Beer Tent Hire

Beer Tent Hire

I went travelling about Europe last year and the most impressive thing that I witnessed was Oktoberfest. Although perhaps that makes me a bit of an alcoholic, it was just so much fun. So anyway last week I was sitting in my garden drinking a beer on one of the UK's rare sunny days


and I had the idea of having my own little version of Oktoberfest in my back garden. Of course I had no intention of shelling out for a massive tent that I was only going to use for one day so I had an internet search for beer tent hire and it turns out that I was not the only one to have this idea.

Beer tent hire is actually largely available in the UK and the reason for this is that they are basically just regular marquee tents that are marketed towards beer lovers. A lot of the companies advertising beer tent hire are also more than happy to rent you a keg and a tap as well and upon reading this I became very excited indeed. I therefore made a couple of phone calls to my friends and they made a few phone calls to their friends and all of a sudden I had a massive guest list. I was a bit worried about everyone fitting in so I did a bit of research and it turns out that each guest for a party within a tent should ideally have about seven square feet all to themselves. Now, I ended up having about five square feet per person and though it was a little bit cramped everyone still had a good time. So basically, if you are interested in beer tent hire but are worried about space then from my experience you can do it with five square feet per person but less than this probably shouldn't be advised.

The next thing that I had to consider was colour. I was expecting a sunny day so I felt the best decision was plain old white. It has the best insulating properties so even if the sun is shining on it won't be too hot. I also opted for an open style tent so a lot of fresh air can circulate about the place. Now this all worked out pretty good for me because I was lucky with the weather. However, it didn't seem like it would provide much protection from the rain so next time I'm probably going to hire a semi-closed tent and if you are planning beer tent hire, I would advise you to do the same.

So in conclusion, I had a pretty great day and it seems that beer tent hire in the UK is actually remarkably easy and not all that expensive either. So if you can't make it to Oktoberfest this year, I would highly recommend it. Though it obviously isn't half as much fun, I can't think of a better way to enjoy the UK Summer.
