Panama City Beach Oktoberfest

It’s that time of year! It’s time for great beer and brats in Panama City Beach!

This October 13-14th at Aaron Bessant Park in Pier Park, PCB Oktoberfest is on for two days of German and locally brewed beer, food, music and activities for kids and families.

Featured will be a massive 150'x50' tent decorated like the authentic Oktoberfest tent in Munich, Germany, two outdoor beer gardens and a VIP section under the tent.

Get ready for great German food! Pair your beer with brats, either famous or smoked, meterwurst, hot dogs (with or without sauerkraut).

Plus, nothing is better with your new and old favorite beer than giant pretzels with beer-infused cheese. Come out for good eats including other traditional Oktoberfest fare.

 

 

German BeerGerman Beer

The Hofbrauhaus in Munich (or Munchen as they have it in Germany) is the 500 hundred-year-old beer hall that attracts locals and visitors from around the world every single day of the year. It’s also home to one of the biggest and oldest Oktoberfests in Germany.

Hofbrau is brewed in Munich and follows the Bavarian brewing regulation for purity which has been in effect since 1516! At the PCB Oktoberfest, authentic Hofbrauhaus Munchen beer will be served.

To round out the German beer selections at this year’s Oktoberfest is the Erdinger Weissbrau, a 130-year-old wheat beer brewed exclusively in Erding, Germany and exported around the world. If you haven’t yet tasted this beer, try it at PCB Oktoberfest 2017!
