You don't have to go to Munich to have authentic German beers in steins!
Prepare to have your taste buds thank you for this Authentic Oktoberfest selection.
Once you arrive, purchase your bier tickets and stein (optional) at the big bier ticket tents inside the Festhalle. Then head over to the Oktoberfest NW bars, grab your authentic bier and prost your neighbors!
Feeling extra festive? Good, us too! You'll have the option to purchase authentic Munich-style steins in either 1/2 liter or 1 liter sizes. Sold only at the event during the festival and while supplies last!

3) Hofbrau Oktoberfest - Crisp, Full Flavor Bold Lager.

5) Paulaner Oktoberfest - Amber beer style developed to celebrate the original Oktoberfest over 200 years ago.
6) Warsteiner Dunkel - Malty & Smooth Lager.
7) Seattle Cider Company - The golden orange glow of this unique unfiltered cider lends way to notes of lilac, blood orange and green apple on the nose. Dry and pleasantly acidic.

can i bring my own Stein?
While we think our Official Oktoberfest Northwest steins are pretty sweet, guests are allowed to bring their own steins into the event. However, bar staff cannot pour directly into steins brought into the event. So, if you buy a beer they will give you a cup of beer back, that you can then pour into your stein. This includes steins from previous years sold at Oktoberfest NW. Only this year's steins will receive direct pours into them. Prost!
Be Smart - Don't Drink & Drive!
Did you get designated as the driver in your group? Thank you for being responsible! You can also sign up at the Root Bier Garden at Oktoberfest Northwest to receive free soda, water and drip coffee, if you participate in the Designated Drivers program.
There will be a Transportation Tent near the Blue Gate at Oktoberfest Northwest where drivers can pick you up at the event after you have arranged for a taxi or another car service like Uber or Lyft for pick-up on your own. More details HERE.
