Beer Sessions Radio™, the Good Beer Seal and Food Karma Projects are pleased to present a new annual event, Yonkers OktoberfeAst, which will feature the best of German and NY State lager fest beers at a day-long festival taking place on Saturday, September 27th on the Yonkers waterfront. Already listed by The Weekly Pint as one of “falls best beer bashes,” OktoberfeAst will feature 50+ of the best fall offerings in Bocks, Kolsches, Pumpkin, and Fest beers served up at Van der Donck Park, which uncovered a section of the historic Saw Mill River that had been buried underneath a parking lot for decades.
Key features include:
· A “sophisticated beer event” with special guest beer luminaries from the world of beer, including Matthias Neidhart from B. United, who will bring selections from the importer’s world-classic German portfolio, as well as beers using historic German recipes from B. United’s OEC
· “Grandmaster” Horst Dornbusch, associate editor of The Oxford Companion to Beer, will be onsite to discuss the German tradition in brewing
· A commemorative souvenir cup from which to sample 50+ brews, including outstanding German beers such as Schneider Weisse and Einbecker
· NY State craft beer from Rushing Duck, Secret Engine with Rocky Point Brewing, Peekskill Brewing, Barrier Brewing and Singlecut Beersmiths, among others
· Live music performances from Oompah Bands and acoustic musicians
· Beer judging (best of show, best American German-style beer, best of Germany) culminating in the awarding of the Yonkers Cup
· A selection of regional food prepared by New York chefs (available for additional purchase), including grill stations and BBQ pits manned by Fleischer’s Meats, Revolving Dansk and Jimmy’s No. 43, among others
This annual event will celebrate downtown Yonkers, highlight the daylighting project in Van der Donck Park, attract visitors to the area, and benefit local non-profit groups.
