At 8:30 pm, Franconia Brewing Company will be doing a traditional keg tapping ceremony at the Old Monk. Franconia’s recently released Oktoberfest is resting inside a 200-year-old wooden German cask, and a tap will be hammered into the keg and poured into steins. Prost!
The steins are $15 filled with beer. Then there is a stein holding competition, of course. The winner gets a $50 gift card, and 2nd place gets $25. German food will be served, including warm baked pretzels, wurst of all kinds, and a pastrami reuben. Old Monk opens at 3 pm.
