September 17 @ 11:00 am 4:00 pm

O’zapft is! Saturday, September 17th, Bluejacket will transform into a Bavarian Beer Hall and Beer Garden for our grand Oktoberfest bash. Swing through from 11 to 4 as we toast the holiday with the release of Hill House, our traditional Bavarian-style Fest Lager, and Before Sunrise, our brand-new Austrian Märzen collaboration with Sojourn Fermentory!

In honor of the occasion, we’re tapping 7 unfiltered German-inspired beers in rubber-clad Fraconian-style gravity kegs. Hill House (Fest Lager), Before Sunrise (Austrian Märzen), Small Conversations (Helles Lager), Love Cats (Northern German Pilsner), Change Tomorrow (Bavarian-style German Pilsner), Always Wonder (Schankbier Lager) and Pattern Skies (Weissbier) will be available in special Bluejacket one liter steins, while supplies last. Guests can take home these limited edition mugs with the purchase of their first large format beer.

And that’s not all, folks. We’ll have live Oompah music from The Edelweiss Band & The Polka Terps, plus a scrumptious selection of Bavarian-inspired dishes from the kitchen – Beer Brats, Pretzels, Pork Schnitzel, Wiesn Hendl, Knockwurst and more.

Oktoberfest is free to attend, with all beer and food priced a la carte. 16 oz. cans of Hill House and Before Sunrise will also be available for purchase to-go. As an added bonus, we’ll also have a limited amount of Hill House 5 L mini kegs available as well. Lederhosen encouraged!
