Held in Munich, Germany, Oktoberfest is an international celebration of beer that has led to similar festivities in other cities. In Rehoboth Beach, Thompson Island Brewing Company’s guests can raise a stein from Friday through Sunday, Sept. 17-19.
“We’re so excited for guests to try our special Oktoberfest-style lager,” said Brewmaster Jimmy Valm. “It’s a crisp Marzen with a clean hop finish. It pairs perfectly with the special Oktoberfest menu that Executive Chef Lou Ortiz has prepared.”
Dishes will include ThompsonFest bratwurst with sauerkraut and beer mustard on a hoagie roll; mushroom-and-goat cheese strudel with arugula salad; Obatzda cheese spread with a pretzel and herb-onion slaw; a Bavarian pretzel with beer cheese and beer mustard; and apple strudel cheesecake with shortbread crust, cinnamon-vanilla bean cheesecake, apple mousse and apple strudel ganache.
Guests can purchase the Oktoberfest beer in a signature stein. The price is $8, and the steins are limited to one per person while supplies last.
