A vegan Oktoberfest is going to take place in Stroud, Gloucestershire. The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen is where the event will take place, hosted by the Drunk Punks Collective.
Seitan’s Grill will be attending the event, along with the creators of the Vegan Punks blog. Local beers will be offered, with Stroud Brewery and More Brewery, from Bristol, getting involved with the event.
Veganism is a growing lifestyle in the South West, with two successful vegan fairs which saw a turnout of over 4,000 people in total.
Organised by Vegan Punks, they said: “In 2018, veganism has been surrounded by an unstoppable energy the cruelty-free food market has seen a huge increase. There’s been a 62 per cent growth in plant-based products between 2013 and 2017, according to a recent report by Innova markets Insights.
“And the number of vegans in Britain has also increased by 360 per cent in the last 10 years, while another statistic said that 28 per cent of the UK public is trying to decrease its meat consumption.”
The full line up is yet to be confirmed, but tickets for the event cost £5, with some limited edition early bird tickets that will be released, which will include beer tokens and discounted entry. Children can go in for free.
