What Munich started in 1810 has since become an annual tradition for beer lovers all over the world. And here in Miami, we’re all about it! Every fall, different South Florida bars, restaurants and even German-American organizations honor the annual German beer festival with celebrations that bring Oktoberfest to life. Running from late September through mid-October, these German-inspired festivals promise Bavarian food, beer, music, games and fun for the whole family. Prost, Miami! It’s time to pretend we’re in Munich.

25th Anniversary Fritz & Franz Bierhaus Oktoberfest

Miami’s most popular bierhaus, Fritz & Franz, is a restaurant staple in Coral Gables—and this year, it’s celebrating 25 years of its popular Fritz & Franz Bierhaus Oktoberfest! In honor of the festivities, the restaurant will host an all-day “beerfest party” with good German food, good German music and of course, good German beer. Waitresses will be clad in their usual dirndl, and the fun will take place every Thursday through Sunday during the 11-day period. See dates and times here.
