We love to party, so why not throw a bash to celebrate the official kickoff of Oktoberfest in Germany along with the release of some awesome beers! We are closing down the street and will have a big Oktoberfest tent with German themed trivia, New Bohemia food truck with German themed food, special brewery barrel aged bottle beers, and of course the release of our 2018 Sleepwalker IIIPA and Oktoberfest beers! And what would be an Oktoberfest party without a stein? 17.75oz LTD Steins will be available for $5, SIP Club Members and Boot club members bring your own glassware! We’ll have something for everyone at the event and it's free (the event... just not the beer)!
