Oktoberfest – A Beautiful Air-Conditioned Dream

With sweltering heat like this, I thought I’d help cool you off by talking about Oktoberfest. It will be here before you know it. Just imagine it. The kids will be back in school. The Seahawks will be well into their regular season. These dog days are a distant memory and people around Seattle are complaining about what a cold, wet summer we just had. Washingtonians have such a short memory when it comes to sunshine. The grass will be green again, just in time to welcome the falling leaves. Time for Oktoberfest — cool, breezy, steely-skied Oktoberfest. What a beautiful, air conditioned dream.

The Washington Beer Commission is teaming up with the City of Enumclaw for this year’s Oktoberfest celebration. Basically, it’s the City of Enumclaw Oktoberfest with the beer garden being run by the Washington Beer Commission. The event will take place on October 9th and 10th at the Enumclaw Exposition Center. The City’s Web site says that this year’s Oktoberfest feature fun stuff like a rootbeer garden for kids, mainstage entertainment, lots of oompa music, and even live German dancers. Live dancers are always so much more entertaining than dead ones.

Of course we’ll have more informati0n about the event as it nears. Here is the current list of breweries that will be pouring this year.
