The feeling of that first night you need a sweater, turning the cold brew into a warm, school, football, hoodies and well…. OKTOBERFEST!!!! It’s our favorite time of year! As we start to say goodbye to the summer and bring on the best season of the year we are working hard to change up the brewery. From all new fall beers, to a heated beer garden patio, to fall accents throughout. We will start with a celebration of beer! We also are launching a special German Pills that has been aging since we opened last April!
Actually Oktoberfest originated on October 12, 1810, in celebration of the marriage of the crown prince of Bavaria, who later became King Louis I to Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The festival concluded five days later with a horse race held in an open area that came to be called Theresienwiese. By the late 20th century booths had developed into large beer halls made of plywood, with interior balconies and bandstands. Each of the Munich brewers erects one of the temporary structures, with seating capacities of some 6,000. The mayor of Munich taps the first keg to open the festival. The breweries are also represented in parades that feature beer wagons and floats along with people in folk costumes. Other entertainment includes games, amusement rides, music, and dancing. Oktoberfest begins on Saturday, September 17, and ends on Saturday, October 1, 2022. We have some special things planned so be sure to stop by – Prost!
