Available now through October 23
Rock Bottom Brewery will continue their annual Rocktoberfest celebration well through October, offering a special Bavarian-style menu and house made German brew. The special menu, featuring German dishes with a twist, will be available now through October 23 at both lunch and dinner service (full menu listed below).
Brewmaster Chris Rafferty’s “Rocktoberfest” brew is now on tap (drafts available through October or while supplies last). The Marzen-style German beer celebrates over 200 years of festival tradition, and is served in a half-liter steins for $5.50, or jumbo, one-liter steins for $11. Those who would like to take home the special stein as a souvenir can purchase them for $8 (half-liter) and $11 (one-liter). Image available.
Full-bodied with a classic sweet flavor, Rocktoberfest is an award-winning, Oktoberfest-style beer that is rich with a toasted malt character and finishes with a subtle crisp hop.
BONUS: Rock Bottom encourages Rocktoberfest celebrants to snap a great photograph with their friends, with their steins and with their lederhosen at a Rock Bottom location. The “Best of the Fest” photo contest winner will win a trip to Munich for Oktoberfest 2012. To enter, visit the Rock Bottom Brewery Chicago facebook page. (Second and third place winners will get gift cards, $200 and $100.)
