Everything You Need to Know About Celebrating Oktoberfest at Von Elrod’s

When it comes to parties, we live to do things big. Our favorite party of the year is right around the corner. That’s right! It’s Oktoberfest in Germantown. We’re celebrating with multiple events leading up to and throughout the event. Nothing brings people together like a few cold ones in our outdoor beer garden. Come grab a drink and enjoy the party! Here’s a list of everything we’re planning at our Germantown restaurant for the occasion. We’ll catch you in the beer garden!

Okto-Beer-Fest: Friday, October 4th | 5-9pm
No one said we couldn’t start celebrating Oktoberfest early, and we’re doing it the best way possible – with tons of German beer. Bring your crew to Von Elrod’s from 5pm-9pm on October 4th for Okto-Beer-Fest to sample & vote on your favorite local Oktoberfest and Märzen-style beers! You’ll be able to taste all your local favorites from Nashville Brewing Company, Bearded Iris, TailGate Brewery, Black Abbey, Little Harpeth & Jackalope!

Stein & Swine Fall Beer Garden Picnic: Saturday, October 5th | 12-6pm
You know that if we’re having a picnic, we’re going all out! With Whole Hog BBQ from Home Place Pastures along with housemade sausages, sauerkraut, & sides — there’s no way that you’ll leave this event hungry. Add in some local Oktoberfest & Märzen-style beers, and you might never want to leave.

Come dine with us on October 5th from 12:00-6:00pm for a meal you’ll be thinking about for days to come. More details here.

Rockabilly Brunch: Sunday, October 6th | 9:30am-2pm
We’re making our Sunday Brunch even better by adding live music in the beer garden for a special Rockabilly Brunch on October 6th from 9:30am-2:00pm. We know it can be hard to choose between our brunch staples like Malted Blueberry Pancakes and Chicken Fried Chicken Biscuits. At least you and your squad can all agree that ordering a Big A** Mimosas is a must for everyone. Details here.
