Things Kicked off Monday with the house all dressed up in Bavarian flags, a special Oktoberfest Menu, and 6 new German inspired beers. The 1L Steins were flying out of the bar not long after. It might have been Monday, but you know, it was Monday…
Throughout the week, the kitchen served up some German classics such as Käsespatzle, Pretzels, Sauerkraut, and Currywurst and a few surprises like Steckerlfisch, Germ Knodel, and Portobello Schnitzel.
Saturday was our big night of Oktoberfest, the grand finale to a week long salute to German beer and culture. Songs were sung, dances danced, and steins were poured. Lots of them. Our friends from Hamburg SuperFreunde came over to celebrate the release of their collaboration with To Øl, Tandem Thrills. To tag along with this Dry Hopped Lager, alos brought their Bavarian made ‘Pils’ and ‘We Go To Porto’, a bright and fruity Pale Ale, proving that not all German beers need to be Lagers to be tasty.
The night really kicked off when the 12 Piece band Heidis und Hosen brought the house to life with their schlager music. Things escalated from there with the whole house in the spirit for a good old fashioned party. We all know it’s been a while.
Thank you everyone who came out, we’re all a little bit tired but we made it through. Hope to see the same spirit and energy next year. Prost!
It’s that time of the year again, where you can truly celebrate your love for beers served in huge glasses, for being a bit louder and to feel a little Bavarian. And yes, traditionally Oktoberfest is held from mid September, and who are we to disrupt tradition?
