From an email:
“Dacha Beer Garden will be kicking off Oktoberfest 2014 this coming Saturday, September 20th. Doors will open early at 11am with “Angezapft ist” — “It’s tapped!” — the cry that goes up every year when the Lord Mayor of Munich hammers a spigot into the very first keg of Oktoberfest beer.
It’s going to be a gorgeous day. We encourage folks to get there before 2pm when the crowds generally come rolling in.
Starting Saturday through the end of Oktoberfest, Dacha will be serving Weihenstephaner Oktoberfestbier and staff will be wearing full lederhosen and dirndls. We’ll be raffling off prizes, hosting some amusing contests, and serving up special beer cocktails.
Oktoberfest beer will be included on our happy hour menu (Mon-Thurs 4pm till 7pm, $5 singles and $10 for boots) until the end of October.
As always – we’ll have traditional brats, ‘kraut and pretzels – for those looking for an authentic German experience. However, we’ve also introduced new kabobs on the menu that are pretty damn delicious. Marinated beef, lamb and pork skewers served with grilled pita and a cucumber salad.”
