The Biergarten is ready! It’s going to be two weekends of amazing beer, delicious food, and Bavarian music! Penn Brewery Oktoberfest takes place September 15th – 17th and 22nd – 24th.

This is the ultimate Oktoberfest experience. Expect some “old time traditions with new sounds and flavors.” Also, it’s free admission! All the fun details are here.


They will have one of their most popular beers, the Oktoberfest-style beer! It’s a “rich, copper-colored Munich-style fest beer. Malty and medium-bodied, Penn Oktoberfest features nutty, toasty, slightly roasted, and caramel characteristics with well-balanced hop bitterness.” 

Other signature drinks include Penn Pilsner, Penn Gold, Penn Dark, Pumpkin Roll Ale, Lemon Shandy, and their new Penn Cider! Liquor and wine will also be available.


The main tent has everything you need. Choose from fresh pretzels, sausages, half chicken, and pierogis.

There’s also a la carte sides – sauerkraut, hot German potato salad, chips. And of course dessert – German chocolate cake and a mini cookie table!
