On 9/19/19, the same weekend the Oktoberfest starts in Munich, Germany, we'll be releasing our Oktoberfest beer.
Celebrate with us here at the brewery all weekend long.
We'll have German food, other food, polka music, special 2019 Oktoberfest mugs, and lots of Oktoberfest beer all weekend long.
So strap on your Lederhosen and get ready for a weekend of drinking, singing, and having a great time.

We'll have live music throughout the weekend.

On Friday, you'll find local polka band NOJM playing up a storm of "Ein Posits" and more starting at 5 pm on Friday and at 4:30 on Saturday.

NEW OLEANS JAZZ MACHINE on Friday, 9/20, 5-7pm and Saturday, 9/21, 4:30-6:30:

  • Carl Johnson, clarinet
  • Barkey Bryant, piano/vocals
  • Josh Huchin, bass
  • Dave Madden, drums
Food trucks will be available Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a mix of their regular specialties and their take on authentic German cuisine and Oktoberfest food specialties. Stop by each of the trucks to see if you can pick out the German-esque treats! Some of the food you’ll find throughout the weekend on the food trucks includes curry-wurst, brats, sauerkraut, German desserts and pies, and ice cream in the colors of Bavaria!
