This weekend we’re happy to be bringing German Franconian casks to NYC! Traditionally Germans from the Franconia area of Bavaria, Germany, would put their ales and lagers in vertical gravity casks. In celebration of great Oktoberfest German beers, we’ll be tapping one of these kegs this afternoon (at 5 p.m.), Weissenohe Bonifacius, a Dunkel that at 5.1% ABV is a very drinkable beer for fall.
We’ll be bringing more casks to tomorrow’s beer and bratwurst fest, Oktoberfeast, at the Seaport (on 10/11, with two sessions starting at 11 a.m.). Among the beer offerings (subject to change) will include both cask and draught options:
- Secret Engine – Sticke Handwerker
- Rocky Point - Das Saftige
- Radiant Pig – Junior IPA, Gangster Duck
- Grimm – Bees with a Buzz
- Barrier – Oktoberfest
- Gun Hill – Oktoberfest, Gold
- Other Half – Veldrijden Love
- SingleCut – Oktoberfest (secret small batch), Jan Michael w/Coffee and Vanilla
- Third Rail – Bodega, Field 2
- Bridge and Tunnel – “Maspeth” 1600, Black Rye IPA
- Perennial – Hommel Bier
- Jonas Brock – Chocolate Stout, Jasmine Lager
- Mönchsambacher Unfiltered Lager
- and, of course, more Weissenohe Bonifacia

So come into the bar this afternoon and pay-as-you-go (we’ll have our famous beer sausage for the perfect peppery food-beer pairing) or join us all day tomorrow at the Seaport for great German (and German-style) cask beers!
