Kildare's has put together a great afternoon of fun and to truly get into the spirit of Oktoberfest.
It starts with a ceremonial Wooden Keg of the Weihenstephan Festbier. This will be tapped at 3pm to kick off the celebrations. O’zapft is! There will also be a Weihenstephan Ode to Ale Bar Toast Competition as well as a stein hoisting competition. Also at 3pm, we will be entertained by a great band called Doppleganger (Who look remarkably like the Malarkey Brothers). They will be playing all of your German favorites from 3-6pm.
Weihenstephan Ode to Ale
Impromptu toasts from the competitors make a hilarious event as this contest of wit challenges each contestant to create yet an even more ingenious toast than the last.
Registrations start at 3pm and prizes will be judged on Originality, humor, crowd response and the love of all things beer. Think of it as free styling of the bar variety.
1st Prize - $25 Gift Card
2nd Prize - $15 Gift Card
At 6pm we will be rounding things out with the Weihenstephan Stein Hoisting Competition.
Weihenstephan Stein Hoisting Competition
Entrants will compete to hold one (1) liter stein filled to the brim with Weihenstephan and held by a straight ninety degree (90°) arm in front of entrant, parallel to the floor with elbows locked. Once entrant’s elbow bends or spills/drops the stein, or the stein touches the bar, the entrant loses the contest.
To enter, you just need to purchase on 1L stein of Weihenstephan for $15. You will get entry into the competition, you get to drink the beer as well as keeping the Glass Weihenstephan Stein.
Last year we had over 20 competitors and we will be looking for more again this year!!
