The end of summer means one glorious thing: Oktoberfest is just around the corner! Days are getting shorter, weather is getting cooler and it’s time for one final festive frolick at Drake’s Flocktoberfest 2017.

On September 16th, we’re bringing you a beautifully Bavarian afternoon at Drake’s Barrel House in San Leandro. This seasonal celebration marks the return of 22oz bottles of War Pigeon Double IPA and the draft release of our annual Hausfest Festbier. Birds of a feather will flock together as we welcome Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Rescue, who will be bringing winged friends, wearing lederhosen. Birds in pants, y’all.

To sum things up, autumnal awesomeness includes:

• Draft release of our annual Hausfest Strong Lager, 8.3%
• 22oz bottle release of War Pigeon Double IPA
• Build-your-own pretzel necklace station
• DAS BOOT! We’ll have Drake’s .5L boots to sip your suds outta
• Deliciously juicy Drake’s/Smithfield Brand beer brats
• Pigeons (in pants) from Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Rescue

Your $15 pre-sale package includes:

• .5L collectable das boot
• One fill of Hausfest Lager, War Pigeon or any flagship core beer
• Smithfield beer brat with all the fixins

Entry is FREE, though package will cost $18 at the door. Family friendly event: well-behaved children and pets are allowed.
