Oktoberfest Season At Strangeways Starts Tonight


Credit: Strangeways Brewing

There is a new hat being thrown into Richmond’s Oktoberfest ring. That hat belongs to Strangeways Brewing and knowing Neil Burton’s love for the German born festival, I’m surprised it has taken them this long to have one of their own. Unlike other festivals in town, Strangeways will be celebrating through the traditional Oktoberfest season (9/16 – 10/3) plus all of October.

Check out the rest of what Strangeways has planned:

This Friday, September 15th starting at 4pm Kicks off Oktoberfest in Strangeways Outdoor Biergarten, plus the release of our brand new seasonal Oktoberfest beer FEST!

We’ll be celebrating all through the traditional Oktoberfest (Sept. 16-Oct. 3) and then we’ll just keep on going all October long. Come sit outside in our Outdoor Biergarten, and drink from liter steins just like they do in the Old Country. Strangeways Steins full of select flagship beers and our special Oktoberfest brew, FEST will be available. $13 gets you your BIG pour, or $20 gets you the liter of beer AND you get to keep your commemorative Strangeways Stein to take home.

The German Snack Shack will serving up German eats including Brats marinated in our very own Helles Frozen Over Munich Helles Lager. Be sure to pair your brät with a stein full of the Helles Frozen Over, or our newest seasonal lager FEST Oktoberfest beer for a flavorful combo.

German Snack Shack Schedule:
Friday, September 15 4-9pm
Friday, September 22 4-9pm
Saturday, September 23 noon-7pm

Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Oktoberfest, we will spontaneously challenge our biergarten patrons to Stein holding contests for awesome Strangeways merchandise. You never know when it will happen, so plan to come hang.

The following beers will be available in Strangeways Steins:
-FEST Oktoberfest Bier
-Helles Frozen Over Munich Helles Lager
-Albino Monkey Belgian White Ale
-Hop Howler IPA
-Woodbooger Belgian Brown Ale
-Phantasmic Belgian IPA
