Celebrate Oktoberfest with your friends at Crooked Lane Brewing Co.

Es ist Oktober! Feiern Sie den ganzen Monat mit uns. In a more familiar language – It’s October! Celebrate with us all month long. Over the past few years Crooked Lane has thrown some seriously awesome German inspired jubilees – after all, it’s a beer thing. The health and safety of our staff and customers is of the utmost importance; as you can imagine, COVID-19 has prompted some changes. Instead of a focused event for a short time, we’re celebrating the whole month of October. This will create a safe and comfortable environment for all so we can safely celebrate.

Ok, now that the obligatory preamble is over with, let’s get to the fun stuff!

First, let’s talk about beer. There will be 7 German style beers available in October. There will also be other releases, so stay tuned! Here is an example of what’s brewing:


We do traditional styles korrekt! Only German ingredients go into this delicious amber lager, with a complex malt flavor and aroma, brilliant in color, and a crisp, dry finish. Time to grab your stein, your dirdnl or lederhosen, and get your schunkeln on! Oans, zwoa, drei, g’suffa!


There’s nothing quite like a good Kölsch. Subtle fruit character, noble German hops, light malt backbone, and crisp finish make our Kölsch-style ale exquisitely refreshing. Veedels are districts within the city of Köln, and Veedels Bräu will transport you there for biergarten bliss.


Do you Dunkel? Thirsty Pretzels is a dark, malty, refreshingly crisp Munich Dunkel that’s been lagered to perfection. One of the original European dark lagers, Dunkel’s history stretches back to the earliest styles brewed in Bavaria. You may not know the Dunkel yet, but it’s time to thirst for one!


When you love beer like we do at Crooked Lane, you really love Pilsner. Why love such a basic beer style? Because the flavor is pure and unadulterated joy- the hops, malt and yeast characters have a chance to really shine. All I Want is a German-Style pils, built with crisp German Pilsner malt, citrus-y and spicy Callista and Saphir hops, balanced carefully with just the right amount of bitterness.

Next up – we’re giving away swag, gift cards and a hands-on brewery tour for you and a guest. Get you some!
