Come celebrate with us as we kickoff our 2nd annual week-long, FDR Oktoberfest! And yes, the true Oktoberfest in Munich always starts in September but no one is going to quibble over such details when there is tasty beer involved.
Tradition would dictate we serve an old school German Oktoberfest, or the newer variety of German Festbier they pour by the litre in Munich ... but who says we have to stick to tradition?!
For our Fest, we'll be serving up "Helles Is Afraid We'll Take Over", a beautiful, light, malty Munich Helles, as well as "mOktoberfest Ale", an amber-colored, malt-forward beer inspired by the traditional Oktoberfest lager served at the fest in Munich up until 1990.
The Schedule of Events is as follows:
Saturday, September 23rd: Opening Night: Live Music by Duckmandu, Fresh Bavarian Pretzels, A Sausage Stand, and our crowd favorite - The Beer Stein Holding Contest (9:00 pm)
Tuesday, September 26th: It's still TACO TUESDAY but with a TWIST! Bavarian Fusion Tacos! Yep!
Thursday, September 28th: Live Music Thursday will feature "The Treacherous French." While not a German Style Band, they recently released a new album and we dig their vibe ... besides a member of their band plays a WASHBOARD! So ... yeah.
Saturday, September 30th: Live Accordion Music by the illustrious Duckmandu, Pretzel necklaces, A Sausage Stand, and our crowd favorite - The Beer Stein Holding Contest (9:00 pm)
Sunday, October 1st: Live Music by "Mad Hungry". Mad Hungry features three-part harmonies and a folk-style instrumentation, usually acoustic guitar, upright bass, and melodica. And of course we'll have more sausages, pretzels, and stein-holding revelry!
All week we'll have festive Oompah music playing and our fun photo-op backdrop with props for your social media pleasure ... So, break out your Dirndls and Lederhose and come join the fun!
