The popular beer festival at Irish Village is back with a twist…

With the end of August in sight we can finally start to look forward to some cooler weather – and some top annual winter events. And one of our favourites is back with a bang this year as popular Dubai pub, The Irish Village, is set to host their two-day beer festival, Hopfest, this September at their original Garhoud location.

This year will mark the venue’s 15th birthday and will run on Thursday September 12 from 6pm and all day, Friday September 13 from 12pm.

As well as over 80 craft beers to make your way through, the festival will also be home to a dedicated gin bar, serving up an array of creative mixed drinks.

While the event is free entry, there’ll be some top drinks deals, including vouchers for four drinks and a food item for Dhs175, or ten drinks plus a food item for Dhs350, if you’re planning on heading down for a full day of Hopfest fun.

While mid-September can still be quite balmy, the event will take place under the huge tent canopy on the lawn at The Irish Village, with a top program of live bands and DJs playing all the best party hits.

The following week will also see the return of Oktoberfest at The Irish Village, with a weekend filled with authentic German food, traditional Steins of beer and an official Oktoberfest band taking to the stage. The four-day festival will run from September 18 to 21 from 7pm each evening.

Bring on September…

Hopfest at The Irish Village, Garhoud, Dubai, 6pm onwards Thursday September 12, 12pm onwards Friday September 13.. Tel: (04) 282 4750.
