The first installment of the German beer festival in Mumbai saw an eclectic mix of live performances, games, dance and much more.

Digital magazine Alcohowl recently hosted its first installment of the internationally popular Oktoberfest in Mumbai.

And it wasn't just about sharing beer, eating good food and having fun.

To keep the celebrations authentic, the organisers also set up a wooden hut-shaped lounge which resembled the original German Hut where revellers could experience the festival in Bavarian costume.
