Oktoberfest Festival

Milwaukee Brewing Oktoberfest

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2nd &  SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3rd 

Milwaukee Brewing is excited to announce our annual Oktoberfest celebration!  This weekend event will feature several of our German beers, live music, food, and other entertainment.

COVID-19 Response

Milwaukee Brewing Co is actively monitoring the incidence of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our region. We have been asked how COVID-19 may impact upcoming events including Oktoberfest. We are following guidance from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings, including CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19.

At this time, our upcoming Oktoberfest celebration will take place as planned. However, if you are sick or feeling you are getting sick, we ask that you please stay home. Currently, older adults and persons with underlying health conditions are considered to be at increased risk of severe illness and complications from COVID-19. Examples of underlying health conditions include heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, people with weakened immune systems, and people who are pregnant. The CDC recommends that people in high-risk groups consult with their healthcare provider about attending any large gathering.

If you do choose to attend Oktoberfest, please keep in mind the CDC recommendations on how to keep yourself and others healthy:

**Avoid close contact with people who are sick**

**Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands**

**Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available**

The MKE Beer Tent

Located at Milwaukee Brewing Company - 9th Street, the big beer tent and outdoor beer garden will offer the perfect mix of tradition and party featuring fresh beer and live music! The event is completely free to enter. Beverages and food can be purchased at the bar or restaurant with cash/credit.  We will be serving several Milwaukee Brewing Company German beers, and guests are welcome to buy a drink package or beer by the glass.
