There are plenty of Oktoberfests out there (and we encourage hitting as many as possible) but this one is Das Best, or “the best” if you’ve forgotten your German definite articles. What makes it das best? How about the incredible selection of international and local beers, wines, and schnapps that come with an “all you can taste” policy for those attending? Not only that, there’s music, sausage, and, thanks to the Orioles needing the stadium for a home game, a waterfront view. That’s right, the location for Das Best has been moved to Rash Field at the Inner Harbor. We guess no one was expecting there to be hordes of Os fans downtown this late in the season. Oh, snap.
But seriously, Das Best Oktoberfest comes with everything you’d want from the traditional German celebration. They’ll have Oompah bands and polka music all day long, so you can keep your toes tapping even while on your umpteenth taste of schnapps. Come dressed in traditional German costume and receive a free beer lanyard. Or participate in the Miss Oktoberfest or the Best Beer Belly competitions, or both. But it’s not all just careless revelry. A portion of all proceeds go toward the Spirit of Hope Children’s Foundation. So at least that beer belly is helping do some good.
Das Best Oktoberfest takes place Saturday, October 11th from 12pm-6pm (12pm-2pm is VIP tickets only). The new location is Rash Field at the Inner Harbor. For more information, visit www.dasbestoktoberfest.com.
