Where to Celebrate Oktoberfest 2017 in Baltimore

Once again, Baltimore Beer Week’s kickoff will coincide with some of the larger Oktoberfest-style events in the city, but in true German tradition, Oktoberfest celebrations are beginning already. Nearly two months of beer swilling and sausage eating? We’re in. Prost!

Birroteca
On September 21, Birroteca will take advantage of the mild fall temps and host their Italian take on Oktoberfest on their patio. This family-style OktoberFeast dinner will fuse together German and Italian cuisines in dishes like beer cheese fonduta bruschetta, schnitzel piccata, choucroute Italiano, and German chocolate cake cannolis. Plenty of pitchers of Oktoberfest style brews like Weihenstephaner Fest, Hofbräuhaus Oktoberfest, and Schlafly Oktoberfest will be poured. Tickets are $60.00 per person includes unlimited beverages and $45.00 per person for food only. Get your tickets here. (1520 Clipper Road, 443-708-1934)

Das Best Oktoberfest
The massive annual Oktoberfest celebration continues this year on October 14 at the M&T Bank Stadium Lots with over 150 international, domestic and local Maryland beers as well as domestic wines and schnapps to be sipped or swilled to the backdrop of a variety of oompah and polka bands. In addition to German favorites for purchase a la carte, there are also games (cornhole, tricycle races), contests (beer stein holding, best beer belly, Miss Oktoberfest), as well as giveaways and cash prizes. Check out the Das Best Oktoberfest site for information on tickets, opening tap celebrations, and other details. (Lot H, M&T Bank Stadium)
