Enjoy it! Repeat. For a retailer near you visit the dogfish fish finder @ www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/fish-finder.htm






So if it’s an October Fest why does it start in September? Oktoberfest is a two week festival, held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. While it is a giant world festival in Germany, Oktoberfest celebrations are held around the world during this time. So, if you can’t get to the fair in Germany, you can participate in a local event. A time to eat, drink, and be merry! Each year, the Oktoberfest is opened, as the mayor of Munich taps a keg a of beer. There is even a special brew made, aptly called Oktoberfest beer.Oktoberfest is not just a celebration of beer. It is a huge festival with lots of food, music, dancing, rides, and carnival booths. Each year millions of people from all over the world come to the fair. Oktoberfest celebrations and festivals are held around the world during this time. These festivals also celebrate the rich heritage of the German people.  Visit our local NEWARK OKTOBERFEST this weekend!
