Das Best Oktoberfest
September 27, 2013
September 28, 2013
November 16, 2012
National Harbor, MD, 20745, United States

Brew season is finally here!   Das Best Oktoberfest will transform the National Harbor on the Potomac into German beer gardens on the Rheine. Join us in celebrating over 150 craft brews (and wines!) from Germany and around the world, as well as schnapps, naturally.  Just south of the District, follow the sounds of the polka bands and the scent of the schnitzel.

Three stages of live music will be staring live bands performing everything from rock, to polka, to Oompah, to German drinking songs.  If the brew spurs your competitive bone you can take part in the Biggest Beer Belly Competition, the Ms. Oktoberfest contest, the Pretzel Necklace Contest, The Homebrew Competition, or all of the above!

Taste some of the greatest microbrews from breweries around the World such as Heavy Seas, Sierra Nevada, Saranac, Erdinger,  Widmer, Kostritzer, Wurzburger, St. Pauli Girl, Magic Hat, Guinness, Weihenstephaner, and hundreds of others.  Wines and spirits include Jagermeister, Berenjager, Schmitt Sohne, Barefoot Wines and Kammer Schnapps.
