Oktoberfest Themed Leicester Tapas Trail

In case you missed it, I’m running the Leicester Tapas Trail until 18th October 2015. Put simply, you visit a participating venue, give them £3 and they give you a delicious drink and something to eat. You can’t say fairer than that.

Taps, on Guildhall Lane, are one of the latest venues to join the Tapas Trail. I thought I’d share with you a little insight into what they are offering for the princely sum of three pounds… Taps is a super friendly bar, with its USP being beer taps on the tables so you can pour your own when you visit. They also have an excellent selection of bottled and draught beer from around the world, which is what we’re taking advantage of on the Tapas Trail.

As part of the Taps Oktoberfest celebration, you can bag yourself either a can of Sly Fox’s Oktoberfest, a malty lager brewed with German Vienna malts and German hops, or a bottle of Flying Dog’s own special edition, Marzen, brewed with 100% German ingredients giving a full bodied sweetness.

Pair this up with a German sausage cassoulet with homemade bread, all perfectly spiced and lovely and warming you are talking about a slice of fried gold for just 300 of your English pennies. If you’re vegetarian, not to worry, the cassoulet is also available as a bean only model without the sausage. 

I know I keep carrying on about how great all of the Tapas Trail deals are, but I seriously keep getting blown away when a new venue joins in and offers something truly incredible. You’ve only got 3 weeks left to enjoy the Trail, so I urge you not to miss out! Taps are offering their deal between 12pm and 9pm Monday to Saturday. Prost!
