Oktoberfest 2015click image for gallery


Saturday Sept. 19th:

Join us for a special party – on this day in Munich, at noon, Bavarians tap some kegs of beer (and behave themselves for the next weeks). That marks the beginning of a celebration called Oktoberfest. It began as a combination royal wedding feast, horse race, regional brewing showcase and harvest festival. Now the Munich tradition has become the largest party in Europe (perhaps beyond) …

This year we have done our best to bring the energy to Hayes Valley. We now disclose a secretly planned one day outdoor “pop-up” Oktoberfest(ival) planned with our friends at PROXY and Kloster Andechs (among others). We tap keg(s) at noon (not Munich time) on Saturday the 19th of September at the PROXY public lot on the corner of Hayes and Octavia. Delicious Andechs Fest bier on tap(ssss), special event keepsake drinking vessels, wristbands, bier tickets, t-shirts, music, Giant Oktoberfest pretzels, Casey’s Pizza and neighborhood fun times with Juice Shop, Ritual Coffee, Streets of San Francisco Bike Tours, Aether Apparel, Basic Training and Smitten Ice Cream. Tis the season.

BIERGARTEN follows up with a regular opening time: 3:00pm for more super Oktoberfest specials and lots of sausage and more bier.

Then SUPPENKÜCHE at 5:00pm for the deep Oktoberfest flavor. Don’t miss it. And you won’t, because Oktoberfest lasts much longer than one day. Pork Knuckle!
