About Oktoberfest



Oktoberfest means celebration and beer, so we're combining the spirit of a brewfest with Oktoberfest - even in this socially distanced world. We'll be serving up tasty German-style specials, beer taster trays, 4-oz. samples and pints of German-style beer, with live music as a backdrop to it all - for three days running. Find it all on the front lawn, along with the McMenamins beer truck!

And for folks celebrating at home, we've got a taste of Germany to go:

• Terminator Stout Kielbasa
• Hammerhead Ale Bratwurst
• Pint of Kümmel Kraut
• German Brown Mustard
• And of course, beer in cans or growlers to go!

McMenmins Kümmel Kraut
Bubbling away in Grand Lodge's Fermentation Chamber, you'll find all kinds of delicious concoctions, one of which is our Kümmel Kraut, made specially for Oktoberfest. We add caraway -a native to Germany - to classic kraut for a delicious pairing with German-style sausages. And it's good for you!

Live Music in the Gym

Please sit at designated tables only and maintain social distancing at all times.

Julie McCarl 6 - 9 pm
