Ballard breweries to host 4th annual Oktoberfest this weekend

Tomorrow, Ballard will feel a bit more Bavarian than Nordic, with Oktoberfest celebrations taking over four local breweries.

Reuben’s, Stoup, Lucky Envelope and Populuxe will host the Oktoberfest crawl, which will kick off with a traveling oompah band at Reuben’s at 1pm. The crawl will then move to Stoup at 2pm, Lucky Envelope at 3pm, and Populuxe at 4pm. The celebration is sponsored by Verity Credit Union, which will be passing out free giveaways throughout the day.

The breweries have each created special Oktoberfest brews, with limited-edition 0.5 liter commemorative steins or boots, available for purchase ($6 empty or $10 filled). Reuben’s Brews has made a Festbier, Märzen, Kölsch and Altbier; Stoup Brewing has a special Dunkelweizen, Centennial Fresh Hop, German Pilsner, Bavarian Hefeweizen and Berliner Weiss; Lucky Envelope Brewing has made an Oktoberfest Vienna Lager and Rauchbier; and Populuxe Brewing will be serving their Populuxe Oktoberfest Vienna Lager and Septemberfest ISA.

Why is Oktoberfest being celebrated in September?

Oktoberfest is a festival that celebrates the start of October and typically starts 16 days before the first Sunday in October. Places that aren’t Germany don’t do 16 day festivals and usually elect to have them coincide with the start of the festival or during the festival.

Germany.

Around here you’ll need a condom and a lawyer and as foreplay, a willingness to listen to college-educated women talk about their oppression for a week.

I went to Oktoberfest last year. My wife and daughters refused to wear Dirndls out of concern over cultural appropriation. Then when you get there, you realize nobody in Europe has ever even heard those words and they laugh out loud (with shakes of the head over what will Americans get worked up about next) when you explain it. Then again, the Germans have been celebrating the fetish of dressing up as cowboys and Indians for decades.

@ B, S + B: how much did you pay for your new Beamer, and how much does it cost to keep it on the road? What a dink.

Who cares – It is obvious it is being messed with and so there is no point in using it. The way it is done is by voting repeatedly from different IP addresses. As usual some snide d-bag ruins it for everyone else..

For the record, no. But don’t let that stop you. Please carry on with whatever it is you’re doing. Clearly you’re getting something out of it. Far be it for me to judge.

There is going to be ceremony to add more bronze leaves of remembrance for homeless people who have died on the streets of Seattle at the Ballard Commons Park. You can donate to this worthy cause if you’d like to. Maybe the people that run this blog can post something about it. Sadly I would imagine they’re will be lots more names to add in the future.

well that’s what happens when you shoot up all day, hang out with the “president”, and refuse services…

what else can you do besides offer services? if they decline (and mostly they do) what else can anyone do?

of course not, but services still need to be accepted – there is nothing else that can be done except to offer services. unfortunately we can’t involuntarily commit people that need to be helped – junkie or otherwise.

You can browbeat your neighbors by calling them “Nazis” and force them pay higher taxes. That’s what we do here.

They should engrave the dollar value of things each of them stole on their leaves. Also how many needles they dropped on the ground. Some of these people would need a whole tree.

Yep. Here in Seattle we let the junkies take over parks and leave monuments for them! You can’t make this sh*t up.

Kudos to Stoup for brewing an actual Festbier rather than the anachronistic Märzen
