Atwater

Grand Rapids, Mich – As Atwater Brewing approaches its one-year anniversary at its Grand Rapids location, the Detroit-based craft brewery kicks off celebrations with Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 9. This 21 and over event will take place at its downtown Grand Rapids location at 201 Michigan Street NW from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m.

Attendees can expect true Oktoberfest festivities with German-style food, German-style beers, and live music. They can also compete in shuffleboard and the traditional Oktoberfest “mug holding contests.” The winners will receive gift cards and Atwater swag. The first 25 people to attend will get a free mug club membership for a year.

This is an rain-or-shine event with tented outdoor areas. No advance ticket purchases are necessary, but attendees will be asked to show identification at the door.
