Come join us on Saturday for another Octoberfest celebration. Great tunes, good eats, and of course your favorite brews!

Update: 9/23/2019

Events: We will be having some friendly competitions, for you to go on the line and see about winning yourself a full Liter stein! The events will be held throughout the day, starting around 1:00, and signups will be at the bar. The events include:

Stein holding

Stein Racing

Wife Carry

Lucy dress-up contest (yes, you have to show us your best Lucy! Come dressed to impress!)

Tap List- in addition to our normal year-round offerings at the taproom and the normal one-offs, we have been hoarding a bunch of German-style beers... which is also why there have been far fewer one-offs. Those of you who know our brewer know this is what he loves to do, so don't miss out!

The brews that will debut will be:

*Foxpoint Pilsner- traditional German pils with Mittelfruh hops

*Mast to Marzen- Marzen style lager (think most Oktoberfests), so an orange/amber colored lager with beautiful nutty flavors.

*Back Pew Vator- This blonde dopplebock was at last year's

Oktoberfest, but as a fan favorite, didn't last long. Don't miss it!

*Back Pew Vator-er- Yes, stupid name. No, not stupid beer. A more traditional bock, this is a very big amber lager that got a double decoction. An homage to the original dopplebock creators.

*Strawberry/Guava Radler: Yep, we need to keep you guys in check somehow! a nice low gravity beer made with real fruit!

*Kingsbrau- we saved some just for this event- ya'll drank the rest of it already!

*Addi's Faith Kolsch- it will be on until Oktoberfest, but will still be on for the day

*Dunkel- by the day of, it will have a name, but this darker lager isn't heavy, similar to Black Habit that way, but won't have the roasted character Black Habit has. First time this has been done in a very long time, so be excited!

exAltation Ale- Altbier! We did it at the behest of one loyal altbier fan last year to great success, so we wanted to do it again this year!

Plus! One secret beer that is a fan favorite and has not seen the tap wall in some time. We won't be telling you until we add it to our Untappd menu morning of, so keep an eye our or just get here so you don't miss it!

On Stage: The Crashers 2:00-6:00 PM, and we will have the Homebrewed Brass Ensemble for some um-pah fun!

Food Truck: The Sauer Kraut Truck
