Ayinger vs Occidental Brewing Oktoberfest at Steinhaus

It’s Old World versus New World as Ayinger Brewery from Germany takes on Occidental Brewing from North Portland at this friendly Oktoberfest celebration this Saturday, October 6th from 3-8pm at the Steinhaus. Not only will there be delicious beers but it’s your chance to discover one of outer southeast Portland’s hidden beer gems in the Steinhaus (from the owners of Roscoe’s), where German beer culture meets old school PDX dive bar culture.

Merchant Du Vin is celebrating Ayinger with the following beers on tap Ayinger Oktober Fest-Marzen, brauweisse, Celebrator, and either the Bavarian Pils.
