While it may not be a “Das Boot!” a la “Beerfest,” the Fremont Oktoberfest commemorative 1-liter beer stein is no small accomplishment to chug down.

And it’ll be necessary to sample the influx of the Deutschland’s alcoholic pride.

“This year’s event features the most German beers we’ve ever had on tap at Fremont Oktoberfest in its fourteen years,” says Phil Megenhardt, creative director.

That would be 11 brews separated into two tents, West German and East German.

The West German Beer Tent will pour six beers including Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen and Weinhenstephan Hefe-Weissbier. The East German Beer Tent features five German brews on tap including Hofbräu Dunkel and Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier.

Festival drinkers can purchase the mammoth beer stein at the Tap House Grill Buxom Beer Garden, with their choice of Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen, Radeberger Pilsner, Weihenstephan Hefe-Weissbier and Veltins Pilsener, brought to you by World Class Beverage.

Fans of microbrews won’t be disappointed. They’ll have more than 80 micros to sample at the event, which runs from September 24-26. It benefits the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. Advance tickets are now on sale for The Stranger Microbrew Garden for $20 (general admission). Buy them now to get the cheaper rate.
