Oktoberfest 2019


Surly Oktoberfest 2019 takes over the entire brewery (Beer Hall, Beer Garden, Surly Pizza Upstairs, Scheid Hall, the deck, the patio…everywhere but the roof, to be honest) on Saturday, October 12th. Think of it as the ultimate beer amusement park, no disrespect to Duff Gardens. The brewery opens at 11am and shenanigans begin at 12pm. There will be live music all day, Oktoberfest-inspired menu items from Surly’s culinary team, so. much. beer., feats of strength, a celebratory toast and cask tapping, and more. More, more, more.

If and when we hit capacity, only those who have pre-purchased an Oktoberfest “Full Munich” Package will have GUARANTEED access to the brewery for the day. This package is now sold out.


  • This event is FREE and open to the public.
  • The "Full Munich" VIP package is SOLD OUT.
  • Overflow parking will be available at CSM and UEL lots.
