Iron the wrinkles out of your lederhosen because German-style beer and food await.
Although Oktoberfest is celebrated on different days during the next few weeks, the tradition of drinking and eating in copious amounts with your favorite people has remained the same over time.
Whether you’d like to visit a specific place for your favorite beer or get a taste of more than one local brewery at the Trail Dust Town Oktoberfest, you’ve got plenty of options this year.
Keep an eye on the dates because some are sooner than others. Plus, more events will be added to this list as we discover them.
1912 Brewing Company is celebrating the holiday with new beer releases, a new batch of their Kolsch, grilled brats, and pretzels with beer cheese by Rancho Preciado.
All food will be available from 4 – 7 p.m. and live German Folk music will be heard throughout the taproom all day.
Stay up to date with the event by visiting 1912 Brewing Company’s Facebook event page.
