Believe it or not, Washington, DC is host to some of the best Oktoberfest celebrations in the U.S! Kate Gibbs, media relations manager at Destination DC, says that Washington, DC is home away from home for many Germans due to the German embassy there as well as the Goethe Institute.
One must-see celebration Gibbs recommends is District Oktoberfest, Sept. 20-21, 2014. This bar crawl takes place in the heart of downtown DC at the museum- and restaurant-packed Penn Quarter. Participants can visit six-plus bars and enjoy a 12-ounce stein of premium Oktoberfest beer at each stop.
Gibbs also recommends Oktoberfest at Biergartenhaus on Sept. 20, 2014. Biergartenhaus is a Munich-style beer hall in the H Street neighborhood servicing 16-plus German beers. They tap a special keg just for Oktoberfest, Gibbs says.
For the “best” Oktoberfest, Gibbs recommends heading to Das Best Oktoberfest on Sept. 27, 2914. Visitors will be able to sample 150-plus beers, wines and schnapps at the DC Armory. Eat sausages and pretzels or take part in a beer belly competition!
