2012 Widmer Brothers Oktoberfest
Widmer Brothers Oktoberfest 929 North Russell Street Friday, Sept. 7th, 7pm to 11pm Saturday, Sept. 8th, 1pm to 11:00pm
Friday night, I’m headed to the wilds of North Portland to cover my first beer event, the Widmer Brothers Oktoberfest. I am relieved that this limited selection event is my breakthrough—as going through the beers of one brewery is not as daunting as facing dozens, and I can, indeed, try them all. Add that to the fact that yummy, hearty German food will be served to soak up any overage that might otherwise prove embarrassing while I clumsily get my beer blog legs on (something like sea legs, I imagine).
I’m also looking forward to my first taste of the 2012 Okto Festival Ale, curious to see if it brings with it something similar to the happy misadventures inspired by their Hefeweizen during the fall of my senior year in college.
A souvenir stein is required for consuming beer. Attendees can also bring steins from previous years to the event. All beer and food is purchased with tokens, which cost $1 each. Patrons pay six tokens for a souvenir stein, five tokens for a full stein of beer and food items are $1-$7. This is a 21+ event, no pets.
