Breckenridge Oktoberfest Sept. 16-18, 2011
Brewmaster’s Dinner tickets available now, VIP packages introduced for 2011
Breckenridge Oktoberfest, set for Sept. 16-18, 2011, will this year offer new entertainment, VIP packages and a larger footprint that will allow for more space and additional beer-pouring capabilities at the growing event. In its 17th year, Breckenridge Oktoberfest brings the Alps to the Colorado Rockies with a weekend of parties, Paulaner Bier, authentic German cuisine and opportunities to view fall foliage.
The weekend kicks off Friday, Sept. 16 with the Paulaner Brewmaster’s Dinner featuring a six-course gourmet German meal that includes beer or wine paired with each course. Tickets are $75 per person and available now by emailing email@example.com; the dinner typically sells out in advance.
Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17 and 18, Breckenridge’s Main Street closes and a street party comes to life with traditional costumes, German food, Oompah and polka music, Bavarian dancers, children’s activities, a keg-tapping ceremony, 5k run and plenty of Paulaner beer served in commemorative steins manufactured and shipped from Munich, Germany. The Breckenridge Brewery will serve seasonal microbrews; Paulaner and Toasted Head will pour a selection of wines.
Breckenridge Oktoberfest VIP packages include:
- Beer steins
- Beer tickets
- hors d’ oeuvres and a private, shaded seating area with additional beer and wine pours.
