LA's Best Oktoberfest

October 03, 2016

The best Oktoberfest in LA takes place between October 21st – 23rd at Manhattan Beach. You’ll find traditional German goods – brats, schnitzel, pretzels, and more – served by beer maidens to the tune of lively sing-alongs and old-fashioned drinking songs. Purchase a three or four hour pass, which includes a glass stein and unlimited refills. Sponsors include your favorite brands, such as Anheuser-Busch, Becks, and Shock Top, as well as traditional German brands Hoegaarden, Leffe, and Spatten. In more than one way this festival is a throwback to some of the oldest Oktoberfest traditions, such as the custom of the mayor tapping the first keg by using a wooden mallet. This event is not for the kids, however, as all patrons must be 21 and up.
