About Oktoberfest



Oktoberfest means celebration and beer - so we're serving up tasty German-style specials, a flight of German beers, our Oktoberfest lager, and live music as a backdrop to it all.

McMenamins Oktoberfest Lager


Celebrate a longtime tradition with a traditional beer. We make this lager only once each year for our Oktoberfest celebrations – but it’s great for drinking anytime or place! Turn up the accordion, pour a pint in the autumn sun, and celebrate harvest season and beer.

Live Music

1-3pm * Coyote Willow
3:30-6pm * Mirko Pressler Band
7-9:30pm * Left on Wilson

About Coyote Willow

Cello-Fired Americana

Coyote Willow

Coyote Willow is an Americana band hailing from Bend, Oregon. This exciting artistic partnership joins Tim Coffey's soulful guitar, Kat Hilst's powerful cello and the duo's rich vocal harmonies, creating a unique blend of folk, roots, blues and intricate instrumentals. Their beautiful music with grit celebrates the magical rhythms of life. The pair have shared the stage with such illustrious musicians as Robert Earl Keen, Shawn Mullins, Sean Watkins (of Nickel Creek), David Jacobs-Strain, Keith Greeninger, and Radoslav Lorkovic. The group is a regional favorite, performing multiple venues, festivals and private events throughout the Pacific Northwest year round.



About The Mirko Pressler Band

The Mirko Pressler Band

The beginning of Mirko Pressler's life is reminiscent of The Sound of Music.  Mirko started to play accordion at age two but his family had to sell his little accordion to get money to flee their beloved country of Slovenia which had become part of Yugoslavia and came under communist control. The family set out climbing over the Karavank Alps ending up in Southern Austria then making their way from Austria to the United States, eventually settling in Southern California.

Soon Mirko "Mike" had another accordion and he continued his musical studies with some of the top accordion instructors in America and the world. Mirko studied continental music under the instruction of Leo Kostka, progressing to study Classical and Jazz idioms under world-renowned instructors Tito Guidotti and Tommy Gumina. Mirko's first television performance came in 1957 on a show called Rocket to the Stars, an early version of today's talent shows.

In 1964 Mirko turned professional and started to tour worldwide from Los Angeles to Sun Valley, Canada to the Grand Canyon and beyond. Mirko has been a featured soloist and has led his own orchestra. He has played restaurants, nightclubs, ski resorts and has been the featured performer at many an Octoberfest, with a musical repertoire that includes American Standards, Musicals, Light Rock and European Folk, making Mirko a favorite of all age groups.

Mirko continues to give back to the music he loves by tutoring, teaching and conducting studios as well as master classes.
