OktoBEERfest is HERE!

OktoBEERfest started at 9am and lasts for 40 days! Victory Zeltbier (exclusive), Lazy Boy "Shultztoberfest" (exclusive), Spaten, & HB Munich lead off the parade of 35 different Oktoberfest beers (more than anywhere else on the Planet!).


Travis, Bruce, and Don toast the opening of OktoBEERfest 2013 with a Victory Zeltbier, a fantastically delicious modern-style Oktoberfest Marzen that's ONLY available in Downingtown, PA (at the Victory Beer taproom) and at Shultzy's.


It wouldn't be OktoBEERfest without seeing Grant Twitchell first thing Saturday morning to enjoy the first OktoBEERfest liter and get the first check on his punch card. 12 liters gets you your own mug and your name on the OktoBEERfest 2013 plaque (the more you drink, the higher and bigger your name appears). We also have special prizes for the person who is first to get 12 different liters and the person who drinks the most different varieties over the 40 days. Recent champions, Travis and AJ White are away on vacation in Europe, so this year's competition is wide open -- it could be YOUR year.

Just ask your server or bartender for an OktoBEERfest card and you're on your way to great beers and prizes.

ALSO, SAVE THE DATE -- Saturday October 5th is our big OktoBEERfest party!

More Oktoberfest beers than ANYONE!

Shultzy's OktoBEERfest 2013 is coming into focus and will be bigger and better than ever!

Last year, we poured 29 different Oktoberfest beers in OktoBEERfest, but this year we have 34 different Oktoberfest beers ready for you to enjoy! Here are a few beer highlights...
  • Shultzy's will have Victory Beer Zeltbier, their fantastic modern-style Oktoberfest beer. Don & I tasted it from the tanks at the brewery, and you're going to love it! We'll be the ONLY place in the world outside of Downingtown, PA where you can drink this beer in 2013, so don't miss it! Of course, we'll also have Victory's Festbier, a perennial OktoBEERfest favorite
  • We have a special version of Lazy Boy Oktoberfest called Lazy Boy Shultztoberfest that we'll be pouring at Shultzy's during OktoBEERfest. Shawn Loring, Founder and Head Brewer of Lazy Boy hosted us for the day at Lazy Boy and came up with a special recipe just for us here at Shultzy's. This is another special beer you'll want to keep an eye out for.
  • Shultzy's will be the only place around where you can enjoy ALL THREE varieties of Chuckanut Oktoberfest. We'll have Chuckanut's modern-style fest beer and their Rauch (Smoked) Märzen, but we also cleverly squirreled away a couple of kegs of Chuckanut's award winning Märzen for your to enjoy and compare with the other two. Chuckanut OktoBEERfest madness!
  • We'll have new Oktoberfests to enjoy in 2013. We have SUPER-RARE Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest (Chico, CA), Weissenhohe Monk's Fest Bier (Weissenhohe, Germany), Licher Oktoberfest (Lich, Germany), Shiner Oktoberfest (Shiner, TX), Silver City Oktoberfest (Bremerton, WA), and Ninkasi Oktoberfest (Eugene, OR).
  • It looks like we may not have old favorite Left Hand Oktoberfest due to recent flooding in Colorado, but I'm optimistic that we might get some toward the end of our extended 40-day OktoBEERfest.
  • Brewery breakdown: 8 German (all 3 Munich Oktoberfests available in WA), 9 Washington, 4 Oregon, 2 California, and 1 each from Colorado, Massachusetts, Missouri, Montana, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.
That's the latest from OktoBEERfest central -- stay tuned for more OktoBEERfest news soon!

Open at 9AM Saturday for UW HUSKIES pregame OktoBEERfest fun!

Saturday, Shultzy's will be opening at 9 am, so you'll have plenty of time to meet up for a Brat and an OktoBEERfest beer (or a "Hail Mary", one of our double Bloody Marys) before the UW HUSKIES-Idaho St. football game.

Since we've got ESPN, Big-Ten Network, and about every other channel known to man, you'll be able to watch 8 different College Football games that all start at 9am PT while you get fueled up to cheer the HUSKIES on to Victory.

Speaking of VICTORY, the first day of OktoBEERfest means the debut of Victory Beer Zeltbier, Victory's modern-style Oktoberfest beer. We're the ONLY place you'll find it outside of Downingtown, PA, and it's fantastic!

So set those alarm clocks and join us at 9 am for the start of OktoBEERfest and another great UW HUSKIES football Saturday.

OktoBEERfest surprise #1: Victory Zeltbier!


Steve German and our friends at Victory Brewing have given us a very special treat this OktoBEERfest. Every year of OktoBEERfest, we've enjoyed Victory's FestBier traditional Märzen, and this year will be no exception as we'll have it once again. But, this year, we'll also have a "secret" second Oktoberfest beer from Victory.

Victory Zeltbier is a limited edition beer that is made each year for Victory's taproom in their Downingtown, PA brewery and for the Downingtown Fall Fest. It's a limited edition (only 100 kegs!) modern-style Oktoberfest beer; "Zelt" means "tent" in German and is a reference to the famed tents of Munich Oktoberfest. The beer is delicious (Don and I got to sample some on our recent trip to visit Victory), and if you're not in Downington, PA, you're not getting any!


BUT, thanks to the generosity of Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski, founders of Victory (both of whom studied brewing in Germany), Steve German, Victory's VP Sales, and all the brewers at Victory, Shultzy's is the ONLY other place in the world, you can enjoy Victory Zeltbier in 2013! Victory shared some of their precious kegs with us and we'll be enjoying them as long as they last. You won't want to miss this one!!!

Steve from Victory will also be here at our grand OktoBEERfest party on October 5th to tap a wooden keg of Zeltbier for us all to enjoy.

Prost!
