Weymouth's Octoberfest runs out of beer early

The organisers of Weymouth’s Octoberfest have apologised for running out of beer early on Saturday night.

They say it was down to strict guidelines set out by CAMRA’s national budgeting policy – and have contacted their head office.

Customers were given extra tokens for cider and refunds were issued were requested.

They say overall the festival was a success with 900 attending the event and 4,000 pints of beer and cider sold.

CAMRA bar manager Rich Gabe said:

“It’s a shame we were not able to offer Saturday night customers the fantastic  range of beer on offer the previous sessions, this is an issue that has been notified to CAMRA’s head office in St Albans and we are awaiting a response.

“On a more positive side, I would like to thank all the volunteers who gave up their free time to work, the customers for continued support and above all thank the customers that were understanding of the situation Saturday night.”

Weymouth Octoberfest will return next year with a celebration of all things Dorset with additional beer and cider on offer.
