Grimm Brothers Brewhouse is expanding its Oktoberfest to become a large community festival. For the past three years, Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, focusing on German-styled Lagers and Ales, hosted its own Oktoberfest in the brewery’s parking lot. The brewery wants to make an impact on its community and expanding the 2013 festival will increase opportunities for attendees and help further secure Loveland as a beer destination.
This year the festival will be held Friday September 20 from 3pm-9pm and Saturday September 21 from noon-9pm at Foot Lagoon Amphitheater, Civic Center Park and Library parking lot and will feature live music, entertainment for all ages, children’s amusements, food and beer.
Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, Loveland Aleworks, Verboten Brewing, Big Beaver Brewing Company and Rock Bottom Brewery are local participating craft brewers and Loveland-based distributor American Eagle is providing additional craft brews from Great Divide, Odell Brewing Company and Epic Brewing. In addition, a wide assortment of Austrian and German food vendors and artisans will be on-hand with delicious food and unique items for sale.
A portion of the proceeds from the festival will benefit Northern Colorado nonprofits Colorado Youth Outdoors and Team STABOS (Save Them All BIG or Small).
