Portland’s Lents neighborhood will be getting into the Oktoberfest spirit when Zoiglhaus Brewing presents its family friendly Oktoberfest Celebration on Saturday, October 7th. Doors to the pub and its free day of festivities will open at 2:00pm.
Throughout the day there will be beer and food specials, Larry Wilder will host a yodeling contest and European Take Out Band will traditional German music. Then the kids will enjoy face painting and cookie decorating activities.
Zoiglhaus is also offering a special Zoiglhaus Beer Stein designed just for this event. The .5L stein is yours to take home and entitles you to exclusive beer discounts for the whole day. You can pre-purchase the stein online for $13.00 and this includes two beer fills by clicking here. At the door the stein will be $16.00 but it is not required to enjoy the beers inside during Oktoberfest.
Here’s the Oktoberfest schedule of events for the day.

It’s not all about beer at Oktoberfest and the traditional Lebkuchen cookies are a fantastic example. Read about the tradition by clicking here!

One cookie per person and it is on a first-come first-served basis as we only have a limited number of cookies available.
