Fourth Annual Oshkosh Oktoberfest at Dockside Tavern This Weekend

Let’s you and I talk about German beer. Better yet, let’s get together and drink some real German beer on Saturday, October 5 at Oktoberfest in Oshkosh. Here’s the deal: I’ll be at the beer sampling booth again at this year’s Oshkosh Oktoberfest where we’ll be pouring, sampling and talking about the flavors of authentic German beer and the history of German brewing. We’ll have at least six different brews to sample from Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr and Hofbräuhaus that will lead us through a tasting tour of Bavarian beer culture. You can try them all or just chosen few, but I suspect that after a couple hits the Gemütlichkeit will inspire a full flight. The tastings will run continuously throughout the afternoon and if you find a beer among the bunch that you especially love, they’ll be serving full-sized portions of all them in the heated beer-garden tent. And if you really feel you need an excuse to drink some beer, there’s the fact that Oshkosh Oktoberfest is a fundraising event benefitting Cerebral Palsy of Mideast Wisconsin.

All right, that’s enough for me but there’s plenty of other good stuff happening at our Oktoberfest. The big change for this year is that the event will take place at Dockside Tavern (6th & Oregon) and admission will be free. There’ll be authentic German food provided by The Roxy and music from Blaskapelle Milwaukee, the Tuba Dan Band, Copper Box, Hard Drive, and Greg Waters & the Broad Street Boogie.
