The beer-lover’s guide to doing Beau’s Oktoberfest

  1. Get the app & check out the map. The official app has a list of all the Beau’s beers that will be flowing, plus a list of other breweries sending kegs of their finest. Favourite the ones you most want to check out. Each of the beer tents is named after a city in Germany and features a different mix of beers on tap.
  2. Plan a safe way home. Add on a bus package or camping pass when you buy your tickets, or you can check out some local hotels and pre-arrange a cab.
  3. Arrive early. This is the one party where it’s cool to show up early. Be at the stage during opening ceremonies to taste the cask-conditioned Märzen, then beat the line-up at Craft Haus by heading straight there to see what’s pouring.
  4. Wear a watch. Did you know? Secret kegs are tapped at Craft Haus at specific times. Plus you can’t be late for class if you are coming to School of Bock!
  5. Stay hydrated and fed. Set down a solid base for your beer adventures with an early meal at restaurant row, and hit up the water station anytime you walk by one.
  6. The homebrew competition. Sample and vote for your favourites while you chat with fellow beer enthusiasts. The winning beer will be brewed by Beau’s for next year’s Oktoberfest.
  7. Easter Eggs. There are a handful of Beau’s beers that are exclusive to Oktoberfest 2018 – don’t miss ‘em! Hint: they are all in different tents.
  8. Visit the brewery. It’s open 10-6 during Oktoberfest, catch a shuttle just outside the fairgrounds. Self-guided tours, samples, and the place to buy bottles to-go.
