A Suffolk pub is looking forward to a barmy Bavarian weekend as it looks to host its own Oktoberfest celebration.

The Laxfield Low House will showcase German beers on Saturday, September 4 – with a host of craft offerings from Leiston's The Krafty Braumeister on tap.

The craft brewery is run by German Uli Schiefelbein, who moved to Suffolk in 2013, and includes traditional Düsseldorf-style altbier, Bavarian hefeweizen and Munich-style helles.

Celebrations will start from noon with a mini German "beerfest", including four of Uli's best-selling beers on draught.
