10th Anniversary Oktoberfest/ September 16th
O’zapft is! Join us on Saturday, September 16th, as we transform into a Bavarian Beer Hall and Beer Garden for our grand 10th Anniversary Oktoberfest bash! Swing through from 11am – 5pm as we pour 10 German-style beers commemorating 10 years, including the annual release of Hill House, our traditional Bavarian-style Fest Lager, and a sneak preview of Code Orange, our brand-new Sticke Altbier brewed with Bierstadt Lagerhaus.
In honor of the occasion, we’re pouring a total of 10 German-style beers: eight tapped from rubber-clad Fraconian-style gravity kegs, and two pouring on draft. All of our featured beers will be available in special Bluejacket one-liter steins, while supplies last. Guests can take home these limited edition mugs with the purchase of their first large-format beer!
And that’s not all, folks. We’ll have live Oompah music from The Edelweiss Band, a stein holding competition, plus a scrumptious selection of Bavarian-inspired dishes from the kitchen – Beer Brats, Pretzels, Pork Schnitzel, Wiesn Hendl, Knockwurst and more.
Our 10 Anniversary Oktoberfest is free to attend, with all beer and food priced a la carte. 16 oz. cans of Hill House and Before Sunrise will also be available for purchase to-go. As an added bonus, we’ll also have a limited amount of Hill House 5 L mini kegs available as well. Lederhosen encouraged!
