Host an Oktoberfest Beer Tasting

Oktoberfest is here, and that means BEER! Jackie Dodd at thebeeroness.com elevates the experience to include a traditional beer tasting. From perfect sample sizes to tasty German appetizers, you’re invited on a delicious escape to Deutschland.

Pour Decisions

Give your guests a small taster glass, (these juice glasses are the perfect size and shape for beer sampling) and pour the beers one at a time. Leave the rest of the beers to chill in a tableside cooler (like this one!).

Do it Write

Give your guests a simple note sheet for recording their likes and dislikes. Download your copy of The Beeroness’s Beer Tasting Printable before your Oktoberfest beer tasting party!

Keep It Clean

Rinse glasses between beers. Provide a bottle of tap water and a small bucket for your guests to swirl some water in their glasses, and then dump, to make sure the glasses are clean between samples.

Please Have Another

Move from tasters to pints. Once all the beers have been sampled, break out the big steins and pints and let your guests fill with their favorite!

Food Sets the Mood

Not only is food a key component of any successful Oktoberfest party, but it's a must when heavy drinking is on the menu. Make sure to have plenty of snacks. Finger foods work best in a setting like this.

Deutschland Delicacies

Traditional Oktoberfest foods include: sausages, cured meats, pretzels, potato dumplings, cheese noodles, potato pancakes, sauerkraut and a spiced cheese-butter spread called Obatzda.

Serving Made Simple

To keep your wits about you, strive to make just a few dishes yourself and buy the rest. World Market has an excellent selection of pretzels, cured meats, cheese, German sausages, sauerkraut and apple onion-jam.
