Capitol City Brewing Company geared up for its 18th annual Mid-Atlantic Oktoberfest celebration. On Saturday, September 30, more than 65 regional breweries and 30 local restaurants served up their best fares at this year’s Oktobefest celebration. It was a “familiennachmittag” or family afternoon like they do in Munich, Germany. Capitol City invited beer-drinkers and festivalgoers alike to dress in traditional German garb and enjoy the tastes of authentic Bavarian brews, bratwurst and brezlen – the German-style pretzel. More than 65 local breweries set up over 100 taps and shared ale and lager samples with the thousands guests from the DMV region. Notable breweries included Fairwinds, DC Brau, Hardywood, Heroic, Port City, 3 Notch’d, James River, Heritage, Atlas and Caboose. Capitol City offered samples of its featured fall beers, including the classic Oktoberfest Lager and a new signature brew, the Grumpkins & Snarks Pumpkin Ale. Festivalgoers also enjoyed Alpine music while they tasted authentic German cuisine and other American fare from various local eateries.
