Cheers to Fall with great tasting beer!
Warm pretzels, cold beer and a lot of laughs
Sponsored by the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, the event was held at Cashman Park in downtown Newburyport and featured rides for kids and free face painting. Music by the Oberlaendler Hofbrau Band accompanied the day.
Various local vendors served pulled pork, chocolate-dipped strawberries and German food such as Bratwurst and Knockwurst, while beer was of course available for a $5 donation.
Beers served included Spaten Oktoberfest, Blue Point Oktoberfest, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Goose Island Endless IPA, and our favorite, the Johnny Appleseed Hard Cider.
$10 from each Newburyport.com VIP Card purchase at Oktoberfest was also donated to the Chamber’s Beautification Program.
