Downtown Astoria will be host to a daylong Oktoberfest celebration when Buoy Beer Co. brings its annual Oktoberfest to the Astoria Armory on Saturday, September 23, 2023. The festival will include Oktoberfest beers, live music, food and the brewery’s fun stein-holding competition from 11:00am-10:00pm.
Plenty of beers will be pouring, including ones from Buoy Beer together with Obelisk Beer Co. and Ecliptic Brewing. Plus, Buoy Beer will be serving up tasty fresh-hopped beers in half and full-liter steins.
Speaking steins, Buoy will once again be hosting its Stein-ly Cup competition during its Oktoberfest. There will be three time slots – 11:30am, 2:30pm or 5:30pm – for the friendly competition. The winner from each of those rounds will compete at 7:30pm for prizes and more importantly, bragging rights! Sign-up for the stein-holding competition, aka the STEIN-ly Cup, here.
During the afternoon, live music will be provided by The Oompah Boys. Then Left On Tenth will perform at 6pm, playing music that manifests itself into a variety of genres, from funky grooves and hard-driving rock to reggae-inspired tunes and slower ballads. At 8pm, Jay Si Proof will take the stage with their philosophical indie funk vision.
The family friendly event will also include water-pong and corn-hole tournaments, a costume contest, and activities for the kids.
