Prost! Celebrate Beer At Maryland Brewers’ Oktoberfest

Mention the word “Oktoberfest” to Americans, and they may picture many things: the raucous festivals in Germany in late September and early October, German-themed ethnic festivals in America with lederhosen and “oom-pah bands” playing polkas, or even just harvest festivals in areas settled by Germanic immigrants. But one thing usually is common to all of these: beer, and lots of it.

In central Maryland, Oktoberfest has become synonymous with the annual beer festival, now in its tenth year, held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, this year on October 8th.
