Beerhaus MGM Beer Garden & German Beer Hall Celebrations
The raising of the beer mugs, the locked-in-arms dancing to German oompha-music and the all-out celebration that is Oktoberfest is something celebrated widely outside of Germany and of course, if it’s a party, there’s one in Las Vegas.
Sin City has two places to celebrate Oktoberfest, the Bierhaus in The Park next to the T-Mobile arena and the Hofbrauhaus.
The Bierrhaus is calling its celebration “Oktoberfest in the Park” and it goes from Sept. 30-Oct. 2.
Beginning at 4 o’clock each day, the “Oktoberfest at The Park” party starts with a celebrity keg tapping followed by live music from local band The Dummkopfs (what a name for a German band, right!?).
Beers from round the world – including a limited-edition Oktoberfest brew – are served in commemorative half- or full-liter steins. Prices for each stein are:
• One liter: $15 empty/$25 filled; refills are $14
• Half-liter: $10 empty/$15 filled; refills are $7.
There is also:
• Eins. Zwei. Drei! – Games and contests throughout the evening including sledgehammer strongman competitions, stein-holding marathons and much more.
• Guten Appetite – Homemade bratwursts, German potato salad and fried apple with caramel dip.
• Noch ein Bier, bitte – Those looking to keep the good times rolling as the evening shifts into the late Las Vegas hours can head inside Beerhaus for an after-party filled with cheers, beers and live music.
“We are going to have a fun-filled Oktoberfest complete with an assortment of craft beers, festive games and lively entertainment,” said Beerhaus General Manager Tony Fisher. “
Our unique space within the beautiful landscape of The Park allows us to throw an authentic outdoor Oktoberfest celebration and we can’t wait to debut all of the great activations we have in store for our guests.”
At the Hofbrauhaus, which is a replica of the original Hofbrauhaus in Munich, Oktoberfest is a six-week celebration. It goes from Sept. 16-Oct. 31 and is what you would expect to find in a German beirhall.
It too, has celebrity keg tappings, plus music, games and all the German-style partying you associate with Oktoberfest. It does close at midnight on weekends. It’s located at the corner of Harmon and Paradise road across from the Hard Rock Cafe (4510 Paradise Road).
