After a number of successful beer releases, Columbia’s Bierkeller German beer project is preparing to host its first ever pop-up German Biergarten this weekend, Sept. 17-18, at Guignard Brick Works in Cayce.
Since launching a few months ago, Bierkeller’s Scott Burgess has been working to schedule a series of pop-up events throughout the Columbia area. This weekend’s Oktoberfest will be the kickoff those events, with more in the coming (and cooler) months.
Bierkeller Oktoberfest will be a traditional style Biergarten with German food and music. The current Bierkeller lineup – Kölumbianer Kölsch, Braunbier, and Kellerbier – will all be on tap throughout the weekend and available for purchase in quarter, half and full liters. Biertokens (wooden tokens you can purchase and exchange for beer) will be available during the event for $2.50 each and can be used that weekend or at any Bierkeller event in the future. Quarter liters will cost one token; half liters will cost two tokens; full liters will cost four tokens.
The event begins at 4 PM Saturday and 1 PM Sunday, and admission is free. The Wurst Wagen and other vendors will be serving food and The Channelheimers German Oompah band will be performing Saturday.
