Urban Chestnut Announces 5th Annual “Oktoberfest St. Louis”
Since 2011, Urban Chestnut has celebrated Oktoberfest St. Louis at our Midtown Brewery & Biergarten through the enjoyment of German food, German games, German music, and of course German bier - it gives us a way to bring a bit of Florian’s homeland to St. Louis. With this year’s festival being our 5th Annual, we’re going to ramp things up a bit, and really capture the convivial tradition and atmosphere of the Munich Oktoberfest.

Each year, Oktoberfest St. Louis attendance has doubled from the previous year, so we figured we’d extend the festival by a day. Stretching from Friday, September 25th through Sunday, September 27th, the 5th Annual Oktoberfest St. Louis will be UCBC’s first-ever three day festival.

Oktoberfest St. Louis 2015 will offer much of the typical German/Bavarian cuisine enjoyed at the world famous Munich Oktoberfest, most notably bratwurst, roasted chicken, and giant pretzels. Additionally, Urban Chestnut will provide festival-goers the opportunity to participate in traditional Oktoberfest games and activities, including:

-Stein Holding Competition (Masskrugstemmen)
-Finger wrestling (Fingerhackeln)
-Playground rides
-And more

A major and fundamental component of any Oktoberfest is German music. Here's the complete music schedule for Oktoberfest St. Louis 2015:

Friday (9/25)
Bolzen Beer Band - 7pm-10pm

Saturday (9/26)

But of course Oktoberfest St. Louis wouldn’t be considered an Oktoberfest without German bier! And this year’s selection will be the broadest yet with Urban Chestnut pouring four of our traditional German biers: Oachkatzlschwoaf (Annual Oktober-Festbier), Zwickel (Bavarian Lager), Schnickelfritz (Weissbier), and Dorfbier (Dunkel), along with a few other ‘UCBC surprises’. There will also be German bier offerings from St. Louis craft brewers: Schlafly Oktoberfest, The Civil Life Oktoberfest, and 4 Hands Dry-Hopped Kölsch. Just as the Munich Oktoberfest brings Munich’s breweries together, we’re proud to have our friends from Schlafly, The Civil Life, and 4 Hands join us at Oktoberfest St. Louis 2015.

Entry is free at Oktoberfest St. Louis 2015. Festival goers may buy an authentic 1 liter glass stein for $8 prior to the festival ($10 day of), and steins may be filled at the festival for $8. As is true at Munich Oktoberfest, there’s something for everyone, families are welcome, and UCBC considers Sunday afternoon “Family Day”.
