Oktoberfest Dinners & Beer at the Rogues' Harbor Inn

The Rogues' Harbor Inn is almost as old as Oktoberfest. The first Oktoberfest was held in Munich in 1810 and was (and still is) a celebration of all things German: beer, schnitzel, strudel, spatzel, lederhosen, beer- oh we already mentioned beer...But, beer is what the world thinks Oktoberfest is about, and we're not disagreeing. Only six breweries are invited to pour at Oktoberfest and they are the six local, Bavarian breweries- no one else. It's loyal, traditional and uber trendy, locally sourced. It's all about being in Bavaria (in October).
We're bringing the tradition of Oktoberfest to Rogues' with a sampling of  Bavarian fare complemented by one of THE six Bavarian breweries', Spaten's, Oktoberfest beer. We'll be serving giant pretzels for a starter and sauerbraten a national dish featuring brine marinated, slow cooked meat with wine and spices. It's a melt in your mouth, German style pot roast. It will be complemented by blaukraut an apple and cabbage warm slaw and mashed potatoes. Hearty fare, we like that.
We'll be celebrating now craft brewing five of our own ales as well. We're certain the powers that be in Munich would approve. It's all about being at Rogues' (in October).
Oktoberfest since 1810 and Rogues' since 1830, a match made in beer heaven.
