The Buzz: Harpoon’s 22nd Annual Octoberfest

30 Sep

In the Boston-area and looking for something to do this weekend? Check out the 22nd Annual Harpoon Octoberfest put on by Harpoon Brewery. Here are the hours for the weekend:

  • Friday, September 30, 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm (Doors close at 9:30 pm)
  • Saturday, October 1, 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm (Doors close at 7:30 pm)
Admission is $20 and includes a souvenir plastic pint glass and a drink ticket.
Here is a little bit about what you can expect:
  • A festival of beer, music, and Fall in New England at the Harpoon Brewery
  • A wide selection of fresh Harpoon beer including IPA and UFO Hefeweizen
  • Plenty of German food sold by a local guest restaurant
  • The best Chicken Dancing this side of the Alps and the famous keg bowling game
  • Three stages of music including New England’s premiere German Oompa bands
  • Come celebrate the original New England-style Octoberfest
(All from the Harpoon Brewery website) 
I’m going to the Friday night session. (The last Saturday session I went to, I got there too late and ended up waiting in line for over an hour and a half before I decided to just ditch out and head into town instead.)
Harpoon puts on several of these festivals a year and they are always a good time!
Are you going to the Harpoon festival this weekend?
