Drinks Adventures

Out now on Netflix, the TV series Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood is the closest you can get to the Oktoberfest in 2020.

Six million visitors were expected to descend upon on Munich this year for the festival, originally scheduled to run between September 19 and October 4.

But the coronavirus pandemic has meant this is the first year since World War 2 that Oktoberfest – the world's biggest beer festival – has not gone ahead.

Oktoberfest: Beer & Blood was a smash hit in Germany, where it was created, and it is now being shown globally by Netflix.

The lead character in the series is Curt Prank, whose story is loosely based on the life of a man named Georg Lang, who had an important role in shaping the Oktoberfest as we know it today.

Finland-born Hannu Salonen is the director of the series, and he joins us in this opening episode of Season 7 of the Drinks Adventures podcast.

I started this episode by asking Hannu how the series was conceived.

Drinks Adventures is a new podcast for adventurous drinkers of beer, wine, spirits, cider… and everything in between.

The impetus for the podcast is the many exciting trends we are currently witnessing across all categories of premium drinks.

Winemakers, brewers and distillers are increasingly experimenting and collaborating with one another on products that blur the definition of what’s in your glass like never before.

Such hybrid products are playing to drinkers who are increasingly open-minded and adventurous and enjoying a wide array of different drinks to suit different occasions, rather than identifying with one particular category.

Today’s drinker is consuming less alcohol overall, and instead spending more on higher quality products that deliver on flavour and are underpinned by authentic stories.

The people who produce and champion these fine drinks are the talent you will be hearing from on this podcast.

Drinks Adventures is produced and hosted by drinks writer James Atkinson.
