Shultzy's Oktoberfest Update

Fun and Frivolity at last year's Oktoberfest bash.
Don't miss the 2009 party this Saturday, October 3rd.

Saturday is Shultzy's Grand Oktoberfest party, and we hope all our friends will be able to be here, have a beer, and share a toast to the coming of Autumn.  With the Huskies at noon, Sounders at 4PM and the party at 7pm, Saturday should be a fun and exciting day.  We'll have German music, leiderhosen and dirndls, Bratwurst, HOP Italians (spicy Italian sausage with Cascade hops), and BEER, BEER, BEER!  We're especially proud to have a special guest, Ro Guenzel, head brewer at Left Hand Brewing in Longmont, CO.  We went down to Colorado back in June and Ro allowed us to help brew the Left Hand Oktoberfest you'll be enjoying Saturday night (along with Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, and HB Munich, too!).

Party starts at 7pm.
Ceremonial keg tapping is at 8pm.

The inaugural edition of Shultzy's OKTO-beerfest has been a popular success.  We've run 11 different Oktoberfest beers already (matching last year's count) and we'll likely be on beer #14 or #15 by this weekend.

Here's what we've had on tap so far:
Bayern (Missoula, MT), Chuckanut (Bellingham, WA), Hacker-Pschorr (Munich, Germany), HB Munich (Munich, Germany), Kostritzer (Germany), Left Hand (Longmont, CO), Leinenkugel (Chippewa Falls, WI),
Paulaner (Munich, Germany), Spaten (Munich, Germany), Victory (Downington, PA), and Warsteiner (Germany).

Most of the time, we're offering a Munich Oktoberfest, a German Oktoberfest, and a US Oktoberfest on tap, giving you three choices for your Oktoberfest celebration.  We also have our new program where you get a free 1L German beer mug if you drink a liter of 12 different Oktoberfest beers here between September 19th and October 30th (we extend Oktoberfest all the way to Halloween at Shultzy's).  For those of you already involved, the Ayinger keg is only 30L, so you'll need to watch our Twitter feed ( to make sure you get some when it comes online.  If it goes fast, we'll try to get another one, but we can't guarantee that we'll be able to.

Coming up:
Alpine (Oroville, WA), Ayinger (Germany), Leavenworth (Leavenworth, WA), Snoqualmie (Snoqualmie, WA), Weinstephan (Suburban Munich, Germany), and hopefully a few more if time allows.
