Doolally’s Oktoberfest 2011

I’ve been wanting to go to the Doolally Brew Pub in Pune  for a while now, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I hear that they have some awesome brews and now I have even more incentive – Doolally’s own version of Oktoberfest.

From October 14 to 16, 2011 Doolally promises great handcrafted beer, authentic German food and loud Bavarian music!

Brewmaster and co-founder Oliver Schauf is a German national and will be keeping a close eye on the freshly brewed Märzen, which is the traditional Munich Oktoberfest bier. And he promises that you won’t put your mug down.

But that is hardly the most exciting part. If you’re in Mumbai and still want a taste of the fresh brew, you are in luck! Doolally and Blue Bulb confirmed today that they are kickstarting the Oktoberfest Wagon.

This means that for Rs. 200 you can be part of a helluva crazy ride Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai. Of course the Wagon comes with complete entertainment solutions and a whole lot of madness.

I think the Oktoberfest Wagon is a great idea. Hopefully you’ll read a review here soon!
