It’s time to dust off your lederhosen as Steam Whistle Brewing brings their own Oktoberfest celebrations to the Imperial in Vancouver on September 20th. Enjoy music from The Rheinlander Oom-pah Band, entertainment by the AVC Edelweiss Dancers from the Austria Vancouver Club in Richmond, food by Bestie, and plenty of beer.

Tickets Tickets are $15 in advance online or $20 at the door. Each ticket comes with a souvenir 1/2 litre ceramic stein to cheer this renowned beer festival. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes.

SteamWhistleOktoberfestVancouver“Vancouver is recognized for its festivals, so we knew after our staff trip to Munich for the world famous Oktoberfest, that if we were going to share the true festival experience with our West Coast friends – we had to do it right,” explains James Foran of Steam Whistle Brewing.

“This is our 2nd year celebrating Oktoberfest in Vancouver and we’re focused on bringing to life the camaraderie, food, folk culture, fun, traditional costumes and beer that Germany is renowned for. We’re inviting craft beer lovers to join in Steam Whistle’s take on this beer celebration.”

Bars across BC will also serve Steam Whistle Pilsner in the limited edition 1/2 litre Oktoberfest ceramic stein through October, while quantities last. Some will even offer a stein re-fill station, ask servers for details.

Oktoberfest Facts: Each year in Munich, Germany, festival goers consume over 7 million litres of beer, 500,000 roast chickens, 240,000 sausages, 70,000 pork knuckles, and a gazillion doughy pretzels! In honour of these customary foods, Steam Whistle has Oktoberfest inspired recipes for Schnitzel and potato salad.

Steam Whistle is an independent brewery housed in Toronto’s historic John St. Roundhouse, which is actually a dead ringer for the Yaletown Roundhouse in Vancouver. A 2012 Gold Medal winner at the Canadian Brewing Awards, their refreshing Pilsner is crafted with traditional European brewing methods and only four, natural (GMO-free) ingredients under the watchful eye of their Czech Brewmaster.
