A festival of German culture, food and beer

What started as a community event put on by one of the country's smallest breweries has become one the the areas biggest events. Oktoberfest takes place in front of the Worth Brewing Tap Room in downtown Northwood. 

Family Friendly               Free Admission 

Oktoberfest

Possibly our most anticipated brew every year. This malty lager is always released on Oktoberfest and never lasts long. Brewed with German hops, malt and yeast this is an authentic Marzen that is brewed right here in Worth County.

Beer

All of our year-round and current seasonal beers will also be available in the taproom and in the beer garden 

The Marv Nissel Band

3:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Slap 'N' Tickle

7 - 10 p.m.

Music

Fest Dogs

Made right here in Northwood, these potato sausages have become a staple of Oktoberfest. The perfect complement to our Oktoberfest lager. Served on whole wheat buns.

House-made Beer Mustard

Made in our kitchen by brewer, Peter, this spicy mustard is balanced by a generous amount of Oktoberfest.

Candied Almonds

A traditional treat. Made by our brewer only for our festivals, these are no ordinary almonds. Brown sugar and our own honey make for a sweet dessert that is hard to resist.

Activities

Hammerschlagen

A classic Midwest pastime. Each player uses a 3 lb peen-hammer to drive their nail. Whoever sinks their nail first wins! This is much harder than it sounds.

Bags

One of the most popular games in the country, this game needs no introduction. 

Stein Hoisting 

Who can hold the beer up the longest? Sounds simple right? The rules are simple but that does not mean this is an easy task.

Beer Poking 

Why stick a red hot skewer into your beer? Cause it's fun. Also because it caramelizes the sugars and changes the beer. Perfect for the Baltic Porter and the Oktoberfest.
