Capitol City Brewing Company will host its seventeenth annual Oktoberfest on Saturday, October 1 from noon to 7 p.m. at The Village at Shirlington. Ticket sales begin at 11:30 a.m. and beer taps close at 6 p.m. Entrance is free for children and non-drinkers.
Enjoy a “familiennachmittag” or family afternoon like they do in Munich, Germany. Capitol City invites beer-drinkers and festivalgoers alike to dress in traditional German garb and enjoy the tastes of authentic Bavarian brews, bratwurst and brezlen – the German-style pretzel. More than 65 local breweries will set up taps and share ale and lager samples with the thousands of anticipated guests from the DMV region.
Capitol City will offer samples of its feature fall beers. In addition to sampling from more than 100 beer taps, festivalgoers can enjoy Alpine music while they taste authentic German cuisine and other American fare from various local eateries.
The $30 admission ticket for beer drinkers includes an official Oktoberfest wristband, a Capitol City branded tasting glass, and 10 drink tickets. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase for $1 each with a five-ticket minimum. Admission is free for non-drinkers. Beer-drinkers must be 21+ to purchase a ticket.
Oktoberfest will be held rain or shine!
