Longford firm invited to showcase at Oktoberfest 2016

Local artisan butchers and food vendors, Herterich’s, have scored major success with the news that they have been invited to showcase their gourmet mobile unit at   Oktoberfest 2016 hosted by Guinness Brewery.

The Herterich family celebrate sixty years in business this month  and the Dublin invitation comes after they won five out of six Northern Region categories at the All-Ireland Sausage Competition. 

Looking forward to this week’s event, Louis Herterich said: “We will bring with us a varied and tasty selection of  cured meats and a warm ham hock, which will please even the most discerning foodie.”

Also joining the midlands based specialists at the food festival will be German Master Butcher James McGeough of McGeough’s Butchers in Connemara and Dublin’s Krüst Bakery. All three businesses will be serving traditional German bites created to complement the selection of German beers available on tap at The Open Gate Brewery during the event.   

Oktoberfest  goes ahead at the home of Guinness over three days, Thursday  and Friday, September 29 and 30  from 5.30pm – 10.30pm, with Wednesday  opening for invited guests such as food and drinks writers, bloggers and food influentials from all over the country.

Tickets are priced at €15 which includes entry, a flight of beer and complimentary authentic German food including pretzels and bratwurst. To purchase tickets for the Oktoberfest please log onto
