HAUSFEST: 4th Annual Oktoberfest in the Highlands

October 7 @ 11:00 am - 10:00 pm CDT

O’Zapft is!🍻
Let’s face it. The heat is insane, and it looks like it ain’t lettin’ up anytime soon. So this year, we’re pushing back the festivities to early October so we can party in (hopefully) cooler weather and feel a little more festive in our traditional lederhosen and dirndls. It’ll be a full house of friends, family, live music, brews, food, and weenie dogs a-plenty, plus the return of our collectible stein – DAS MUG! As always, Oktoberfest attire is encouraged for those looking to put in the extra effort. And the best part? NO TICKET IS NEEDED!
🛍 Small Business Artisan Market – 11am-5pm
Shop from over 20 vendors in our back parking lot and support local!
🍻 German-style brews on tap, and the return of Das Mug!
Enjoy a taste of the Deutschland with our seasonal favorites, including crowd-favorite Vektorbräu German-style Märzen, Schützenkönig German-style Leichtbier, Mountain Child German-style Pilsner, and Moonsmoke Lichtenhainer-style Tart Smoked Lager. Get your first pour in Das Mug (our limited 0.5L glass stein of frothy goodness) for just $20 and keep the stein. (Supplies limited, so get here early!)
It’s TX/OU weekend! We’ll have the game on the TV’s (w/ sound on inside the taproom) so you won’t miss a play.
Bites and Brats!
Wunderbar! The Wurstock returns! This fan favorite is our version of the corndog, but with bratwurst! We’ll also be offering a limited menu of our stone deck, sourdough pizzas during the party.
Weenie Dogs!
We will once again feature our annual Weenie Parade (with The Dachshund Lovers of Texas Rescue) starting around 3:00pm. Any attendees that own a dachshund are welcome to feature their pups in the parade too! And of course there’s a prize for best-dressed pup.
Live Music in the Biergarten!
Crowd favorite the Oom-pah Daddies will be performing their style of party polka and Balkan rock from 6-9pm in the biergarten outdoor patio.
Games and Feats of Strength!
Stein Hoisting Contest – Arm straight out, elbow locked, don’t spill a drip. See if you can last the longest! There will be both a men’s and women’s division, with only 12 spots for each contest. Sign up starts at 5pm, and the contests will begin around 7pm.
Party ends at 10pm
As in years past, we’re spreading out the party to be primarily outdoors, and are investing in extra seating options outside under our shaded beer tent. Beer stations will be located out back as well.
The Children’s Half Pint play area will be open until 5pm, then will close to make room for our entertainment. Children are welcome to attend, but please keep an eye on them. The Kiddie Curfew will be in effect starting at 8pm. Leashed pups are also welcome outside (no dogs inside as per city health code.)
We will not be offering our normal takeout for the day. We thank you for your understanding.
Parking in the Lakeridge shopping center will be limited, so we highly suggest a ride share such as Uber or Lyft, or parking in the neighborhood and walking a bit. Needless to say, please be courteous to our neighbors and respect our ‘hood.
