I have a confession to make. I love beer. And I dream about testing and tasting beer and writing about that. I did it with rum. So, why not with beer too? Dreams can come true. We make them true. It happens. So, when I heard about Oktoberfest in Miami, I ran to write about it!
Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volksfest (people’s fair) in the world, annually held in Munich, Germany, since 1810. It is a 16-day festival running from late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the fair every year and more than 7 million liters of beer served!
Only beer brewed within the city limits of Munich (and with a 5.8% to 6.3% alcohol by volume) may be served at Oktoberfest. Beers meeting these criteria may be designated Oktoberfest Beer.
As usual, in Miami we have another story. The Fifth Annual Samuel Adams Oktoberfest is here. Not in Bavaria. But in Wynwood and will take place on Friday, September 19 and Saturday, September 20, 2014, at the Sam Adams Castle-Soho Studios.
Bringing Bavaria to Miami are partners in crime Tony Albelo of Social House Events and Javi Zayas of Zevents. So, forget about neon wearing and beat-pumping rave. This will be all about German traditions and of course beer!
Event tickets have been divided into three categories: The Bavarian, Der Kommisar and The Chancellor and range between $20 and $50.
“The Bavarian” ticket includes admission and a free 16 oz beer.
The “Der Kommisar” ticket includes admission, a commemorative Sam Adams Half-Liter Stein and one free Stein fill.
“The Chancellor”, a VIP ticket option, includes admission, a commemorative Sam Adams Half-Liter Stein, a souvenir Bavarian hat, access to "The Pavilion”, private VIP Bathrooms and two free Stein fills.
Stay tuned because a 50% off discount code will be offered as a pre-sale incentive.
