Oktoberfest at Red Shed Brewery

Dust off your lederhosen (or dirndl for the ladies) and get ready for Cooperstown’s ONLY Oktoberfest! From September 27-29 we will have German food, music and games in true Munich style. Did we mention the steins? Liter steins. Holding them, filling them, drinking traditional Oktoberfest lager from them.

Hungry? Our German specialties for the weekend include Kasespatzle made with housemade cheese sauce, Bratwurst and chicken sandwiches, Bavarian roasted nuts and Red Shed’s famous jumbo Bavarian pretzel with housemade IPA mustard and Otsego Golden Ale Beer cheese – all available for purchase.

Thirsty? Our annual Oktoberfest lager will be available, in addition to all our other brews on tap. Buy a stein (.5L or 1L) and get special pricing on the fill.

Dance or sing along (or both) to Bavarian tunes and Oktoberfest favorites, toss a keg, bowl a keg, compete in the Kasskrugstemmen stein holding. And on Sunday, bring the pups! Admission is free all weekend, with fun for all ages.

Friday, September 27

A Bavarian feat of strength and endurance where contestants hold a one-liter stein of bier (which weighs about 5 pounds) out in front of them at shoulder level for as long as they can. No beer can be spilled, no elbows can be bent, and extended arms must be kept parallel to the ground. The winner is the person who can keep their stein aloft the longest. The winner of each division will be awarded a prize.
