Northwood Oktoberfest

Strap on your lederhosen and dirndl dresses and pump up your appetite for German-style beer, food, music and fun, because that’s exactly what you’ll get this weekend during a two-day Oktoberfest at Northwood Public House and Brewery on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 7 and 8.

Northwood’s Oktoberfest is free, family-friendly, and open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on both days. To satisfy Oktoberfest cravings, the menu features sausages, schnitzels, and pretzels—as well as a special dish known as Schweinhaxen (slow-roasted pig’s knuckle). The brewpub will serve Bavarian “fest biers” as well as seasonal favorites. There’ll be live music with polka-rock (it’s a real thing!) from Those Darn Accordians, plus tunes from Big Yellow Taxi and Nordic Spirit. There will also be face painting, balloon art, and coloring contests for the kids, as well as a strong-arm beer stein contest for the adults. The Chicken Dance? Well, that’s for everyone. Bwak!

This popular gastropub has earned its spurs as a North Bank hotspot, drawing a loyal crowd of local regulars as well as food- and beer-lovers from afar, because the fact is, Northwood is worth the trip. The establishment boasts its own, on-site microbrewery, the Little Dipper Brewing Company, which will be releasing its newest brew in honor of Oktoberfest, Oktodunkel.

Oktoberfest at Northwood

Oktoberfest at Northwood Public House and Brewery is happening on Saturday & Sunday, Oct. 4 & 5. This popular restaurant and bar is under new ownership with an updated menu, a much broader selection of local craft brews, and it’s been redecorated with an emphasis on the woodsy life. This weekend, though, the premises will be transformed into a Bavarian-style beer hall with an array of German food and wide variety of fest biers. Plus, you’ll be there when the venue’s Little Dipper Brewing Company releases its new IPA, “The Guvnor.” The menu features sausages, schnitzels, pretzels, sauerkraut and more to satisfy Oktoberfest cravings. The brewpub will serve specialty Bavarian “fest biers“ from two of Germany’s most famous breweries: Cloister Andechs and Weihenstephaner. To learn more, visit www.northwoodpublichouse.com.

Northwood’s Oktoberfest is absolutely free to attend and is open to all ages from noon to 10 p.m. on both days, although you can come at 11 a.m. for a bit of lunch and a pre-fest pint. There’ll be live music with polka-rock (it’s a real thing!) from Those Darn Accordians, foot-stomping cello-and-guitar melodies from Hilst & Coffeey, as well as yoo-hoos from The Wild Yodeler and traditional toe-tingling tunes from The Polka Queen.

This popular restaurant and bar—which will be the subject of the “Devour” column in the winter edition of North Bank magazine—is under new ownership with an updated menu, a much broader selection of local craft brews, and it’s been redecorated with an emphasis on the woodsy life.

Bargains & Brews at Battle Ground Village

The Battle Ground Village Community Garage Sale is happening rain or shine (but probably shine) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30, at Battle Ground Village, in conjunction with the popular Battle Ground Village Outdoor Market. You can either come to scour the garage sale for bargains, or you can register to sell your own stuff online at www.bgvillage.com.

It’s only $10 to register and that gets you a ten-by-ten-foot space in which to peddle your wares. The garage sale organizers recommend that participants bring a canopy because the midday sun can be strong (plus, customers will be motivated to seek out your shade). There are a few rules about what you can sell: no guns or weapons, no food, no naughty adult-type things (you know what we mean), and no new items (unless they’re “collectables”). Set-up for vendors begins at 8 a.m.

Whether you’re buying or selling, the Outdoor Market and Community Garage Sale will be a destination worth visiting, and you’ll want to visit the newly revamped Northwood Public House and Brewery (formerly Laurelwood). The new owners have updated the menu and are already debuting their own brews on tap, as well as an adventurous selection of local Northwest craft beer. If you’re feeling bold, you can sample the habañero-laced hard apple cider—but prepare yourself for a sweet-spicy kick!
