Der Braumeister offers Oktoberfest celebration “to-go”


 Traditional Oktoberfest festivities may be cancelled around the world due to COVID-19, but Clevelanders can still get their festival fix. The historic German restaurant is offering Oktoberfest To-Go packages that include a traditional meal that feeds 4-6 people and beer growlers with glass steins, available to pre-order and pickup just in time for what would have been the Cleveland Oktoberfest weekend. As an added treat, the restaurant has also curated a public Oktoberfest Spotify playlist for guests to enjoy their food or beer with the traditional sounds of the festival.

The food package features a classic protein of your choice (Schnitzel, Schweinshaxe or Roasted Chicken), 5 sausages, over 4 lbs. of sides, Bienenstich (Beesting Cake), Lebkuchenherzen (gingerbread cookies) and traditional German candies. 

The beer package features 2 (64 oz.) growlers, filled with your choice of 8 exclusive Oktoberfest draft brews along with 2 half liter glass Paulaner steins. Add on an additional bottle/can variety 6 pack of Oktoberfest beer with an additional half liter mug.

“Oktoberfest is what we look forward to every year,” said Der Braumeister owner Jenn Wirtz.  “After learning the festivals would be cancelled, we wanted to make sure our customers still got the opportunity to celebrate, even if it’s just from the comfort of their own homes!”

All packages can be pre-ordered, paid and scheduled for pickup online. Pickup dates will be available from September 3 – 5, between 4 – 6 p.m. Additional information, including full food and beer list, and the link to order are available here.
