Oktoberfest at Santa Monica Brew Works


Santa Monica Brew Works Joins the World’s Largest
Celebration of Beer with a Special New Release!

A taste of the world’s largest celebration of beer in Munich is coming to Santa Monica. Oktoberfest at Santa Monica Brew Works (SMBW) kicks off Friday, September 20 and will run through September 30 at our brewery’s Tasting Room (1920 Colorado Ave. Santa Monica, CA 90404), conveniently located only two blocks from the 17th Street Metro LA Expo Line stop. Rotating food trucks will feature Bavarian-inspired fare during the opening weekend. Prost!

In celebration, we will unveil a special limited-edition brew just for the occasion, Festbier Lager. Brewed in the spirit of the classic lagers served in the tents and beer halls of Munich, Festbier is crafted using all-German malts and yeast borrowed from Bavaria’s oldest brewery.

“Our Festbier Lager is brewed with all-German malts and a yeast strain derived from the oldest brewery in Bavaria – it might just be the closest you can get to Munich without cramming onto a 12-hour flight. The flavor is so crisp and refreshing you’ll want to toast this one all day long.”

With the purchase of a Festbier Lager on tap revelers can upgrade their order to receive a commemorative SMBW Oktoberfest logo glass mug. Festbier Lager is also available in limited-release 19.2 oz. cans to-go.
