The beer will be flowing from 1:00 to 7:00 pm, with gates opening at 12:30. Admission is $10 at the gate with no charge for children 15 and under. Revelers are encouraged to bring camp chairs or blankets. No need to check the forecast: rain or shine, it will be fine. Parking is available in the Grant Ave. lot just east of the brewery with two downtown parking garages only a two-block walk away. While Mother’s usually welcomes Fido, please leave pets at home for this event.
Under the Munich-style beer tent, local legends The Garbonzos will bring the traditional oom-pah between sets on the main stage from Bryan Wilkinson, Me Like Bees, and Shawn James & the Shapeshifters.
FireLight Pizza Company, Galloway Station, and Horrmann Meat Company will be dishing out vittles for the hungry.
From a traditional Munich-style Oktoberfest Märzen lager to a hop forward American IPA, thirsty festival goers will have a heady selection of Mother’s beers both in the tasting room and at two outdoor beer stations. Beer tokens will be purchased for $5 and can be used for beer, soda, water, or festival merchandise.
