In contrast to many breweries of the hophead era, Utepils Brewing kicked off operations earlier this year with an emphasis on traditional, sessionable beers inspired by Europe. For this new-world-meets-classic-style facility, Oktoberfest is the perfect time to open the grounds for a weekend-long party. For three days, the spacious brewery will pour new, limited-edition Oktoberfest-style beer. There will also be games, contests, and a Deutschland food truck. As a tribute to the wedding origins of the month-long German festival, Utepils will also host a massive, nondenominational vow renewal ceremony on Saturday (11 a.m.; sign up at utepilsbrewing.com), and a public marriage party for a U.S. Army couple on leave. In addition to Receptional Oktoberfest, they’ll have their core lineup—Alt 1848 altbier, Copacetic Kölsch, and Ewald the Golden hefeweizen—flowing all weekend long. All ages.
