From September through October, hardly a weekend goes by in Greater Miami & Miami Beach without a fun-filled Oktoberfest event on the calendar. Fans of German culture and Bavarian-style beer can choose from any of these festivities (or attend them all) to get their annual fill of frosty stein mugs, brats, pretzels and lederhosen, along with plenty of song, dance and celebration.

September 18 – 26: Miami Beer Week at Est.33 Thai Craft Brewery & Kitchen

Oktoberfest hits Brickell City Centre at Est.33 Thai Craft Brewery & Kitchen, which will host the inaugural Miami Beer Week from September 18-26. In celebration of Miami’s ever-evolving brewing culture, the festivities will include Bavarian-style brews from a variety of local establishments, including Cerveceria La Tropical, The Tank Brewing Co., Focal Brewing Company, Gulf Stream Brewing Company and more. Guest chefs like Cindy Hutson will team up with the Est.33 kitchen to collaborate on special dishes throughout the week. Est.33 will also debut two new German-style beers made in its in-house brewery by head brewer Todd Space. The week will be filled with special events, dinner parties and tastings to sate any beer aficionado’s appetite for specialty suds and good grub.

September 25: Oktoberfest Block Party at Leah Arts District

Head to Hialeah and the Leah Arts District for the inaugural Oktoberfest Block Party hosted by Unbranded Brewing Co. on September 25, from 3 p.m. to 1 a.m. Packed with food vendors and craft suds as far as the eye can see, the family-friendly event also promises a mechanical bull and contests ranging from yodeling to stein-hoisting.
