The fall season for beer lovers only means one thing – and no, we’re not talking about pumpkin beer. It’s the celebration of Oktoberfest, the world’s largest Volksfest or beer festival. Held annually in Germany, it’s a 16- to 18-day festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. In Miami however, we have Blocktoberfest hosted by Concrete Beach Brewery.
This year, the third annual celebration is back with stein hosting competitions, pretzel eating games, bratwursts, beer, and lots more so strap on your lederhosen and head over to Wynwood this Saturday for some fun!
Oktoberfest-style celebrations will take place from 1 to 7 PM at the Social Hall on Saturday, September 23 where guests can get a taste of Floridafest, the German-inspired brew with a hint of tropical influence.
Floridafest is the supreme South Florida beer to savor this fall – ideally under a palm tree as you attempt to shade yourself from the blaring sun – we are in Miami after all. The lager features subtle undertones of toasted coconut, with notes of toffee and vanilla that round out this smooth, medium-bodied beer.
The limited release beer is currently available on draft at select South Florida bars and restaurants, but 16 oz. four-pack cans will be exclusively available for purchase at the Blocktoberfest celebration starting this Saturday.
The event will feature live performances by Monster Sound Pro, delicious bratwursts by Babe Froman Fine Sausages, and more. Concrete Beach will donate $1 from every Floridafest beer sold during the event to Feeding South Florida, up to a maximum of $1,000.
