Dundee’s Oktoberfest beer festival is already off to a rip-roaring start, organiser say.
The Rotary Club of Dundee event is now in sixth year and organiser Robert Dunn said they hope to make it bigger and better each year.
The event, which takes place at Discovery Quay, kicked off on Thursday and will continue until Sunday night.
Mr Dunn said: “We are delighted with the start, to be honest. It has been first-class.
“On Thursday we had 36 businesses along and students helping to take tickets.”
He added: “We are trying to keep buildings it and keep trying to make tweaks and further improvements.
“Eventually we want to get to the stage where the tickets are sold out in advance but there are still some available on the door.”
This year’s event will feature 15 live bands while the bars will offer 26 local and authentic German beers, cask ales and ciders.
A Prosecco and gin bar has also been introduced this year.
German foods such as Bratwurst, Currywurst and Frickadellen have been imported especially for the weekend while Brotchen rolls are being provided by Dundee baker Alan Clark.
The event raised thousands of pounds for charity each year.
Mr Dunn said: “We will be distributing the money to charities in the Dundee area in the coming months.”
The beer festival will run from 6pm until 12 midnight on Saturday and Sunday.
