The third annual Fall Beer Festival takes place Oct. 19-20. The first event during the two-day festival kicks off this Friday with the All American Craft Beer Tasting sponsored by Samuel Adams, from 7-10 p.m. in The Grand Events Center. Guests will have the opportunity to sample over 120 craft beer selections and enjoy chef-inspired appetizers while listening to live music and mingling with some of America’s hottest award-winning brew masters.
Additionally, each guest will receive a commemorative glass as a souvenir. Tickets to the event can be purchased individually for $50 (plus sales and entertainment taxes.) Rounding out the second day, guests can enjoy a traditional Oktoberfest Pool Party, sponsored by Paulaner, at The Tank, the property’s award-winning pool and shark aquarium, this Saturday from 3-9 p.m. Admission is free and beer enthusiasts can sample over 150 American crafts available for purchase while listening to a mix of both current and traditional German music.
Guests interested in both events can receive discounted food and beer tickets for Saturday’s Oktoberfest Pool Party with paid admission to Friday’s All American Craft Beer Tasting. The Paulaner Biergarten (beer garden), located directly outside the hotel on Fremont Street, will also have events running Thursday through Sunday.
The Biergarten, wrapped in white fencing, will feature two Paulaner draft beers on tap, Oktoberfest and Hefeweizen, sexy beer maidens and select food options. Paulaner has been the original Oktoberfest beer company since 1654, and has continued every year since as the host brewery of the Munich, Germany Oktoberfest.
