Event Watch: Sierra Nevada's Oktoberfest

Event Watch: Sierra Nevada's Oktoberfest
October is just around the corner and our gorgeous part of the state is gearing up for some amazing fall festivals! We wrote a few weeks ago about Asheville's Oktoberfest, and now we want to bring your attention to Sierra Nevada's version of the same festival, slated to take place on Saturday, October 30th, 2017. We just love having this awesome brewery and tasting room in our backyard, and this event is sure to be a blast. Read on for more information!
Where and When
The Sierra Nevada Brewery is in Mills River, NC - just around the corner from the Asheville Regional Airport. The brewery sits on its own campus, and a day there is an event in and of itself. A large restaurant and tasting room has everything you need to satisfy your hunger and thirst, and the outdoor area is perfect for family friendly games and entertainment. In anticipation of the season, Sierra Nevada has created some delicious Oktoberfest brews, and this event is the perfect time to sample them all. On Saturday, October 30th, from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM, folks will don their finest lederhosen and get down with the best of them! Music, dancing, costumes, food and drink will be the name of the game, and trust us - you don't want to miss the party!

What to Expect
While this is a beer-centered event, the German theme makes this an event for all. Traditional German food and music will be aplenty, so come ready to Polka! The Minor Mishap Marching Band, Sirius B, and Mountain Top Polka Band will dominate the stage throughout the night. A live glass blowing demonstration will awe and delight. As always, the priority of Sierra Nevada is safety - so complimentary shuttles will be running all night long from the brewery to Asheville and Hendersonville.
