Tapping into Twain - Oktoberfest 2009!

Our 2nd annual Oktoberfest is coming up next week! Last year's event sold out at 302 tickets and we are determined to make this year bigger and better! We have more brews, more food and great music lined up for the evening!

Tickets are $35 in advance by calling 860.280.3154. For designated drivers, those who want to come and enjoy the food and music but will not be drinking, we have a $15 ticket. If you procrastinate and decide to take your chances at the door, tickets are $45.


The Hartford Better Beer Co. will be pouring their Arch Amber Ale, which is named after the Soldiers and Sailors Arch in downtown Hartford; Arch IPA which is new this week; and Praying Mantis Porter, our state insect!

ROGO Distributors is bringing Otter Creek, Saranac Pale Ale and Saranac Pumpkin Ale, Ubu Ale and Ubu IPA.

Franklin Distributors will be on site with some Belgian beers that they say most people haven't tried; a couple of Oktoberfests and LOTS and LOTS of Magic Hat! Magic Hat #9, Magic Hat Circus Boy, Magic Hat Roxy Rolles and Magic Hat Odd Notion, a Belgian chocolate stout.
