It’s not as if we needed an excuse to indulge in a frothy beer and a juicy bratwurst, but we’ll take it! Here are five fun and festive Oktoberfest celebrations happening near you!
This restaurant may be nestled in the deep south, but one meal here and you’ll feel transported to a rooftop restaurant in Germany. Everything is served oversized and over-the-top delicious. Alongside their generous 20 oz beer pour, guests of Der Biergarten can order classic German dishes such as Weiner schnitzel, jäger schnitzel, sauerkraut, bratwurst, and Bavarian cheeses. Happening now until October 27th. Prost to that!
Germany is coming to Atlanta this October–specifically Historic Fourth Ward Park! You can look forward to lots of frothy beers, live music, 1/2 meter long bratwursts, a ceremonial keg tapping, and even a pretzel toss! Happening Friday, October 11th through the 12th! Tickets start at just 20 bucks, or RSVP on Facebook for more info!
This downtown spot has a really impressive Oktoberfest menu being served now until October 6th! You’re going to love items like their Brezel–a soft pretzel served with warm beer cheese made with Max Lager’s craft beer–and the Wurst Sandwich–beer brats on a hoagie with red cabbage kraut and grainy mustard. For Oktoberfest only, you can also sip on their specialty Märzen style lager, MaxFest Bier, with earthy malt undertones and a hint of toasted caramel. Go now!
Live music, inflatable ax throwing, and free beer for the best pair of lederhosen in the house! Eventide Brewing is one our favorite craft breweries, serving up excellent brews in Grant Park. You’ll also be able to purchase a commemorative Eventide Oktoberfest stein complete with the first fill free! Happening on October 26th and you can find more info here.
If you really wanna go full lederhosen, head to Atlanta’s favorite totally hokey but also ridiculously fun weekend getaway destination. Just an hour and a half north of Atlanta, this small town has plenty of fun outdoor activities, tons of vineyards for you to get your drink on, and a global food scene. Go for fried cheese at Muller’s Famous Fried Cheese Cafe or schnitzel and potato pancakes at Old Heidelberg this Oktoberfest!
