Umami Burger, Beer Garden & Sports Book at SLS Las Vegas will celebrate the world’s largest beer festival stateside with a month-long Oktoberfest, complete with a Tap Takeover featuring drafts from German breweries Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu and Bitburger.
Complementing the German brews will be jumbo salted Bavarian pretzels, served with spicy mustard and house beer cheddar. Those who go big with the purchase of any 25-ounce Oktoberfest draft will receive a complimentary Bavarian pretzel from Monday through Thursday during October.
Featured Deutschland drafts include: Beer Spaten Lager, a fermented Muchner lager with a premium balance of hop and flavor; Spaten Oktoberfest, the fragrant and savory gold brew of Munich’s renowned Oktoberfest; Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier, a citrus-infused, copper-colored wheat beer with an unmistakably fresh and fruity taste; and Bitburger Premium Pils, a light sparkling beer with a nutty aftertaste, rich with honey that balances sweetness and hops.
All beers featured during the Oktoberfest celebration are crafted overseas in German breweries, including Spaten-Franziskaner-Bräu and Bitburger, both with hundreds of years of brew experience to their credit. Beers will be priced at $9 for a 14-ounce draft, $15 for a 25-ounce draft and $27 for a 50-ounce souvenir yard. On Tap Takeover Tuesdays, visitors may purchase any Tap Takeover 14-ounce draft and receive the second draft for free with a limit of one per guest.
