Stammtisch Celebrates 3rd Anniversary with Maifest

Oregon’s best German bar and restaurant, Stammtisch, is celebrating its 3rd anniversary on Saturday, May 6th, by hosting Maifest (or Mayfest). Maifest is a traditional German celebration welcoming the spring season with activities like decorating a maypole in vibrant colors, drinking maibock beers, and eating copious amounts of German food.

Staying true to tradition, owner Dan Hart and the Stammtisch team have imported several special Maibock beers from Germany—which are lighter than bock beers and brewed for Maifest—for the occasion, featuring beers from renowned breweries: Hofbräu, Hacker-Pschorr, Andechs, Einbecker, and Ayinger.

Chef Graham Chaney is serving up a seasonal spring-inspired menu of traditional German dishes like flammkuchen and white asparagus salad. The bar will also mix up a batch of Maiwein, an aromotized German wine punch with woodruff and fresh berries served during Maifest.

Stammtisch’s 3rd Anniversary Maifest Celebration takes place Saturday, May 6 from 11AM until 1:30AM. There is no entry fee. Food and drink prices vary. Minors are allowed until 10PM.
