Upland Brewing Company celebrates Germany’s traditional autumn beer festivals with a day of music, food, and drinks in scenic Military Park. The afternoon’s entertainment kicks off with Kaleidostars (3 p.m.) before United States Three (4:30 p.m.) delights with introspective, punk-laced pop, supporting the singsong-y delivery of frontman Vess Ruhtenberg. Self-described on their Facebook page as a “little band that sings songs about the devil and such,” Shelby County Sinners (6 p.m.) provide a seamless transition into the evening, when Cleveland celebrities The Chardon Polka Band (7:30 p.m.) take the stage. Founded by a group of musical misfits who couldn’t find a satisfying outlet in high school, the group plays traditional oompah-style polka, accompanied by occasional breakdowns into punk-rock covers of classic polkas. The bluesy stylings of the Jon Strahl Band close out the night, supported by Luke Stanley’s swirling guitar (9 p.m.).
While taking in the tunes, festivalgoers can dig into German food and swig Upland Brewing Company's Oktoberfest Lager, whose sweet bouquet and crisp finish won it a silver medal at the World Beer Cup. One-liter tankards cradle the beer in true Teutonic style, minimizing refills and providing a safe storage space for leftover sauerkraut.
Though Upland Brewing Company features discounted presale prices online for the Upland Oktoberfest, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
