Event Details


Besides the famous Oktoberfest, Starkbierfest (or the 5th season) is the second big beer festival in Munich and a great opportunity to have fun with your friends and wear the traditional Dirndl or Lederhosen. Historical origin of the strong beer or Bockbier lies in catholic religion: the monks were not allowed to eat during the period of fasting, and therefore brewed dark beer which was much stronger in calories and alcohol to substitute for food, "Liquid Bread" of sorts. You might be surprised to learn that although Stark means “strong” in German, the name of Starkbier doesn’t actually refer to the alcoholic punch it packs, rather the beer’s Stammwürze or "original wort". This indicates the amount of solids in the beverage. Nowadays most people don't fast anymore, but the dark beer and the beer festival has survived the times so don't miss this "little Oktoberfest".

We will offer 15 of Germany's best Strong Biers!

Live entertinment by dynamic duo "Hops und Schnaps" These guys are worth the price of admission alone!

LIVE Entertainment from Hops Und Schnapps! https://www.facebook.com/HopsUndSchnapps/

Since opening in 2009, Brauhaus has quickly become one of the most authentic German Bierhalls and Restaurants in the United States. With 30 German beers on draft and over 50 in bottle we are proud to offer more German beer than anyone else outside of Deutschland! We have been able to help bring countless new beers to the city of Philadelphia (and the country) for the first time ever. We guarantee you will never find the assortment of German beers that you can find here!
