Kildare's has put together a great afternoon of fun and to truly get into the spirit of Oktoberfest.
It starts with a ceremonial Wooden Keg of the Weihenstephan Festbier. This will be tapped at 4pm (ish) to kick off the celebrations. O’zapft is!
Around 5pm we will be rounding things out with the Weihenstephan Stein Hoisting Competition.
