    I think I remember seeing somewhere that Erdinger may be on offer for Oktoberfest at Towers, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    Erdinger is definitely listed on the Towers website as being available.

    It was a staff preview night I believe.

    I might go just for the Erdinger. I lived off the stuff in EP.

    I'm guessing that if there is Erdinger it is either bottled or from an external vendor. It does not seem to be one of the beers on offer from Alton Towers themselves (or Thorpe for that matter).

    I don't think you can get it on draught in the UK. It is sold in bottles here though.

    Hopefully Towers Street team that are on park today and posting on Facebook can get better photos of menus to confirm everything.

    "Wunderbar"... I love a good pun :)

    Will Annual Pass discount be available? I guess not at any of the external vendors but assume so at the AT outlets.

    Oh don't worry, you can get it on draught in the UK! Spoons used to do it in some of their pubs, but then got rid of it because it is brewed in that evil place known as the EU. I've had it on draught at Winter Wonderland, but know other pubs do also have it.

    Off-topic, but you definitely can get it on tap in certain places. Stein's Berlin in Kensington being one that I visited relatively recently.

    There is indeed Erdinger at the Bier Keller stand on the lawns!

    It's definitely available on tap from The Bier Keller in Bracknell (part of the Coppid Beech Hotel):
    https://www.coppidbeech.com/bier-keller-2/

    Stayed here a few times for work purposes and was genuinely amazed to see it on draught!

    Pleased that it's available at Towers too - it's iconic and would have been silly not to have it.

    Saw a picture of the loaded fries and they don’t look great to be honest, seem very pricey as well at £8.

    The event looks great. Hope it does well enough to return next year.

    Unfortunately I won’t be attending due to the pandemic but would love to have the opportunity to visit in the years to come. Think they’re really onto something here.

    The food is an utter rip off.

    Went today and there was an excellent atmosphere on park. Really fun entertainment running all day, actors walking round and it's lovely overlooking the Towers with a beer. It was pricey especially the German sausages where it was £9 for a glorified hot dog. Had the hog roast though and it was delicious. The event created a great buzz and definitely worth a visit imo.
