New Bohemia Oktoberfest
As a European beer hall, New Bohemia brings Oktoberfest's yearly ritual of beer and bratwurst to Minneapolis. Spilling out into their parking garage, New Bohemia invites 10 breweries to set up stalls and dispense endless pours of their wares, with participants including Goose Island, Third Street Brewhouse, and Brooklyn Brewery. Booths brim with German foods, including soft pretzels, roasted corn, and Bavarian desserts. Activities are a constant throughout the weekend, including keg bowling, beer hauling, and a costume contest. Attendees raise their steins to the newly voted-in Lord Mayor, who presides over the celebration with a garland of sausages atop his head. A brass band lends the distinctive sound of Oktoberfest with a twist, interpreting current chart-toppers with the oom-pah-pah of a tuba.
