King's Biergarten Oktoberfest
Though King's Biergarten describes itself as the place "where it's Oktoberfest all year round," once a year the brew haven really goes all out recreating the traditional German beer and food festival. The restaurant transforms its parking lot into a colorful 400-person bier tent decked out with bells, ribbons, and servers dressed in lederhosen who shoulder drinks throughout the rows of beer hall-style benches and tables. Aside from sipping golden suds, crowds can also help themselves to a variety of traditional Oktoberfest foods. Bands will play live sets throughout the fest as attendees try their hand at challenging each other with the Bavarian strongman competition, festival jousting, and much more. VIP ticket-holders will be able to camp out inside the restaurant, where they can take advantage of three-hour table reservations.
The three-day event will kick off on Friday, September 26, when local politicians including Pearland Mayor Tom Reed and Friendswood Mayor Keving Holland will lead the ceremonial 100-year-old wooden keg tapping. From there on out, the German brews will flow for the remainder of the weekend, with attendees trading in beer tickets for half-liters of Hofbrau Oktoberfest, Hofbrau Dunkel, Hofbrau Hefeweizen, Stiegl Radler, and Staropramen Lager.
