As we toast the arrival of the autumn season we welcome back one of our favorite annual specialty beers – Oktoberfest. This traditional German lager honors the centuries-old Oktoberfest celebration that countries rejoice in around the world. This year, the official Oktoberfest festival runs September 22nd-October 7th. At Standing Stone,we’ll keep the merriment alive with this seasonal beer on tap all month long.

Oktoberfest is a two-week holiday held each year in Munich, Germany during late September and early October.  It is attended by six million people each year, making it the world’s largest fair, and inspires similar events in Germany and around the world. In 2010, the festival rang in its 200 year anniversary! Of course, we’re happy to join in the age-old fun.
