On Sunday, September 29 from 5:00- 8:00 PM, Pike Brewing Company will host PIKETOBERFEST a Beer, Sausage, and Charcuterie Festival.
Piketoberfest is a local harvest festival featuring German styles beer from Pike and Reuben's Brews in Seattle, and Alpine Brewery from Oroville, Washington along with genuine Bavarian Oktoberfest Märzen from Brauerei Aying, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, Benediktner Weissbier, Heinrich Reissdorf Kölsch, and Köstritze Schwarzbier, all from Bavaria along with Bitburger Pils from the Rhineland.
Guests will be able to compare local craft spirits like recently opened Copperworks Distillery vodka and gin; liqueurs from Sidetrack Distillery in Kent, WA., and Seattle's, BroVo Spirts, with German liqueurs like Kammer Obstler, Schönauer Apfel, Echte Kroatzbeere Blackberry, Schladerer Williams-Birne, Helbing Kümmel, and Stroh Jagertee. Other German schnapps include Verpoorten Advocaat, Der Lachs Original Danzinger Goldwasser, and Underberg Bitters. Though beer comes to mind at Octoberfest, Germany celebrates the harvest season with some of the World's greatest wines. Piketoberfest proudly presents an opportunity to compare the classic wines of Germany with fantastic local wines of similar style.
With the participation of Uli's Sausage, Bavarian Meats, Salumi, La Quercia Cured Meats, Field Roast, Tom Douglas' Bravehorse, Brendan McGill's soon to open, Altstadt, Pike Brewing Company, Britt's Pike Place Market Pickles, Firefly Foods, Woodring's Northwest, and cheeses from Willapa Hills, Mt. Townsend Creamery, and Mountain Lodge Farms. Other vendors will be announced soon.
There will be an abundance of extraordinary foods to sample, but it is important to remember that not all people are so fortunate to be able to enjoy this bounty of the season! For this reason, we are teaming up with The Pike Place Market Foundation to make Piketoberfest an annual benefit to support their efforts in providing medical services, low income housing, child care and other social services to people in need. The Pike Place Market neighborhood is rated as one of the country's most livable and diverse, to a large part because of the work of The Market Foundation.
Join the band, The Collaborative Works Trio, in toasting Piketoberfest with beer drinking songs and more. Prosit!
Munich's famed Oktoberfest is the "mother of all festivals." It is an annual event that just last year brought in more than six million guests from all over the world. Originally a royal wedding party, Oktoberfest has become a grand county fair with rides, exhibits, and of course beer pavilions (tents) at its heart. Tourists too often have the idea that the Oktoberfest experience is all about over consuming beer while dancing on the table to the beat of an "oompah" band, but there is another, gentler Oktoberfest that most people, even if they live in Munich don't know about. Each year, the mayor, public officials, media stars, brewers, pavilion owners, and a few lucky guests from out of town, are invited to private rooms in one of the 14 giant tents where they dine like the royalty the festival was originally created for. Many dress in medieval costumes and compete in a crossbow shoot. Everyone celebrates with the best quality local beer, wine, schnapps and food reflective of the harvest season. It is this, the lesser known Oktoberfest that Pike has in mind as the model for PIKETOBERFEST.
