A Raging alcoholic from Newry celebrates Oktoberfest every day in his flat, he has claimed.
The 38 year old man who cannot be named enjoys beers from around the world in the celebratory atmosphere of his one bedroom flat in the Meadow, with traditional entertainment from the television.
He told Newry Spud:
“You don’t need to be in a big tent with crowds, barmaids with big diddies and lederhosen to enjoy the world’s biggest festival of binge drinking. The best party is the one in your mind.
“My Oktoberfest happens at home, with just me there, and for twelve months a year instead of one.
“I used to vary the beer selection although now it’s focused on strong budget beer which has a great fizzy taste. Sometimes I cry uncontrollably but generally it is great.”
He admitted that this year’s Oktoberfest budget was particularly tight after he was sacked from his job and his wife divorced him.
