2 decades, Octoberfest has grown from humble beginnings as a modest beer festival to become a firmly established part of the annual calendar here at Clachaig Inn. The festival has grown to be a celebration of much more than just good drink, though the basic principles of good beer, hearty food and great craic remain at the heart of Octoberfest.
With 15 cask ale lines and 8 craft beer lines the choice of ales, stouts, lagers and ciders promises to deliver something for everyone and every taste. We’ll have a few old favourites, but we’ll also be featuring some new and seasonal brews too.
With so many choices, why not try one of our beer flights. You can still buy a ‘pint’ but split into 1/3 glasses, so you can try 3 instead of just the one.
And as it’s Octoberfest, and as you may well find your favourite tipple, you can also opt for one of our 2 pint steins. Less visits to the bar! (* small deposit required!)
The full programme can be found on our October What’s On pages. will be added to throughout 2020.
Too much beer and food is nought without plenty of fresh air too. The colours in the glen during October can be spectacular. Get out and go and see them! Whether it’s a brisk walk in the woods in some crisp autumn air, or something a little more energetic, Octoberfest is about getting out and about before the onset of winter and enjoying all that Mother Nature has provided.
Meanwhile, back at Clachaig, there’s not just a warm fire and plenty to eat and drink waiting for you after your day spent exploring. Coming during Octoberfest we have:
