Roundhouse Brewery Celebrates Oktoberfest Weekend
Oktoberfest is a widely recognized fall event that celebrates German culture with music, food, and of course, beer. The Roundhouse Brewery in Brainerd kicked off their 4-day celebration today by welcoming members of the community to help tap the Oktoberfest beer.
With so many people in the Midwest having German heritage, it was a no-brainer for Roundhouse to host an Oktoberfest event. However, the weekend celebration and Roundhouse Brewery itself couldn’t have been made possible without the support from leaders in the Brainerd Lakes Area.
“Oktoberfest originally started as a wedding celebration and it has over 100-plus years evolved really just into a city and community celebration,” said Roundhouse Co-Owner Mark Lelwica. “When Roundhouse opened its doors, we were really blown away at how this community embraced us and not just the people in general, but the leadership.”
“The leadership really wanted this to happen and they were very supportive of it and so I like to call them out as the leaders, they are the ones that are driving this city forward and heading it in the right direction, we believe, and we’re a part of that and we’re really proud to be a part of that,” added Lelwica.
The Oktoberfest celebration at Roundhouse Brewery will be providing German music, food, and beer all weekend long.
