Beer lovers unite! Become America’s “Stein Hoister of the Year” and win a trip to the Samuel Adams Brewery in Boston. Competitors will be challenged with the mission of holding a one-liter stein of Sam Adam’s without bending their elbow or spilling. The event features the Samuel Adams Hops Slide, corn hole, costume contests and much more. Wear your finest lederhosen and dirndl and join StarEvents and Sam Adams at Rocktober Beerfest. Stein hoisting competitors can stop by the Samuel Adams tent Friday from 5-10P to hoist their steins! Championships will occur at 7P on Sunday.
Rocktober Beerfest embraces traditional theme of an authentic German Oktoberfest.
Our music lineup is TBD. It’ll be posted as soon as we know!
