2015 Oktoberfest


Oktoberfest

Saturday, October 10, 2015
4:00pm - 9:00pm 

2015 marks the sixth year of The Hotel at Auburn University’s Oktoberfest.  For the first three years, the event was held in the intimate setting of our Terrace Room and around our pool, allowing for about 150 attendees.  Two years ago we expanded the event to its current location in our north parking lot. This allowed us to grow attendance and offer a larger variety of breweries to guests. 

Each local, regional and national brewery in attendance will showcase a small selection of beers, giving attendees an opportunity to sample a variety of great brews.  Select breweries will also present one-off beers, which are brewed specifically to be served at Oktoberfest.

Returning this year is Homebrew Alley where local homebrewers are given the opportunity to showcase their craft to festival goers. Registration for Homebrew Alley is now available online

We are still in the process of planning the 2015 Oktoberfest, so check back for more updates and information!

Prost!
