Oktoberwest

OktoberWest
was held last weekend on the West Side of Charleston. I had never been before, so I was super excited to check it out.

Oktoberwest

In its 13th year, OktoberWest presented by Encova Insurance is West Virginia’s largest traditional German Octoberfest and among the largest craft beer festivals in the state.

Oktoberwest

There were over 100 craft brews to sample, including several limited Octoberfest and German varieties. West Virginia breweries like Greenbrier Valley, Parkersburg Brewing, Big Timber Brewing, Bridge Brew Works, Sophisticated Hound, North End Tavern, Berkeley Springs and Bad Shepherd were all there.

Oktoberwest

Food vendors Shape Shop, Gil's Beef, Island Fixx, Dem 2 Bros, Ms Groovy's Kitchen, and Fatima's Thai Rolled Ice cream were all available - plus all the restaurants located in the Elk City area.

Bands Tropidelic and Here Come The Mummies were both so good.

Plus games like stein holding, beer belly, keg rolling, sausage toss, and best traditional dress contests. All funds raised from OktoberWest go directly back into Charleston’s West Side for programs, public art, and other community and economic revitalization projects. I was excited to volunteer for the event and provide lots of folks with their drinking cup. Have you been?
