Like I said in the Part 1 installment of my Cool News For Brews here, the worldwide Oktoberfest celebration is taking place and Atlanta’s version should be pretty damn nuts! If you want to indulge in an authentic experience, my peoples over at Der Biergarten are definitely getting it oompahppin’ as they kick it off at noon on September 17th through the 18th! Heck, even their next door neighbor—the upscale sports bar, STATS—is getting in on the action. Collectively, they are going to next level indoors and outdoors with the décor, live bands, beer boots, German-themed grub, and, of course, football! The Luckie Marrietta District will never be the same.
If I may add, Der Biergarten was the first beer-themed establishment I featured on this website almost a year ago exactly! (Look for my invite to celebrate this site’s 1st anniversary in a couple weeks at Der Biergarten on the 30th of September. It will be MAJOR so stay tuned!) Anyway, when the post went up, we collectively launched this video, the making of the killer mural they had done by talented artist Alexi Torres Alonso. This time lapsed clip coupled with the spaced-out “Peace To Brother Elvin” track produced by my brother Rashad Suede, the results were killer! See for yourself:
Below is the official info on this weekend's festivities sent direct from the source. Maybe I will see you at Der Biergarten or STATS on Saturday? I hope so!
Atlanta’s Premier German Beer Garden Kicks Off Festivities September 17-18
Oktoberfest takes over the Luckie Marietta District this fall as Der Biergarten and STATS team up for the ultimate celebration of Germany’s famed beer festival. The restaurants will transform into a Munich-inspired mecca you’ll have to see to believe with indoor restaurant space and outdoor patios styled into a progressive party - each room offering a different German draft beer and themed with authentic décor and team t-shirts. Live bands will add to the festive atmosphere, and reusable beer boots will be available for purchase. Guests can bring back their boots for special pricing on refills during the entire Oktoberfest season, which kicks off September 17 and continues through October 30.
Der Biergarten will also showcase classic German cuisine – including brats, wursts, strudels, pretzels and mustards – and will debut its new rotisserie for fresh, authentic roasted meat.
