Sept. 25-27: Guinness’ 2nd Annual Oktoberfest Celebration

Guinness Open Gate Brewery. 5001 Washington Blvd. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. 

Since the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Halethorpe reopened to the public a few months back, its lush lawn has become a favorite spot for sipping craft drafts while maintaining a safe distance. And this weekend, the team is ringing in Oktoberfest the best way they know how—by bringing back some of its most festive beers. Stop by the second-annual Oktoberfest celebration to down drafts of the aptly named German festival beer, Festbier, as well as Guinness’ Dunkel Lager made with all German malts and hops. If you’d prefer to celebrate at home, both varieties will be available in cans for purchase on site or curbside pickup.
