Oktoberfest 2009 Update

We've had a fantastic Oktoberfest at Shultzy's, and it's not quite over yet.

We'll wrap things up this Friday night with our Last Gulp of Oktoberfest Party with beer specials, food specials, and fun for everyone. Don't miss it!

Last year, we had 11 different Oktoberfest beers at Shultzy's and thought that was a pretty impressive achievement. Well, that was nothing compared with Oktoberfest 2009. We've had 20 different Oktoberfest beers on tap already.

Here's the list of Oktoberfest beers served at Shultzy's in 2009.
  • Alpine (Oroville, WA)
  • Ayinger (Germany)
  • Bayern (Missoula, MT)
  • Beck's (Germany)
  • Chuckanut Oktoberfest (Bellingham, WA)
  • Dundee (Rochester, NY)
  • Hacker-Pschorr (Munich, Germany)
  • HB Munich (Munich, Germany)
  • K√∂stritzer (Germany)
  • Leavenworth (Leavenworth, WA)
  • Left Hand (Longmont, CO)
  • Leinenkugel (Chippewa Falls, WI)
  • Paulaner (Munich, Germany)
  • Rogue (Newport, OR)
  • Sam Adams (Boston, MA)
  • Snoqualmie (Snoqualmie, WA)
  • Spaten (Munich, Germany)
  • Victory (Downington, PA)
  • Warsteiner (Germany)
  • Weihenstephan (Suburban Munich, Germany)
Not only did we serve a wide variety of beers, we served a lot of volume, too. It was great that we managed to get 10 kegs (over 500 liters) of the Left Hand Oktoberfest that we participated in brewing back in June, but it went so fast that we wish we'd had more.

2009 was also the inaugural year for the Shultzy's OktoBEERfest Liter Club, where we recognized customers who drank at least one liter of 12 different beers during our extended 42-day celebration. Here's the list of winners as of October 23rd:

Christopher O'Neill, Kevin Wierman, Steve Bunn, Rohan Singh, Brad Ohman, Travis White, Nicholas Lederer, Samson Lim, Kris Buitrago, Ryan Morlen, Kristian Anderson, Thoren McDole, Rodney "Chip" Swarlz II, and Christopher Semiao.

Congratulations to all of these folks who each will receive a 1-liter German beer mug and be immortalized on the walls of Shultzy's. Your opportunity to join the club lasts until the end of Friday night's party, so there's still time.
