Join us as we celebrate the Heurich family's German heritage for our annual Oktoberfest celebration! We're partnering once again with the DC Brewers Guild to bring you a one-of-a-kind Oktoberfest experience. Local beers, from all nine Guild members listed below, will be on tap in honor of DC's most successful brewmaster, Christian Heurich (1842-1945). Castle Garden transforms into a biergarten as we serve beers, brats, pretzels, kraut and pickles all afternoon. The museum will be open for self-guided tours from 1-2 pm. Tickets are all-inclusive. Additional information to come. PROST!
NEW THIS YEAR! VIP Tickets: Kick off Oktoberfest by drinking Heurich's Lager in the Brewmaster's Castle! Exclusive access to the museum begins at noon for a Heurich's Lager tasting hour.
