That’s why the thoughtful folk at Liverpool Organic Brewery have brought in the big Gins to a specially built Gin Garden for those who prefer beverage made from berries instead of grains.

Gin has become a favourite among spirit drinkers lately and Liverpool Gin is among the top choice of connoisseurs across the UK. Come quaff the most refreshing Gin and tonics or Gin cocktails instead of a pint, no one will judge . . . honest.

Looking Forward to Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017

Strap on your Lederhosen, grab your steins and get ready for an Oom-pah-ing good time at Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017. Taking over Pier Head this giant German festival has become a favourite among Liverpool residents and visitors alike and will be hosted this weekend from 21st – 24th September.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect from Liverpool Oktoberfest 2017.

Cheap German Beer

Liverpool Oktoberfest

source: The Antiques Diva

Fans of a perfectly brewed golden ale will understand the joy of picking up a chilled glass of German beer. Especially when it comes in huge stein glasses that can hold two pints of the stuff.

This year your pennies will stretch further too as organisers are selling these giant bevvies for just £8.

Unlikely to run short Oktoberfest will be supplied by a tanker holding 23,000 litres of specially brewed beer brought in from a 200-year-old Bavarian brewery.

Steins for everyone.

Awesome Attire

Traditional Bavarian attire will be worn by all staff at Liverpool Oktoberfest, ladies in their dirndl and guys getting their pins out in Lederhosen.

These delightful garments have been around for centuries inspired by the traditional garb of peasants who lived and still live in the Alps.

Dirndl

Liverpool Oltoberfest

source: Bild.de

In the1870’s the dirndl became the height of fashion among ladies of the upper classes in Austria and by 1890 the popularity of the garment had spread to the rest of the country.

A properly tailored dirndl can set you back a couple of hundred euros, made from custom printed fabrics and made to measure.

The dirndls of today are still worn on formal or special occasions by Austrian and Bavarian ladies. The less traditional outfits, whilst styled similar to the dirndl are reserved for festivals or costumes in themed bars and restaurants around the world.

Lederhosen

Liverpool Oktoberfest

source: potujmo.net

Translated literally as “leather breeches” Lederhosen are derived from the working-class uniform of Bavaria.

The tough wearing material of Lederhosen was perfect for men who daily undertook physical labour in their job roles.

Instead of catapulting to the height of fashion at the end of the 17th-century Lederhosen popularity declined as it was regarded as clothing for “uncultured peasants” rather than fashionable attire for the upper classes.

The classic Lederhosen and techniques for tailoring them are now preserved as a heritage Bavarian garment and are regarded as a symbol of Bavarian pride or male virility. Many regional men still chose to wear Lederhosen to carry out taxing outdoor chores or to attend local festivals or pubs.

At Oktoberfest, both dirndl and Lederhosen will be making an appearance in traditional and more modern forms. Get into the spirit and check out the latest modern Bavarian fashion here for inspiration.

Deliciously Traditional Delicacies

Liverpool Oktoberfest

source: GMA Network

All this beer will need soaking up with some tasty food and luckily Oktoberfest will be bringing more than mass quantities of German alcohol down to Pier Head.

Immerse yourself in the Bavarian culture completely by dining on dishes such as Bratwurst, Brezel, Schnitzel and Schweinebarten. All perfect dishes to accompany a pint or tow of Bavarian beer made mainly of pork and pastry.

Better still there are fabulous offers for both beer and food available including Bavarian sausage, fries and a ½ pint of Feistber, just to get you started.

Full on Festival Atmosphere

Liverpool Oktoberfest

Through the weekend there will be a live DJ playing some traditional and popular German tunes and of course what Oktoberfest would be complete without an Oom-pah band.

Prepare yourself by brushing up on your German music knowledge with a few favourite tracks;

  • Anton aus Tyrol
  • Cowboy und Indianer (Kom hol das Lasso raus)
  • Fliegerlied
  • Ein Prosit der Gemuetlichkeit
  • Zikke Zakke, Zikke Zakke hey hey hey

You and your friends are guaranteed an experience of German heritage and culture as well as a full stomach and a taste for finely brewed German beer at this year’s Liverpool Oktoberfest.

Don’t forget to grab yourself a souvenir stein glass and head on down to Pier Head this weekend.

The Perfect Oktoberfest AccommodationShankly Hotel Group accommodation

Moments away from Oktoberfest fun The Shankly Hotel is the ideal place to rest your tired feet after a day dancing to Oom-pah tunes.

The 146th Golf Open Comes Back to Royal Birkdale

The Shankly Hotel was built upon a wealth of sporting heritage, and as a result, we are extremely excited to welcome The Golf Open back to Royal Birkdale this summer for the 10th time. With some of the greatest golfers coming together in close proximity to Liverpool, make sure you get your tickets to enjoy this remarkable display of golfing ingenuity at the 146th Open 2017.

The Oldest Championship in Golf

source: www.thoughtco.com

In 1860 eight men took to Prestwick St Nicholas golf course to determine who would be named the champion golfer among them. First prize was a belt fashioned from rich red Morrocan leather worth a whopping £25 pounds (over £500 to date), named the Challenge Belt.

Three rounds played over the challenging links course resulted in a win by Willie Park Senior beating his rival Old Tom Morris by just two shots. It was from here that the golf open became a tournament open to experienced players across the globe.

For over 150 years talented golfers have battled it out to be honoured the title “Champion Golfer of the Year” and the prize of the iconic Claret Jug.

The Claret Jug replaced the Challenge Belt in 1870 after the belt was won three times in a row by Young Tom Morris and was his for keeps.

In 1872 Morris won The Open again but the new trophy had not been ready in time to present it to him.Then in 1873 Morris’ winning streak was felled by Tom Kidd who was lucky enough to be the first player to receive the Claret Jug, Morris’ name was however engraved first upon the trophy.

Over last century and a half, the winners of The Open have entertained swarms of golf fans with riveting performances of skill and determination. This time honoured golfing competition continues to attract new comers to the sport of golf and bring crowds of spectators to 14 links courses dotted around Britain’s picturesque coastline each year.

The Open at Royal Birkdale

source; www.finegolf.co.uk

Situated north of Liverpool on the coast of Southport Royal Birkdale is a sweeping links course that has been carved out among towering sand dunes by three generations of golf course architects.

Royal Birkdale is recognised as the 18th best golf course in the world outside the USA, due to its excellent spectator vantage points and

The first Open Championship to be hosted in Royal Birkdale was in 1954 when winner Peter Thompson became the first Australian to lift the Claret Jug after his triumph. After this Thompson went on to win a further three Open Championships in a row.
