The Annual Oktoberfest at Mountain Creek is almost here, and you can never be over prepared. So here’s a few of my best tips for making the most out of your Oktoberfest!

First things first. You need an outfit to wear. This may be your cream of the crop fall outfit, including your favorite jeans, a flannel and some reliable shoes. Or if you’re taking the German route, you might be scouring the internet for the more unique Drindl or Lederhosen. Depending on the quality and authenticity, these can get pretty pricey. But lucky for you, I’ve picked out a few options for all budgets.

Now onto the drinks… This Oktoberfest, Mountain Creek has taken a different approach, offering up a variety of adult beverages for those who are 21 and older. You can choose from your authentic German Biers like Hofbrau Oktoberfest and Dunkel, or you can stray from the German theme and choose a trendy and tasty Craft beer like New Belguim’s Voodoo Atomic Pumpkin, Sly Fox Oktoberfest, or Evil Genius’s Trick or Treat. If beer isn’t your thing you can go in a different direction with a Hard Ciders, Sodas or Seltzers. Of course nothing screams fall more than a Stein of Doc’s Hard Cider from the Warwick Valley Winery (link) (& it’s local too!!)

It wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest without the food.  From burgers to brats, we’ve got you covered, but if you’re looking to amp up your Oktoberfest Experience? Our new Hofbrau VIP Package might be just what you’re looking for. For just $40, you get VIP only access to Hawk’s Nest. This private party space will have an exclusive cash bar, a buffet of German snacks, and giveaways all day long by the Hofbrau Girls where they will even be raffling off a Remote Control Cooler! Who knows what prizes you might win, and who you might meet while being a VIP for the day!

Calling all Golfers

New for this year, our Oktoberfest Golf Outing at Great Gorge is the perfect way to kick off the weekend festivities. Grab breakfast, play 18-holes, and then head to the festival where your admission and Hofbrau feast entry is included.

Fun for the whole family

With the usual Oktoberfest fun comes our Center Ring games. You can enjoy a variety of our classic contests including the Wife Carrying race, stein holding, lumberjack challenge, and pie eating contests.  Take part in the fun, and start taking requests for a teammate who can make you the King of Oktoberfest!

Stein Holding

This year’s insider tip would be to pre-purchase your admission and parking tickets online for the best deal. If you know you’re going to want to eat, grab yourself a Hofbrau Feast package that includes your admission and parking to save yourself up to $20. This way you can get more beer, and have some extra spending cash; just be sure you pace yourself.

This year’s Oktoberfest is going to be a weekend that you’ll never forget! So, start planning your trip today, purchase your tickets in advance, and get ready for the Northeast’s largest Oktoberfest at Mountain Creek!
