International Berlin Beer Festival

International Berlin Beer Festival
The International Berlin Beer Festival (Internationales Berliner Bierfestival) is an annual beer festival held in the capital of Germany. One of the largest beer festivals in Germany, it draws about 800,000 attendees from all over the world every year. The Berlin International Beer Festival hosts the world’s longest beer garden, offering more than 2,000 different beers from almost 90 countries.

Germany has an old tradition of beer festivals. The most famous one is, of course, Oktoberfest that takes place in Munich every fall. The International Berlin Beer Festival might be not so old or big, but it still is a large-scale event that attracts thousands of tourists from around the world. It features more than 340 breweries that present about 2,400 unique beer brands. Besides, visitors can enjoy culinary specialties, live music, various shows, games and contests, and more.

The main attraction at the Berlin Beer Festival is the world’s longest beer garden. It was officially recorded in the Guinness World Records. Located along Karl-Marx-Allee between the Frankfurter Tor and the Strausberger Platz, it covers an area of 2.2 km. Alongside with an impressive selection of craft beers, the beer garden features 19 stages of high-quality entertainment.

Each year the International Berlin Beer Festival has a new focus. It can be a country, region, or theme. Past focuses have included the Czech Republic, Belgium, Vietnam, the Baltic Region, Poland, craft beer, 500 years of purity regulations, traditional breweries from North Rhine-Westphalia, and others.

The International Berlin Beer Festival is a three-day event that takes place on the first weekend of August. Entrance is free, but you’ll have to pay for the beers you’d like to sample. Each brewery sets its own prices, and exclusive brews are more expensive than mass-produced beers. Some breweries create new brews specifically for the festival.
