Air out the lederhosen, iron that dirndl, and prep your stein muscles: Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest 2018 is – Saturday, October 13th, 2018, from 5pm to 10pm at Sierra Nevada Brewing’s Six Row Field in Mills River, NC. Best of all, there will be FREE shuttles from Asheville!
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest is a celebration of German food, music, culture, and more. Every year sees feasting, costumes, dancing, live entertainment, contests, and – of course – plenty of amazing beer.
For this year’s Oktoberfest collaboration festival beer, Sierra Nevada worked with Germany’s Weihenstephan Brewery. Weihenstephan has the distinction of being the world’s first and oldest brewery, so you know this year’s beer is going to be a special one! There will be many other beers on hand, too, long with water, iced tea, and lemonade.
You’re going to need something to float on that personal pond of beer you build – but don’t worry. Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest has you covered there, as well, with a contemporary feast of German proportions – all included with your ticket price. Sausage and sauerkraut, sauerbraten, wood roasted pig, German potato salad, veggies, and more. You can also use your beer tickets for Bavarian style pretzels and German chocolate cupcakes, if you so choose.
2018 Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest Entertainment
You’ll also be able to enjoy live demonstrations as local glassblowers create works of art before your very eyes! Other attractions include the Chicken Dance Contest and a Moustache-Off, for those of you who think your moustache is the absolute bomb. Winners will receive 2 tickets to Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest 2019.
