Oktoberfest 2018

September 22 - September 30


Oktoberfest started as an enormous wedding celebration, and we’re keeping the tradition going with a mass vow renewal ceremony as part of our 9-day Oktoberfest revelries.
Where: Utepils Fernweh Taproom
When: September 22nd – 30th, noon-10pm daily



Wedding! Nondenominational vow renewal ceremony on Saturday, September 22nd at 11:00 a.m. with the party continuing after. No need to pre-register; sign up on the morning of Sept. 22nd beginning at 10:30am.

Party! Enjoy live music both weekends in our Oktoberfest beer tent.

Beer! Limited edition release of “Receptional,” a highly drinkable Festbier brew with balanced, smooth flavors of malt and biscuit. Our head brewer will be tapping the ceremonial keg on Saturday, September 22nd following the vow renewal ceremony. Liter steins will be available for purchase ($25, which includes a fill, $10 fills) at the beginning of the event until they run out! Receptional is available in cans for purchase in stores now and at the Fernweh Taproom—until it runs out!

Fun! Contests, games, music, and beer throughout each weekend.

Food! Food trucks on site all week long!

Race! Fondo Ride on September 29th at 8 a.m. with bike rides of 20-40-70 miles. Purchase your tickets in advance here!

Feeling commitment-phobic? You don’t have to renew your vows to be part of the celebration. After all, every wedding needs guests. Join us to eat, drink, and toast to the re-newlyweds.
