Oktoberfest: Find the German beers in New York City

Try a specially created Okotberfest brew, 508 Oktoberfest Marzen, paired with a wild boar sausage, at 508 Gastro Brewery.

Didn’t make it to Munich to toast Oktoberfest in traditional style?  No
worries: Here are a few great local venues serving up German specials to
extend the celebration through October. Prost! (That’s ‘Cheers!’ in
German!) 

Columbus Tavern
Columbus Tavern is
getting into the Oktoberfest spirit not with sauerkraut or schnitzel,
but with a specialty cocktail called the Orange Autumn. The drink, $12,
is made with Grey Goose Citron, lemon thyme, ginger syrup and wheat
beer. The drink is available through the end of the month.

508 Gastro Brewery
This SoHo brewery is
serving up a series of celebratory beers brewed and served on the
premises, including a new 508 Oktoberfest Marzen, created by brewmaster
Andrew Sant’anna De Lima. It tastes best with dishes such as their goat
ragu and wild boar. Enjoy now through the end of October.

and Austrian beers.

than a dinner featuring pints and pints of beer? Enjoy a special beer
pairing dinner that features Six Point’s entire “Mad Scientist Ale”
series on Oct. 10 at Guilty Goose. The dinner is from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30
p.m. and is $75 per person. Reservations required. Can’t make it?
Luckily, other Oktoberfest specials will run until the end of the month.
