Oktoberfest Pub Crawl
Thursday, October 3rd, 6:30 PM
17 West Adams Street
Chicago, IL 60603
What started more than 200 years ago as a wedding celebration in Munich, Germany, is now a world-wide celebration of something even more sacred and beautiful. Beer.
We're talking Oktoberfest, and we're crunching 16 days of festivities into one Chicago evening full of German beer, food, and Vergnügen (fun!). Join CitySwarm for an Oktoberfest Pub Crawl to some of Chicago's most authentic German bars.
Our celebration begins at 6:30 PM at The Berghoff, conveniently located in the heart of the Loop. You've probably passed by 100 times, not knowing that this historic Chicago landmark (family owned and operated since 1898) received the first liquor license in Chicago after Prohibition.
They also have their own Berghoff beer, first sold at the Chicago's World Fair of 1893! To kickoff our crawl, each guest will receive a Berghoff Dortmunder-style beer, the perfect pairing to your plate of authentic German food including a mini-brat, potato pancakes, and Spätzle (a German noodle).
As you're starting to feel the die Wiesn spirit, grab a 6-pack of ice cold Berghoff beer for the road (optional), and soon after our private trolley will scoop us up and escort us to Lincoln Square, a neighborhood best known for its German influences and German bars.
We'll head straight to the famed Chicago Brauhaus where another beer stein awaits! Chicago Brauhaus, featured on the Food Network, boasts one of the most traditional Bavarian atmospheres in Chicago. You'll feel like you're in Germany as you dance and yodel to the live music stylings of the Brauhaus Oktoberfest trio featuring Gody (a.k.a. The Austrian Elvis)!
As your last chicken dance wraps up, our trusty trolley (packed with delicious Pretzel Crisps) will grab us again and shuttle us to a modern take on the German Beer Hall - the recently re-opened Prost! in Lincoln Park! This neighborhood favorite is new and improved with six times its former capacity, countless communal tables, and dozens of German beers on tap! One last stein awaits as you celebrate the season (that is, until someone orders up Das Boot).
Our crawl ends here, but Prost! is more than equipped to keep the Oktoberfest Party going all night long.
