The Oktoberfest celebration at Reverie Brewing Company in Newtown, CT took place September 25th-27th. Reverie Brewing Company is located on Church Hill Road just off of I-84. The event offered all of our fall favorites in a safe, socially distant way.

Inside the Celebrations

Guests were welcomed to tables with a strict 2-hour time limit. Seatings were by reservation only. They enjoyed a variety of beers from IPAs to pumpkin ales, there was something for every taste. Grab-and-go patrons were also treated to a special discount of only $69 for a case of beer. The case included Weekend at BB’s, Blimp, Sourry Not Sourry, and others. 

Many of the Reverie staff even wore colorful costumes to celebrate.

While a trip to Reverie is always a treat, the extra offerings available at their annual Oktoberfest made the experience even more special.

Games and Live Entertainment

Each day, a variety of activities and games was available including card games and bingo, among others. One of the favorite games was a ‘Stein Holding Contest’.

Several live bands provided musical stylings for happy guests throughout the weekend including the Nick D’Maria Jazz Band on Friday, Bone Dry Duo, and Long River Jam Duo on Saturday, and Jake Kulak on Sunday.

A Taste of Oktoberfest

German cuisine was available throughout the three-day long celebration at Reverie Brewing Company. On the Fly Food Truck from Taproot, which usually offers a menu inspired by Southeast Asia, offered German inspired favorites Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Fare included a pork belly and red cabbage sandwich, authentic spaetzle, and bratwursts.

Given the uncertainty during these few months, it is truly comforting to be able to participate in long-standing traditions that mark the changing of the seasons. Watching the yellow leaves fall on a warm September day with a cold beer and a hot bratwurst was an ideal way to welcome autumn.
